Where does NewVideoSearch come from?

This browser extension has many ways to reach its target system, as it has several official distribution channels, and it can also reach you through third-party sources. However, no matter how this extension reaches you, it still gets added to your browser with your permission. Thus, if you don’t remember adding NewVideoSearch, you must not have been paying attention to what you were browsing.

So, the official distribution channels for NewVideoSearch include the main homepage at and the Chrome Web Store page. Since the extension doesn’t hide its presence, it wouldn’t be right to say it’s a browser hijacker. Even if you add it through third-party sources, you should still receive a notification that asks you whether you want to Add to Chrome this extension or not. If you don’t pay attention to what you’re clicking, NewVideoSearch enters your browser.

To put it simply, NewVideoSearch isn’t sophisticated enough to reach you surreptitiously. If you are attentive when you browse the web, it should be enough to avoid unwanted applications. Also, if you WANT to have NewVideoSearch on-board, you should go through the app’s privacy policy because there might be certain aspects that you do not like.

What does NewVideoSearch do?

Now, if we take a look at the page for NewVideoSearch on the Chrome Web Store, we find a generic description that is similar to many other extensions that have emerged recently. It also says that there are over 9,000 users who have added the extension to their browsers, but we cannot know whether they added the app willingly or accidentally.

The main page says that this “product lets you browse the web and get easy access to search, images, videos, and news. This is a single purpose extension.” In fact, we have read the same line multiple times before. It only shows that there are many other extensions released by the same group, and they do not differ much.

With that, we can tell that NewVideoSearch changes the default search engine settings, and all of your queries get redirected to a modified Yahoo! Search page. It means that the extension cannot provide you with a unique search service. It needs to outsource, so what’s the point of having it when you can just use a search engine of your choice directly?

Not to mention that NewVideoSearch displays modified search results. The results are modified based on your likes and preferences, and this information is collected through browsing history monitoring. The extension informs you about the monitoring right before you add it, but we think that users seldom pay attention to that.

NewVideoSearch probably employs tracking cookies to collect information on your browsing history. This tactic is very common, and it’s not illegal. However, it could be exploited by malevolent third parties. While NewVideoSearch can display commercial offers that are related to your likes and preferences, the app cannot guarantee the safety of that third-party content you will encounter when you click on those links.
