What is Pdf2DocPro?

Pdf2DocPro is a browser extension compatible with the Google Chrome browser. It is presented as a beneficial piece of software that works as a PDF converter: “Get an easy and free PDF to DOC/DOC to PDF converter and translator!.” Because of this, we would not be surprised at all if its popularity increases considerably over time. Researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com have a different opinion about it. They consider Pdf2DocPro a browser hijacker and do not recommend installing it. If you have found yourself on the Chrome Web Store but still cannot decide whether or not you should install this add-on, you should definitely refrain yourself from doing that because your Google Chrome settings will be altered, and we are sure that there are better tools for converting documents available. Can you already locate a browser extension with finccmbmjdmhdcdjkfkkfdkbodjgelpc or ndgiipgjbobbpfaoceclhnckcagimhcn IDs in the add-ons manager on your browser? If so, our only piece of advice for you would be to get rid of it ASAP. It is far from extremely dangerous malware, but it is definitely not a fully trustworthy application either, so it would be better if Pdf2DocPro is completely removed.

What does Pdf2DocPro do?

Pdf2DocPro is promoted as a free conversion tool that also allows users to use a free translator, but, unfortunately, we cannot confirm that it is extremely beneficial software. As has been observed by malware researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com, this browser extension will only change the main settings on your Google Chrome browser. To be more specific, you will find your Start page, New tab URL, and your default homepage changed to search.pdf2docpro.com. This page contains a search box and buttons opening third-party file conversion and translation services. You could access them even if you did not have Pdf2DocPro installed on your computer, so we see no reason why you should keep this piece of software installed on your computer. As for the promoted search tool, it did not show any modified search results at the time of research, but it does not mean that it cannot provide you with sponsored links in the future. Therefore, if you use it, you should be attentive in order not to click on them. Of course, it would be best not to use search tools set by browser hijackers at all. As mentioned, you would no longer see the page set on your web browser if you delete Pdf2DocPro.

If Pdf2DocPro stays installed, it will also automatically gather several types of information. First, is interested in the so-called technical information. It consists of various details about your device. Second, it will record the usage information, i.e. details related to your “use and interaction with your device, including the Software & Services and Other Software.” Third, it might record your interactions on social networks through Pdf2DocPro. Finally, it will collect certain registration-related and support-related information, e.g. information you provide about yourself when registering for the service and other details you provide for the Support.

Where does Pdf2DocPro come from?

If you can locate Pdf2DocPro next to other extensions, it means that you have installed this piece of software consciously from the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pdf2docpro/finccmbmjdmhdcdjkfkkfdkbodjgelpc?hl=en or https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pdf2docpro/ndgiipgjbobbpfaoceclhnckcagimhcn?hl=en), or it has found a way to enter your computer without your knowledge. Software that changes browsers’ settings without permission is usually spread in software bundles. On top of that, users might install such software on their computers by clicking on advertisements promoting it. Either way, it would be best to uninstall Pdf2DocPro. The sooner it is gone from your system, the better.
