What is WatchMyTVShows Toolbar?

WatchMyTVShows Toolbar is an extension that Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox users can download for free, and some people are likely to think that downloading this extension would be a great idea. Our experts do not agree. According to our research, the extension is a PUP (potentially unwanted program) that does not offer incredibly useful services and that can help undisclosed third parties use the integrated search tool for advertising purposes. That being said, the interface of the toolbar can appear very colorful and interactive, and so some users might choose not to dig deeper. Nonetheless, the extension is pretty much useless, and it cannot hide that for too long. If you have already decided to remove WatchMyTVShows Toolbar, we have a guide that, hopefully, will help you clean your browsers and the entire operating system. Continue reading the report to learn all about the process, and do not forget to use the comments section if you want to ask us questions about the PUP and how to delete it.test

How does WatchMyTVShows Toolbar work?

We cannot know how you installed WatchMyTVShows Toolbar, but we can presume that you either used an official installer or an unofficial installer. The download website is, and is the location of the official installer for Google Chrome users. Were you introduced to this installer via a random pop-up or advertisement? Did you install the suspicious extension when you were downloading something else completely? If other threats or PUPs were installed along with the extension, you must examine them carefully to see whether you must delete them. Of course, the PUP itself always acts the same, and we recommend deleting it for the same reasons regardless of how you installed it. If you used the official download website, you might have been tricked into believing that the extension can help you watch “Free Episodes,” “Free Shows,” and “Free Online TV.” That is not how this PUP works, and you should realize that as soon as you install it on Chrome or Firefox.

Once WatchMyTVShows Toolbar is installed, it changes the homepage/New Tab page to introduce you to$%7BpartnerID%7D&n=$%7BinstallDateHex%7D&ptb=$%7BtoolbarID%7D&si=$%7BpartnerSubID%7D. This page is very colorful and fun looking, but the reality is that it only offers easy-access links to ABC, Amazon Prime, AMC, CBS, Comedy Central, CW, FOX, HBO, Hulu, NBC, Netflix, Showtime, College Sports Live, ESPN Watch Live, NBC Sports, MLB, Vulture, Facebook, eBay, Amazon, Walmart, and other popular websites. Without a doubt, the PUP cannot offer you free access to Netflix or Hulu; however, some people might find it useful to have access to all of these websites in one place. Well, you could bookmark them to have access to them from your browser, and that is one reason to remove the PUP. It simply is not useful.

Our main reason to get rid of this extension is its suspicious search service. The search dialog box introduced via the New Tab page/hompage redirects to Both the toolbar and the search tool are represented by Ask Applications, Inc., also known as Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. This company created LearnTheLyrics Toolbar, GiffySocial Toolbar, and many other well-known PUPs. They all show advertisements along with normal search results, and they all track user information to assist the undisclosed third parties.

Undoubtedly, it cannot offer free access to content on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or other linked services. Besides that, the search tool presented via the New Tab is also unreliable.
