Where does Online Radio Finder Tab come from?

When it comes to potentially unwanted programs, they tend to have many ways to reach target systems. The same applies to Online Radio Finder Tab as well. This extension clearly has a page on the Chrome Web Store, but users would seldom open the page to add the extension directly. Also, the app might have an official homepage, but we also doubt whether the users would encounter the main homepage directly when they browse the web. It is far more likely that users add the extension to Chrome when they visit some websites that promote such applications.

Let’s think of all the video streaming and online gaming sites that you visit on a regular basis. Or any other page that displays a lot of commercial ads. If those pages automatically launch random pop-ups and new windows with all sorts of offers and notifications, there is a good chance that one of the offers might be related to Online Radio Finder Tab. In some cases, users don’t even notice how they click the Add button because they are too preoccupied with closing the pop-up window.

This is why we always emphasize how important it is to change your browsing habits. Being more attentive and responsible about the websites you visit and the content you interact with is important if you want to avoid all sorts of cybersecurity issues. Hence, although Online Radio Finder Tab is not a direct system security threat, it would be better to avoid it and all the other similar applications that could expose you to dubious content.

However, the modifications that Online Radio Finder Tab performs are laid out in the notification. And by adding the extension, you agree to authorize those modifications:

  • Replace the page you see when opening a new tab

Search, but why reach it through Online Radio Finder Tab when you can simply access it directly?
