What is QuickLogin?

QuickLogin is an extension for your Chrome and Firefox browsers that is supposed to make it easier for you to access your email accounts. The extension should interest only those who have multiple accounts with multiple service providers. Even in that case, the extension is pretty useless because it displays easy-access links to Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Outlook login pages only. This is one of the reasons we identify this extension as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. According to our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, it is extremely important to weigh all pros and cons before you decide if this allegedly useful extension is worth your trust. We know for a fact that it was built by the same party who created Search Manager, which is yet another potentially unwanted program. Needless to say, it is strange that the same company is linked to two suspicious programs. That is not a good sign. Of course, we want you to decide for yourself if you should trust or remove QuickLogin. Continue reading to learn more.test

How does QuickLogin work?

According to our analysis, QuickLogin is introduced at quicklogin.io. That being said, Chrome users can install it from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/quicklogin/ojifkhgcgmapiocdplfoehalhhfcakhe (at Chrome web store) only, and both Chrome and Firefox users are most likely to come across the installer via a suspicious advertisement or promotional pop-up. There is also a good chance that you used a bundled downloader to acquire QuickLogin, in which case, there is a good chance that other suspicious programs were installed along with the PUP. Do not assume that you are fine without doing some research first. Install a trusted malware scanner and run it to have your entire operating system inspected. If malicious programs are found, do not ignore them. The sooner you delete existing threats, the safer you will be. If nothing else that deserves your attention is found, you want to focus on the PUP itself. Our researchers inform that it can change the homepage and the new tab page on your browser upon installation. If you go through with the installation, you will give the PUP the privilege to read and change your information on visited sites, replace the new tab, record browsing history, and even manage apps. If you are not comfortable with this, do not install the PUP. If it is installed already, delete it!

Are you concerned about the search tool associated with QuickLogin? You always need to be very cautious about the search services that potentially unwanted programs offer. Why? Because, in many cases, they redirect without permission and exploit well-known services to showcase unreliable search results. It was found that QuickLogin redirects to Yahoo Search, and since that is done without any warning, we are worried. The good news is that the results are not modified, but even in this case, you want to remove the PUP because its services are useless. If you keep using Yahoo Search via the PUP, all queries you enter and all clicks you make will be analyzed by the PUP. Now that is just unnecessary, considering that the extension is only meant to help you access email accounts. Speaking of that, did you know that you can add quick access links of these accounts to your bookmarks bar? If you do that, the extension becomes completely useless. Overall, there is not a single reason you should not remove it.
