Rolling Search

What is Rolling Search?

We have been seeing the term “single purpose extension” in the descriptions of many recent potentially unwanted programs, Rolling Search being one of them. This PUP belongs to the webcoapps family, along with Twisted Search, SearchZilla, Vista Search, Searchsio, and other “single purpose extensions.” What does that mean? That means that they were created for the sole purpose of providing Google Chrome users with a web search service. Unfortunately, although the creator had one job, it did not develop a search service that could aid anyone. Every single tool created by webcoapps redirects to Yahoo Search, where the results are modified to include sponsored links from third-party advertisers. This is why they are identified as PUPs and why we strongly advocate for deleting them. In this report, we focus on explaining how to delete Rolling Search, and so if that is what you are interested in, continue reading. Also, note that you can ask us questions in the comments section below. Our experienced researchers will get back to you ASAP.test

How does Rolling Search work?

Rolling Search can be downloaded from the Chrome store (, or you could find it attached to other programs that are introduced by third-party distributors. While we do not recommend installing the extension under any circumstances, from any source, it certainly is safer to use the Chrome store. If you have used an unfamiliar downloader, you should employ a legitimate and trusted malware scanner to investigate the programs installed on your operating system. Hopefully, nothing malicious is found, but you want to make sure of it. The PUP is introduced on the Chrome store as an amazing tool that can provide users with the “best way to search.” Undoubtedly, this is bound to attract some users. The description reveals that Yahoo Search is employed to show results, but it claimed that Rolling Search can “optimize” normal results, which might create an illusion that it is somehow superior to Yahoo Search. It is not. If you install the extension, it will spy on you to select and show the most personally attractive sponsored links.

If you go to, you can find a search dialog box that redirects your searches, but you can also find a PDF converter, a currency converter, a cryptocurrency converter, and a calculator. Access to these tools can be very attractive. That being said, you might not face this search engine at all because once Rolling Search is installed, it changes the default search provider alone. After this, every time you enter a keyword into the address bar, you are redirected to the modified search results via As revealed in the Privacy Policy of webcoapps, data-tracking technologies are employed to learn what users like and what they interact with, and so the sponsored links could both coincide with your search keywords and recent searches. Unfortunately, we do not know who the advertisers working with webcoapps are, and so we cannot guarantee that interacting with the sponsored results is safe. Where a risk of facing potentially unreliable links exists, we always recommend choosing an alternative service. Before you can set the desired default search provider, we recommend deleting Rolling Search.
