What is My1tab Extension?

My1tab is a browser extension that falls to the category of potentially unwanted programs, which  are usually distributed alongside other free programs. The My1tab extension is  owned and operated by Aztec Media Inc, a Cyprus-based company. The extension is promoted on its so-called official website, which loads as a search engine, and in the Chrome web store, where this application is presented very briefly. Our advice is that you remove the My1tab extension from your Chrome browser, especially if you have recently find that it has changed your browser settings.

The official website and the Chrome store are not the only methods of promotion. The My1tab extension is also advertised by different types of advertisements that are usually displayed when an adware program or other piece of malware is present on the PC. In order to prevent installation of questionable programs, it is crucial to ignore third-party advertisements, which may vary in size and type. The My1tab extension is an ad-supported product, which is why it is available at no charge, and we strongly recommend that you remove it from your browser.test

Moreover, below the search box, you can find links to popular social networking websites, including Facebook, Twitter, and LindkedIn. Even though these seemingly handy links are supposed to enhance users' browsing, not all computer users are satisfied about the links displayed.
