Easy Gaming App

Posted: January 14, 2020

The Easy Gaming App is the name of a dubious browser extension that users might install because it promises to allow them to access to free and Web-based games that offer hours of entertainment. However, the installation of the Easy Gaming App add-on does no such thing – the game platforms that the Easy Gaming App advertises are public and accessible via a quick Web search easily. This means that there is no need to install 3rd-party software to access them. Quick access to games is not the only innovation that the Easy Gaming App add-on brings – it also will replace your Web browser's default search settings and new tab page, therefore forcing you to use a 3rd-party search engine.

The websites that the Easy Gaming App add-on promotes are found at Query.easygamingapptab.com and Search.easygamingapptab.com – both of these pages deliver search results by redirecting the user to Yahoo Search. However, we should note that all search queries you run through these pages may be collected and used to improve the advertisements you see while browsing websites associated with Easygamingapptab.com.

The behavior that the Easy Gaming App add-on exhibits is typical for Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), and it is not a surprise that the Easy Gaming App is classified as such by multiple security products. It is not mandatory to remove this browser extension since it does not pose a threat to your privacy and online safety. However, its removal is strongly recommended if you are dissatisfied with the changes it brought to your Web browser. The best way to remove the Easy Gaming App add-on and revert the changes it made is to use an up-to-date PC security tool.
