Where does TheGameSearcher come from?

Some users install TheGameSearcher themselves willingly from official sources promoting it, whereas others cannot explain how this potentially unwanted program has entered their computers, but it seems that the majority of people from both groups do not like what they see, i.e. altered Google Chrome settings and decide to get rid of it. You should do that too even if you have downloaded it from the Chrome Web Store or its official website because this piece of software is still a potentially unwanted program no matter where you get it from. It is not malicious, but it might still bring you problems, so if we were you, we would not keep it active. Of course, you are the one who can make decisions in this situation.

What does TheGameSearcher do?

Once TheGameSearcher affects Google Chrome browsers, it immediately changes their settings. Specifically speaking, it alters default search tools on them. As a consequence, if you type “game” and press Tab, i.e. activate the search tool it promotes and enter a search query, it will be taken to first and only then you will see Yahoo! search results displayed on your Desktop. This suggests that you might be presented with modified search results too. They are not dangerous, but you should not click on them if you do not want to end up on suspicious websites. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm that it is very easy to avoid those modified search results. Since they do not differ much from the rest of the search results returned, it might be extremely hard to distinguish them. You will be sure that it is impossible to click on them only if you do not use the search tool TheGameSearcher promotes. There is one more reason you should stop using it and remove this potentially unwanted program completely. If TheGameSearcher stays, it will collect information sent by your device automatically. Speaking specifically, the author of this extension could access technical information about the machine you use, your IP address, Internet Service Provider, your interests, etc. As for personal details that could identify you personally, it should not be able to access them without your knowledge. That is, if you do not provide these details, it will not record them.
