Do you know what Mysupertab.com is?
You might have set Mysupertab.com as your New Tab page and default search provider on Google Chrome by accident. This could have happened if you executed a software bundle introduced via a suspicious website. If you got what you wanted initially – for example, a file converter or a streaming tool – you might choose to ignore the search tool and the extension (My Super Tab) that represents it. That is not a good idea. What you should do instead is install a legitimate malware scanner and use it to inspect your operating system. Hopefully, nothing else besides the PUP is found, and you can figure out what you want to do about it. If you are not sure why we classify the extension as a PUP (potentially unwanted program), continue reading. You will also find a guide that explains why and how to delete Mysupertab.com.
Since My Super Tab is a Google Chrome extension, it is no wonder that it is represented at the Chrome web store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mysupertabcom/lcflelakhnphegeofidpfnacmpmcmhgj). The description found next to the installer indicates that Mysupertab.com can change the browser’s background image and also show shortcuts to the “most-visited” websites. This might sound like a great addition to the browser, but essentially, the extension is just a glorified bookmarker. If you want to have easy-access to all of your favorite websites, all you have to do is visit these websites one by one and hit Ctrl+D keys on the keyboard to bookmark them. Also hit Ctrl+Shift+B keys to show the bookmarks bar. Wouldn’t you lose a beneficial search tool if you removed Mysupertab.com, which the PUP set as the default search provider? Not really, because it redirects all searches to Google Search, and if you want to, you can set google.com/search as your default provider separately from the PUP.Mysupertab.com screenshot

50m.media ltd is introduced as the developer of Mysupertab.com and My Super Tab. If you install the extension and the search tool, the company gets the permission to record your browsing history, change the New Tab page and search settings, manage other apps and extensions, discover your geo-location, and also display notifications. That is a lot for a tool that is meant to offer access to your favorite websites. That is why it is classified as a potentially unwanted program. So, even if you do not mind being redirected to Google Search via search.mysupertab.com/pse/search?&query, you need to think if you are comfortable with a PUP tracking your every move online.
