What is YourMailTab?

YourMailTab is supposed to provide you with access to Gmail, Outlook, AOL, and Yahoo email services from one toolbar. It is unlikely that many people use all of these emailing services, but if you do, you might find the extension especially useful. Have you considered adding links to the websites representing them to your browser’s bookmarks bar? That would have been easier. Of course, if your bookmarks bar is full, you might want and additional one represented via the new tab and the homepage. The extension does not actually add a bar per se. Instead, it introduces you to this page: Its interface shows the email links, and it also presents a search bar. Overall, the interface of the extension makes it seem like a search engine, but it is a search engine you cannot trust. As you might have gathered already, we suggest removing YourMailTab, and we have created this guide to help you delete this potentially unwanted program (PUP) right away.test

How does YourMailTab work?

You might have been introduced to YourMailTab via or the Chrome web store at According to these sources, the PUP can help you access email directly from your browser, and it can also present you with a “convenient web search tool.” According to our researchers at, the suspicious extension can change the homepage, default search provider, and new tab on Chrome and Firefox browsers to introduce you to the same tool. While the links routing to email services are harmless, the search tool is not. It appears that it can redirect to a third-party engine without your permission. This is strike one. YourMailTab redirects to Yahoo Search, and if you use on a daily basis, you might think that the service is not only not dangerous but, in fact, useful. The problem is that the results can be modified by the PUP. This is strike two. When the results are modified, you cannot trust them, and that’s when the credibility of the entire extension crumbles too.

Did you know that YourMailTab can collect personal and non-personal information? Did you also know that third parties might have the privilege of gaining access to this information? The Privacy Policy – which you can review at – reveals that information might be shared for advertising purposes, and so the modified results are likely to contain ads created by the associates of the PUP’s developer. The fact that information is collected and shared can be viewed as strike three. Do you need more to decide that it is best to delete YourMailTab? Hopefully, you realize already that this PUP is not trustworthy. Considering that it does not offer useful services either, it should be easy for you to make the decision regarding its removal.
