What is My Horoscope Tab?

My Horoscope Tab is an extension that you might have downloaded onto your Google Chrome browser without putting in much thought. It offers horoscopes-related content, and it also presents its own search tool. That might be the extent of what you know about this PUP (potentially unwanted program), and that is a shame. It would not be just to say that this extension is completely useless – because it provides easy-access links to pages – but to identify it as a useful tool would be irresponsible as well.

On the contrary, it can expose you to potentially unreliable content too. Perhaps you have figured that out already, and all you want is a removal guide. We have this prepared for you, but before you delete My Horoscope Tab, we suggest reading the report to learn about this extension.test

So, how did you download My Horoscope Tab? If you do not know how this PUP got in, or if you remember installing it along with other extensions or programs carried in the same bundle, you must scan your system now.

If that is what you are doing right now, we are sure that you will decide not to install a PUP that clearly causes issues.

At the top, you have easy-access links, all of which route to, and a few general interest websites (email, weather, etc.). This, however, is not the main attraction. Our researchers believe that My Horoscope Tab was created for the sole purpose of promoting a search tool that is represented with a dialog box within If you use this tool, you are rerouted via to Yahoo Search. Many users are likely to know and trust this engine. Is that a mistake? In this situation it is a mistake because the PUP modifies the results you are shown to include sponsored content. Who is behind this content? Can they be trusted? Are you safe clicking on sponsored links? These are questions we cannot answer with certainty, and that is why we believe that it is best for you to delete the PUP.
