Posted: January 8, 2021

4KSportSearch is a suspicious browser extension, which might pique the interest of sports fans. According to 4KSportSearch's download page, the add-on allows you to receive instant updates and news from the world of sports. Furthermore, it is meant to enhance your ability to search the Web for sports-related content by introducing you to a new search engine. However, 4KSportSearch's usefulness is questionable – it seems that the primary purpose of the extension is to increase the traffic that the sites at Portal.4ksportssearch.com and Feed.4ksportssearch.com receive. It does this by setting them as the Web browser's default new tab page and search engine.

4KSportSearch is classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP,) and you should not consider it a threat. However, you should know that you agree to allow it to apply changes to your Web browser's configuration by installing it. Reversing these changes might not be possible unless you remove 4KSportSearch first.

If you do not wish to use 4KSportSearch and the sites it promotes, then we suggest that you take care of this PUP's immediate removal. The most efficient way to complete this operation is to run an up-to-date computer security tool.
