Not all browser add-ons are there to make your Web browsing sessions more entertaining or functional. They may often make misleading promises and then make entirely different changes to your Web browser's behavior. An extension that relies on such deceptive tricks is GetVideoSearch. It may pose as a useful tool to download videos from various websites and social media networks. However, users who install it may not get access to such features at all, and, instead, GetVideoSearch will replace their default search engine with Feed.getvideosearch.com. In the meantime, the extension also may set the default new tab to Portal.getvideosearch.com.

GetVideoSearch is considered to be a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). It does not pose a threat, but it is associated with intrusive and undesired changes concerning your Web browser. It is recommended to eliminate the annoying application by using a reputable security scanner. Once GetVideoSearch is gone, your browser's settings should be back to normal.
