What is

Have you opened your Google Chrome browser and immediately noticed a new search engine set? If so, it means that the extension is installed. There are two ways how it could have entered your system. First, you have downloaded it willingly from or the Chrome Web Store (, or it has entered the system in a software bundle together with other applications. We do not blame users who download the MyDrivingtab extension willingly because it really looks like a beneficial piece of software at first glance. If you check any of its official sources, you will immediately notice that it makes many promises, for example, it is said that users could easily search maps, satellite images, and get driving directions if they install it. On top of that, MyDrivingtab promises to help users avoid heavy traffic. It becomes clear sooner or later that the software is not as beneficial as it claims to be. If you have understood that too and no longer want to keep the questionable extension installed, you need to remove it right now.

What does the extension do?

Even though the extension promises to act very beneficially, you will only notice a new search engine in the place of your default search provider and the New Tab page after you install it on your system. The search page used by this extension is At first glance, it looks like any other ordinary search tool. Also, it does not look harmful at all, so a bunch of users decide to keep it and use it as the default search engine. Of course, there is a group of people who cannot stand and wish to set the search engine and the New Tab page they like. If you are one of them, we suggest getting rid of this search engine ASAP. No, not only because it is irritating, but also because it might expose to potential threats. This might happen quickly. To be frank, it might be enough to click on a single advertisement this search engine shows. Some users think that they could protect their computers from harm by ignoring these advertisements. Unfortunately, it is not easy to do that in reality because these ads do not differ much from the rest of the search results the way they look, so it is a challenge to recognize and thus ignore them all. Therefore, in our opinion, you should not even try to do that.

The extension should be removed in the near future not only because its search engine might cause redirections to bad websites, but also because the extension itself and the search tool track users and collect information about them. It is said in the Privacy Policy that the three types of information are going to be recorded:

  • Technical information (technical information regarding the user’s device and software installed on the computer, including type, name, and version of operating system)
  • Usage information (usage-related information regarding the use and interaction with the device, e.g. how computer users use the Internet browser, web pages visited, content they see, etc.)
  • Support-related information, a.k.a. personal information provided voluntarily (e.g. email address, name, and other information submitted in the support form).

It is said that all these details might be shared with third parties too, which suggests that they might end up in the hands of bad guys, and you need to put an end to this activity as soon as possible. You can only do that by erasing the extension from the system.

How to remove the extension
