SlikDealer New Tab

What is SlikDealer New Tab?

SlikDealer New Tab is not a new browser extension; in fact, it does not even seem to be active yet. Yet, our malware experts at say that finding it in your Google Chrome browser could be a sign of other, more serious malware threats hiding on board. Since this search page tool does not mean direct threat to you or to your system, we have categorized it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Strangely enough, this PUP is not available for download on its own official webpage. You should know that it was created by First Offer (, which seems to be a group specializing in online monetization. This obviously means that this search page is not really designed for your benefit but to promote third parties, who may not always be trustworthy. Although this Chrome browser extension features all kinds of coupons and links to coupon-related pages, it may expose you to unreliable third-party advertisements and links. It seems that this PUP targets the US market mainly. We recommend that you remove SlikDealer New Tab as soon as possible since it is a useless tool that may well be risky to use, too.testtesttest

Where does SlikDealer New Tab come from?

You can find the official page at; however, the download button does not seem to work as it simply reloads the page. What is even more suspicious, there are three Chrome web store pages promoting this PUP:


The statistics on these pages show that only 2 people have installed this tool in the past year, since this extension was released in April, 2017. Now, this already should be enough for you to want to delete SlikDealer New Tab from your computer if you have it. But it is quite possible that these are not the only channels for you to install this useless app.

It is possible that you will also find this PUP spreading in freeware bundles or by unsafe third-party pop-ups. The latter case is clearly the better one since you may only infect your computer with this useless extension, which cannot really be called a dangerous threat. However, if you install a bundle, chances are that you infect your system with a bunch of all kinds of malware threats as well as a few PUPs. A bundle could carry adware programs, Trojans, fake alerts, and browser hijackers as well. This is why you should stay away from shady file-sharing websites when you want to download free stuff. Also, you need to refrain from engaging with suspicious third-party advertisements on questionable websites. If you want to be certain that your PC is safe for you to use, we suggest that after you delete SlikDealer New Tab, you apply a reliable online malware scanner to detect all threats on your computer.

As we have mentioned, the creator team, First Offer, specializes in innovative online monetization. This means that they create tools that can be used as a platform for affiliates to be promoted. However, there is never guarantee for you that all the content you will see is reliable. When you install this PUP, it set your new tab and default search engine to "", which is a search page with coupons and related website links. If you run a web search using this tool, you will end up on a Google search result page. But this page could be modified; at least, once this PUP is up and running. It seems that after almost one year it still does not function properly. Still, it is essential to know that landing on a modified search results page can introduce you to potentially unreliable web content in the form of third-party ads and promoted links. One click on the wrong content could infect your computer or take you to a website run by cyber criminals. This is why we suggest that you remove SlikDealer New Tab as soon as you can.
