PDF To Pro

What is PDF To Pro?

PDF To Pro is meant to provide you with access to popular converter tools, and that already lets you know that it is not useful. If you end up installing this extension, your New Tab page on Google Chrome is replaced, and the interface of the introduced webpage presents easy-access links to websites, where users can, allegedly, convert files. The websites that the PUP (potentially unwanted program) promoted at the time of research were cloudconvert.com, allfilesconverter.com, and freepdfconvert.com. It goes without saying that you do not need to install anything to access these websites. On the contrary, it is easier to access them without any extensions installed. All you have to do is visit the website, click Ctrl+D keys to bookmark it, and then you can access it directly from your browser’s homepage. This is not the only reason we recommend deleting PDF To Pro. In fact, it is not even the main reason. We suggest removing the PUP because we think that using it could be dangerous.test

How does PDF To Pro work?

Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers inform that PDF To Pro was created by Eightpoint Technologies, the same company that gave us My Horoscope Tab, Quick Radio Search, and literally hundreds of other potentially unwanted programs that we do not recommend trusting. In most cases, official download sites are set up to promote the PUPs created by the company, but PDF To Pro does not appear to have one. Instead, it is introduced at the Chrome Web Store – chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pdf-to-pro/oobbmgalnpjmenklebnonimcindehgim. Here, you are assured that the extension is both convenient and reliable. We do not believe that either is true. Although hp.hpdftopro.com (represented via New Tab) offers easy-access links to the aforementioned websites, the center of the page’s interface is dedicated to a search dialog box. The description on the Chrome Web Store informs that the PUP presents an allegedly convenient web search tool that is “powered by Yahoo,” but you might automatically assume that it is completely trustworthy. After all, we are talking about Yahoo Search here, right?

According to our research team, PDF To Pro modifies the results that you see on search.yahoo.com, which is where you are redirected to after you enter search keywords into the search box on hp.hpdftopro.com. What does that mean? It is not a secret that the PUP records browsing history, and the Privacy Policy further informs that it can employ web cookies and other technologies to gather user-related info. Some of it might even be personally identifiable. Unfortunately, the creator of PDF To Pro works with advertisers, and they have access to some of the information recorded by Eightpoint Technologies. They can use this information to hand-select the links that you are most likely to click on, and these are the links that the PUP is likely to inject into the search results you see on Yahoo Search. Without a doubt, because we do not know who the creator of the extension is partnered up with, we do not know if their intentions are to promote legitimate services or to scam people. Overall, the search tool is unpredictable, and this is the main reason we recommend deleting the PUP.

How to delete PDF To Pro

If you want to convert your files to different formats safely, you have to choose tools that cannot jeopardize your security. Unfortunately, there is a chance that PDF To Pro could do that by recording your browsing activity and then messing with the search results you see on Yahoo Search. If the services of the PUP were useful, we would understand why people might want to ignore the security issues. However, the services offered by the PUP are not useful, and so there is no reason to drag out its removal. Follow the instructions below to remove PDF To Pro manually, or employ a trusted anti-malware tool that can take care of PUPs and all other threats automatically.
