The Everyday Tab Google Chrome Extension is classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). While some users may have downloaded the extension directly from the Chrome Web Store, it is also being distributed as part of various software bundles that may not disclose all the programs that are going to be installed on the user's computer properly. After installation, the Everyday Tab hijacks the Chrome browser and changes the homepage and search engine to 'chrome-extension://gjmodidemojeffnmplcdjibdjmiaibkn/newtab.html.' The Everyday Tab asks for a wide range of privileges that allow it to further modify the settings of the user's browser. The Everyday Tab Google Chrome Extension may inject ads to any visited site or change the icons for frequently-visited websites to websites that it promotes. In addition, the Everyday Tab may read and change the user's browsing history, modify the saved bookmarks, and monitor installed themes, apps and extensions.

With the Everyday Tab installed on your computer, it will start collecting non-personally identifiable information such as referral data, IP addresses, referral data, browser and platform type. The Everyday Tab Google Chrome Extension also may log your search terms and any links that you click on. If you are uncomfortable with a Chrome Extension having so much control over your browser or if you are not sure how Everyday Tab got installed on your computer in the first place, you can remove it with a legitimate anti-malware program.
