Home Malware Programs Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) FindConverterSearch


Posted: November 23, 2020

FindConverterSearch is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that tries to trick users into thinking that it is a useful Web browser extension. Users may believe that FindConverterSearch is meant to grant them access to neat file conversion tools and utilities, which work for documents, video and audio. However, instead of doing this, FindConverterSearch's installation will simply replace the Web browser's default new tab page with Portal.findconvertersearch.com and the search aggregator with Feed.findconvertersearch.com.

PUPs like FindConverterSearch are not harmful, but their changes may sometimes be annoying because they force you to use websites you are not familiar with. If your browser redirects you to unexpected pages when you try to load a new tab, then it is likely that the change is caused by a PUP or a browser hijacker. To identify and remove software of this sort, you need to use a suitable security product to scan your computer.
