StreaminSearchs

What is StreaminSearchs?

The name of StreaminSearchs does not make sense. It is easy to assume that this extension can help find sources for movie or TV series streaming, but that is not what it does. In fact, it is just a search tool, and it does not offer any additional services. Its interface represented via portal.streaminsearchs.com offers a PDF converter, a currency converter, a cryptocurrency converter, a calculator, and a favorites tab, and while these tools are free to use, it is important to focus on the PUP. PUP stands for “potentially unwanted program,” and our Anti-Spyware-101.com team has identified it as that due to several reasons. Hopefully, you are currently researching the extension to see whether or not to install it, in which case, all you need to do is read this report to understand why implementing the PUP is not recommended. However, if you have installed it already, we can help you delete it. Continue reading, and you will learn how to remove StreaminSearchs manually.test

How does StreaminSearchs work?

At the time of research, StreaminSearchs did not have an official download website. It was not offered via the Chrome Web Store either. This is surprising because most of its clones – which include Rolling Search, SearchOpedia, Sealoid, SearchConverterHD, and many other PUPs – have installers on this popular platform. Our hope is that this extension will not spread in the future, but even if it does not have an official downloader and cannot use a legitimate app platform, that does not mean that Google Chrome users cannot be exposed to it. It could still be distributed via bundled downloaders or sources we have yet to discover. It is important that you scan your system if you have installed the PUP along with other questionable pieces of software, but you should perform a full system scan in any scenario. If you end up discovering other threats with a trusted scanner, evaluate them to see which ones should be deleted first, or implement a tool that will eliminate all threats at once.

While the tools introduced via the StreaminSearchs’s interface – which is represented via the New Tab after the installation of the PUP – can be useful, we recommend removing this extension. There are a few reasons for that. First of all, this extension is promoted as a search tool, and it certainly cannot offer legitimate and reliable search services. According to our research, StreaminSearchs redirects to Yahoo Search. You can conduct searches via the PUP’s interface and, likely, via the address bar because it should change the default search provider to feed.streaminsearchs.com. It is most likely that the results you see are modified to include sponsored content. What kind of content is that? Since it could be unique in every case, we do not dare to make any predictions. That being said, do you trust a search tool that, first, redirects to a popular search engine and introduces modified results? Another thing to consider is the PUP’s ability to track information about you and your actions online. Do you want this strange extension to spy on you? If you do not, there is only one thing left to do.
