I Need Directions Now

Posted: June 5, 2018

The I Need Directions Now is a Chrome add-on offered by Polarity Technologies LTD. The I Need Directions Now is meant to provide users with convenient access to online maps, which can give them access to other interesting features such as the ability to generate driving instructions or review city maps and bus routes. However, while this add-on might be useful in certain situations, it also might end up annoying its users by forcing them to use a new tab page that they might not be fond of.

All users who opt to install the I Need Directions Now will see a prompt to authorize the add-on to replace their browser's new tab page with Search.hineeddirectionsnow.com, a harmless and working website, which delivers results via the Yahoo Search. In addition to the search field, Search.hineeddirectionsnow.com also displays several links to online map services such as Google Maps and Yahoo Maps – all of these are accessible without the use of 3rd-party software, which means that the I Need Directions Now is useless.

If you do not wish to use the new tab that the I Need Directions Now promotes, then we suggest that you take the necessary steps to uninstall this Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). You could carry out this task manually, but you also can take care of it with an up-to-date PC security utility.
