Do you know what BubblePDF is?
BubblePDF is a potentially unwanted application. It sounds like a nice and cute tool, but it could also enter your system unexpectedly. Therefore, you have to ask yourself whether you wanted this application or not. If you didn’t intend to add the app to your browser, you might as well remove it. If you want to find out if you have more unwanted applications installed, you should scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner. It is very likely that you have several other unwanted applications on-board because these apps tend to travel in groups.
Now, there are several reasons we cannot classify BubblePDF as a malicious infection. First, it is available out in the open, and second, it is a genuine browser extension. It’s only some aspects of his functionality, and the way it is distributed that are slightly fishy. Unlike malware, however, you don’t need to struggle to remove BubblePDF from your computer. The manual removal is quite easy, and you can deal with this application on your own. Hence, if the app is there, but you don’t remember installing it, the chances are that you added it to your browser accidentally when you browsed some website.
So, there are either official or unofficial ways to get BubblePDF. The official website for this extension can be accessed via bubblePDF.com, and there, you can read more on the application. It says that BubblePDF “converts to and from PDF for multiple file formats.” It “includes new tab search and shortcuts to popular sites,” and it’s also “fast and easy to use.” So, if you need a tool for file conversion, this might seem like a pretty good deal.BubblePDF screenshot

You can also find the application on the Chrome Web Store. The page over there also comes with the basic description of the application, and it even has the removal instructions that you can employ step by step. So, it doesn’t look like BubblePDF wants to infect you behind your back or anything like that. If you add this extension accidentally, that’s because you haven’t been looking when you visited some website that promotes freeware. You probably encounter multiple pop-ups when you browse the web, and some of them could be part of a freeware distribution network, so you need to be careful about where you click on.
What’s more, when you agree to add BubblePDF to your browser, you also give this app your permission to:
Set your new tab page search to BubblePDF
Read your browsing history
Read and change your data on sites: https://bubblepdf.com/
It might also look that BubblePDF can provide you with a reliable search engine, what with your new tab settings getting modified. However, our research shows that even if you use the search page provided by this app, all of your queries eventually get redirected to a Yahoo! Search page. Therefore, it means that BubblePDF employs another search engine to provide you with the results, instead of having its own original search engine.
Of course, there is nothing illegal about that, but we can raise a question whether we really need this application to redirect us to a search engine, when we can set one as our default search provider ourselves? Also, who can guarantee that the content BubblePDF promotes is safe? Although the extension’s functions and ability to convert file formats may be useful, we cannot overlook the fact that it could be exploited by malevolent third parties to expose you to potentially harmful content. Not to mention that it collects data on your browsing history, and so it could generate custom commercial content without you even realizing it.
We believe it is on your best interest to remove BubblePDF from your computer today. As you already know, you can follow the manual removal guidelines provided by the app’s developers at the Chrome Web Store. Or you can restore your browser to default by using our instructions below. Don’t forget to invest in a powerful security tool to protect your system from various intruders. You have to keep your security software up-to-date, and be sure to always check the legitimacy of the site you enter because a dangerous infection could be just a click away.

In non-techie terms:
