Nyoogle Search

What is Nyoogle Search?

Nyoogle Search is a questionable Google Chrome browser extension that may put your system security at risk. In fact, our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have labeled this threat source as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Although it may not be as dangerous as an adware or ransomware program, it can still cause indirect threats. We have found that this PUP has already been blocked and removed by Google from the Chrome web store, and its official website is down, too. This means that you cannot install it officially; yet, it is possible that you will find it on your computer. It is quite likely that this PUP is spread in questionable ways, which usually also means that you may have other threats on board endangering your system and the normal operations of your computer. We suggest that you remove Nyoogle Search as soon as possible if you do not want to let further infections onto your PC.

Where does Nyoogle Search come from?

The official website of this PUP used to be at nyoogle.info; however, visiting it now will not take you far since this site seems to be down. And, so is the Chrome web store page, which is already quite suspicious. In other words, if you find this PUP in your browser, you should not hesitate to delete it right now. But it is still possible that you will install it from questionable sources. Let us give you some tips so that you can avoid this threat and possibly more serious ones as well.

It is possible that you click on an unsafe third-party pop-up ad on a suspicious website, which may claim that you need to install the latest Flash version to be able to see content on the page. But it can also claim that your browser has detected malware on your system and you need to install a security tool right now. In any case, if you are not an experienced computer user, you may actually think that it is a good idea to install the offered update or tool right away. However, in the background you may simply install this questionable search page or other threats as well. But you can also drop a freeware bundle on your computer while trying to download a free program or a cracked version from a shady file-sharing website. Yet another option is that your computer is already infected with adware and you click on a third-party ad generated by this infection on your system. All in all, it is best to delete Nyoogle Search and then, run a full system scan using a legit online malware scanner.

How does Nyoogle Search work?

It is possible that this PUP does not even work anymore. It is supposed to customize your Google search logo, which is probably the least beneficial thing we have ever heard and makes you wonder who would ever install such a tool. It is quite possible that when this search engine works, it shows you modified search results, which can be used to promote affiliates who are not always to be trusted. This is how you may click on unreliable ads and links, and end up on malicious websites on new tabs or in new browser windows. These redirections can be very annoying but you may also harm your computer by dropping infections in the background. It is also possible that this PUP shows pop-up ads as well. So, if you have found out that it is indeed installed in your Chrome browser, you may want to act now and remove Nyoogle Search from it. Let us tell you how to do it.

How do I delete Nyoogle Search?

Please note that it is important that you only visit legitimate and reputable websites and do not click on random third-party advertisements if you would like to keep your computer more or less clean of infections. However, even this may not always help because cyber crooks have some tricks up their sleeve.
