How does QuickMapsAndDirections work?

The suspicious QuickMapsAndDirections (by Eightpoint Technologies Ltd. SEZC and Polarity Technologies Ltd.) is introduced to the public at quickmapsanddirections.com as well as the Chrome web store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/quick-maps-and-directions/hnhgcfpllcjgnlfpgobfibmkhcpmodij). If you have downloaded the PUP from these sources, it is possible that you have been redirected to them via pop-ups and advertisements. On the other hand, if you downloaded the PUP using a third-party source, you have to scan your operating system. This should not be an option but rather a necessity. Third-party installers are often set up to distribute a bundle of programs or malware, and so it is crucial that your scan your operating system immediately. The Download link below will help you download a free malware scanner that will let you know in just a few minutes if you need to delete malicious threats.

QuickMapsAndDirections attracts Chrome, Firefox, and IE owners using its services. It is advertised as a tool that can provide you with maps and directions from one place. In reality, it simply presents easy-access links to websites that make maps and directions available. These include Google Maps, Bing Maps, and Yahoo Maps. The links are represented via Search.hquickmapsanddirections.com that takes over the New Tab page and, on some browsers, the homepage. Due to this, it is sometimes classified as a browser hijacker. Although its interface provides links to popular websites (excluding map-related links, it also gives access to social media platforms, shopping sites, etc.), its main purpose it to work as a search engine. The search field in the center of the page does not look strange at all, but if you enter keywords into the box, you are automatically redirected to Yahoo Search, and that is a reason to remove QuickMapsAndDirections.

Just like Doppler Weather Radar, Obtenez Email, Get Daily Bible Verses, and many other PUPs created by Polarity Technologies Ltd., QuickMapsAndDirections uses seemingly attractive services as a distraction. In reality, these PUPs do not offer exclusive or original services, and it appears that they are created just to expose users to a dubious search service and to collect information about their virtual behavior. Why is the search service considered to be dubious? That is because, first of all, the search tool redirects to Yahoo Search without permission. Furthermore, the results are modified by the service operator, and we cannot guarantee that the results shown to you can be trusted.
