Instantly Converter Extension

Posted: March 23, 2018

The Instantly Converter Extension is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) by Polarity Technologies LTD. The Instantly Converter Extension is installed in the form of a browser add-on, which is meant to allow users to convert various documents from one format to another quickly. While this might sound useful, none of the Instantly Converter Extension's features are unique, and you can use the same tools thanks to free online services that do not require you to install 3rd-party software like this product.

Apart from not offering anything interesting of value, the Instantly Converter Extension also might trouble users by tampering with their browser's settings and forcing them to use a new tab page that they are not used to. The simple change that this PUP brings is to set the Chrome New Tab to Seach.hinstantlyconverter.com. While this change does not pose a threat to your safety, it is something that most people would consider to be intrusive and unwanted certainly.

If you have added the Instantly Converter Extension to your browser recently and you do not wish to continue using it, then we suggest that you take care of its removal with the assistance of suitable security software immediately.
