Templates Discovery Tab

What is Templates Discovery Tab?

Templates for cards, invitations, documents, forms, or certificates can be useful, which is why Templates Discovery Tab might seem like an attractive tool. This extension promises to give access to various templates, but our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team does not identify it as a useful tool. Instead, we identify it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). This is the conclusion that has been made after thoroughly inspecting the extension in an internal lab and finding out that it has many other functions, not just offering templates. In fact, it does not even produce templates of its own. Instead, it presents links to third-party websites, where templates can be found. So, in our eyes, the extension is neither useful nor trustworthy, and removing it seems like the only logical move. Are you ready to delete Templates Discovery Tab, or do you need more information about this PUP? In either way, you should keep reading.test

How does Templates Discovery Tab work?

Templates Discovery Tab is introduced by Eightpoint Technologies Ltd. at templatesdiscovery.com. Of course, if you click the button to install it, chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/templates-discovery-tab/gpmnjkmpbinfenjghncolchhmpeoamod is opened in a new window. This is a logical move in our eyes because that is exactly how all other PUPs created by the same company act. These include Access TV Streaming, Access Online Forms, My Email Checker Tab, and many others. Although they all seem to have official download websites and are represented via the Chrome Web Store also, watch out for bundled downloaders that could introduce them to you. Bundles are often set up to promote attractive tools – such as Templates Discovery Tab – to conceal something else. That could be another PUP or a malicious threat. Therefore, regardless of how you installed this extension, we advise scanning your system without hesitation. Hopefully, you will find nothing else, but if additional threats exist, you want to remove them as quickly as possible. Before you do that, do a quick search to learn more about the detected threats.

Truth be told, Templates Discovery Tab does not look unreliable. Hp.htemplatesdiscovery.com is set as the New Tab page, and when you open it, you can find a bunch of links to different templates. The only strange thing is that the PUP seems to promote template.net only because most links route to this website. Nonetheless, you can find templates on this site, and so you might be content with the service. Well, have you ever considered bookmarking the templates you use frequently? If you bookmark them, you can remove Templates Discovery Tab without any hesitation. All in all, it does not look like providing users with templates is the main job for the PUP. It uses query.htemplatesdiscovery.com to redirect all of your searches to Yahoo Search, and when you land on the results page, you might not even notice that the normal results are modified. The sponsored links injected by the PUP could even include highly attractive ones because it can spy on you and help third parties personalize the content shown to you. Note that even personal information is not off limits to this extension.
