Do you know what Cancel Tabs Closing is?
Cancel Tabs Closing is a Google Chrome extension described as a tool that can “cancel tabs closing by clicking the button.” In other words, the application should help users restore closed tabs if they change their minds. If you have second thoughts quite often the software might seem rather handy, but we are not sure if such a simple feature is worth to risk the device’s safety. Cancel Tabs Closing is considered to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP), which means it is not malicious. However, it does not say it is reliable either. If you wish to know how this extension could cause you trouble we encourage you to read the rest of the text and learn more about it. We can also assist our readers who decide to eliminate the suspicious application as we provide a removal guide just below the main text.
Moreover, the same document (EULA) states Cancel Tabs Closing could gather both personal and anonymous information that “MAY BE USED OR SHARED WITH THIRD PARTIES FOR PURPOSES OF DISPLAYING TARGETED ADVERTISEMENTS TO YOU.” Unfortunately, it would seem the software’s creators do not take any responsibility for such content either. Consequently, there might be a possibility some of the ads could be potentially dangerous, e.g., they might offer to install more PUPs or other untrustworthy programs alike. In the worst case scenario, the third-party ads could lead users to malicious websites filled with malware or created to scam users.Cancel Tabs Closing screenshot

In non-techie terms:
Cancel Tabs Closing is advertised as a useful and safe tool for Google Chrome users, but our researchers learned it is not entirely true. It looks like the application’s developers cannot guarantee the tool will be malware-free or that any content you encounter through it will be reliable. Speaking of the extension’s functionality, we do not think it can be of any use as the browser it is compatible with already has a feature allowing to restore closed tabs. Consequently, we recommend erasing this questionable application with no hesitation. Anyone who wants to delete the PUP manually can do so while following the removal guide located above. For users who prefer automatic solutions, we would recommend employing a reputable antimalware tool.
