What is TheConverterSearch?

TheConverterSearch is not a tool that offers highly attractive services. In fact, all it claims to be capable of doing is providing the “best way to search” the web. Without a doubt, some might be intrigued by such a grand claim, and perhaps that is why over 10,000 people have, supposedly, downloaded the add-on from If you have used this installer on the Chrome Web Store, you must know that the extension can change your search settings, read and change data on certain websites, and also read browsing data.

How does TheConverterSearch work?

Google Chrome users who face TheConverterSearch are likely to assume that this PUP is a unique tool. It absolutely is not, and its creator actually did not put in much effort at all. That is because it is an identical clone to AllConvertersSearches, SearchTheConverter, PDFSearchio, SearchConverters, and a bunch of other well-known PUPs that our research team has analyzed already. We do not know if one creator is responsible for them or if a bunch of different parties are using the same template. In either case, these potentially unwanted programs are unreliable and deserve removal. They all follow the same Privacy Policy, one copy of which can be found at This virtual document reveals that the PUP collects non-personal and personal information and can share it with parties that are left anonymous. Does that make you want to trust the PUP? If you do not want to worry about having private data leaked to unknown parties, you already have one reason to delete it from your Google Chrome browser.

Another reason why you should consider deleting TheConverterSearch is that it is useless. Although visitors of can use a free converter, this webpage is not introduced by the extension. Instead, it simply replaces the default search provider with, and this search tool is completely useless and, furthermore, unreliable. It is useless because it redirects to Yahoo Search, and as you know, you do not need to install any extensions to use this popular search tool. If you decide to remove TheConverterSearch, but you want to continue using, know that you can place it as your default search engine at any point. The PUP’s search tool is also considered to be unreliable because it modifies the results you are shown via Yahoo Search. Needless to say, the extension is extremely sneaky in how it promotes third-party content, and since we do not know what kinds of third-party ads could be shown to you, we suggest getting rid of the PUP without further delay. Before you figure out how to do that, employ a legitimate malware scanner to help you inspect the system.
