CryptoTab Browser

Posted: March 17, 2021

The CryptoTab Browser is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP,) which may end up on your computer because you downloaded it intentionally, or because it was silently installed via a low-quality software bundle. According to the website of the CryptoTab Browser, users can benefit from using this application, because it will use their CPU to mine for cryptocurrency whenever they are browsing the Web. Of course, users will generate cryptocurrency for their own wallet – however, CryptoTab Browser's creators may also take a small cut. While this offer may seem attractive, you can rest assured that the CryptoTab Browser is incapable of generating more than a few dollars every few months. And the cost of generating these few dollars may be significant – while the CryptoTab Browser is active, it will drain all your CPU resources, therefore hindering the performance of the entire system. On top of this, it may cause your CPU to operate at higher temperatures, therefore shortening its lifespan.

If you did not install CryptoTab Browser intentionally, then we suggest that you remove this application as soon as you can. While it is not dangerous, it does not have any useful features and, as stated above, it may impact your system performance in a negative manner. You can try uninstalling CryptoTab Browser manually, but it is better to take care of the task with the use of an up-to-date antivirus software suite.
