Home Malware Programs Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) FunSocialTab


Posted: April 13, 2018

FunSocialTab is a browser extension, which offers to make it easier for the users to navigate through their social media profiles and the social networks they use. While this is somewhat true, it is important to mention that FunSocialTab does this by applying questionable changes to the browser's configuration and replacing the default new tab page with Funsocialtabsearch.com. While the change in question is not harmful, the search feature offered by FunSocialTab's website is not as credible and reliable as search aggregators like Bing, Yahoo, Google or DuckDuckGo.

Although the FunSocialTab's services might sound useful, it does nothing more than adding another set of bookmarks in your new tab page. The same result can be fulfilled by using your browser's bookmarks bar to create a folder with links to the social networks you use, therefore fully eliminating the need for add-ons like FunSocialTab. Another issue you might want to avoid by using FunSocialTab is that it has been tagged as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP).

If you wish to remove FunSocialTab from your Web browser and restore your previous configuration, then we advise you to complete the task with the assistance of a suitable cyber security application, which can guarantee the full removal of the FunSocialTab's files.
