What is Mazy Search?

If you’re wondering about Mazy Search, you’re on the right page because we’re going to use this entry to tell you more about this browser extension. The application is intended for the Chrome browser. However, this extension is categorized as a potentially unwanted program. It means that it might be added to the browser accidentally, and users could be confused as to why this application is there in the first place. You can remove Mazy Search without too much difficulties, and there are the manual removal instructions at the bottom of this description.test

Where does Mazy Search come from?

It is very likely that this extension is designed by the same developers as GalaxySpin, Dictionary Pro, BoosterSearch, and other similar browser extensions. Recently, there has been an onslaught of Chrome extensions that supposedly provide a new useful function to the users who add the said extensions to their browsers.

What’s more, all these extensions (including Mazy Search) have official sources, and they need user’s authorization to be added to the target browsers. Therefore, even if users say that they don’t know how Mazy Search entered their system, the truth is that they agreed to add this extension even if they were not aware of it. Hence, it is necessary to be attentive if you want to avoid such applications.

Our research suggests that there is an official website for this program at There’s also a page on the Chrome Web Store. With the official sources out in the open, it would be too far-fetched to say that Mazy Search is an immediate computer security threat. Not to mention that it doesn’t really intend to infect target systems with malware or anything like that.

However, Mazy Search might still employ rather questionable distribution tactics. For instance, potentially unwanted programs are often distributed via software bundles. It means that users download programs from third-party sources (such as file-sharing websites), and when programs come from third-party sources, they might be bundled with additional apps and features that are easy to overlook. Hence, when you install new programs, you need to read the installation steps carefully. Most of the time, it is possible to deselect the unwanted features, but users tend to breeze through the setup, and that’s how unwanted apps enter the system.

What does Mazy Search do?

Right before Mazy Search gets added to the Chrome browser, it asks for permission to “change your search settings to:” If you don’t notice this requirement (and most of the affected users don’t), it might look like your browser was hacked by a browser hijacker, since it changes the default search provider.

Nevertheless, taking a closer look at the new “search engine,” we can see that Mazy Search merely uses the Google Search engine to provide you with the search results. Our research team also says that the results aren’t modified as it would usually happen with potentially unwanted programs. So here, we have a question, what’s the point of a mediator app if you can just access Google Search directly?

Of course, Mazy Search would introduce itself as an insanely useful tool. The team that created this extension saying that the team is “dedicated to creating genuine products which will be useful for our users. We tend to provide GRPR aligned products, always prioritizing users’ privacy.” So, it all might sound nice, but let’s not forget that these apps might also record your web browsing history, and later on, the recorded data could be used for online marketing schemes and other suspicious activities, since Mazy Search cannot really review the third-party content it promotes.
