Do you know what Eco Search is?
Eco Search might sound like a tool for people who are interested in eco-friendly products, but our computer security specialists say that it is just another potentially unwanted program that might show modified search results. In some cases, such tools gather information about users’ browsing to learn about their interests and inject their search results with tailored advertisements. We do not say that this search tool necessarily works this way, but there is a possibility it could. Thus, if you came across it, we recommend reading our full report to learn more about it. Also, we can offer the removal guide available below this article that shows how to erase Eco Search manually. Should you need more help or have any questions about this potentially unwanted program, do not hesitate to leave us a comment at the end of this page.
At the moment, Eco Search can be found on Chrome Web Store, a platform offering extensions for Google Chrome users. It is unlikely that it could be found on similar platforms belonging to other browsers, as it seems this add-on is only compatible with Google Chrome. Also, our researchers say that like similar potentially unwanted programs, it could be distributed with redirects. It means that users could get redirected to websites offering it after interacting with file-sharing sites or advertisements. Naturally, to avoid being redirected to offers of potentially unwanted programs or software alike, we advise keeping away from questionable pop-ups and file-sharing sites. Also, you might get warned about suspicious proposals if you keep your browser up to date as well as get a reputable antimalware tool.
