Do you know what Pdfconverter.pro is?
Pdfconverter.pro is a website users find set on their Google Chrome browsers after they install the browser extension promoting it. It is available at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mediatab-tv-pdfconverter/pgcbamhcnohldmlkbngdagaaabkakfgd, but we do not think that all users install it on their computers consciously. Some of them find it installed on their computers without their knowledge, so it is not surprising why so many users find all these changes applied to their browsers undesirable. Research conducted by our experienced team of malware researchers showed that the majority of users who visit Pdfconverter.pro live in the United States, Indonesia, and India, so it is very likely that the browser extension promoting this website is spread the most actively in these countries. Of course, users can encounter it no matter where they live. Have you already found your browsers’ settings altered too? If so, we suggest that you remove the browser extension (MediaTab TV – PdfConverter) from your browser right away. This is the only way to make the page set on it gone. It should be also emphasized that the piece of software promoting Pdfconverter.pro is known to be a potentially unwanted program, meaning that it is not trustworthy.
Media Tab TV – PdfConverter is presented as a tool for converting documents. Also, it promises to enhance the browsing and searching experience. To be more specific, it should change a background image of Pdfconverter.pro every 6 hours. Even though it is advertised as useful software, we have some doubts about this because setting a new page as a homepage and New Tab on Google Chrome is all it does. The page shows date and time, contains a search box in the middle, and has three quick-access buttons that open a third-party file conversion service. Without a doubt, you do not need to have this extension installed to be able to access this service. As for the search provider it promotes, we cannot promise that it will display only trustworthy search results to users. Specialists say that potentially unwanted programs often promote search engines that show sponsored search results too, so you should be very cautious. To tell you the truth, it might be impossible to recognize all of them, so the chances are high that you will click on them eventually. In some cases, these sponsored search results promote dubious websites, so it would be best not to click on any of them. You will be 100% sure that you cannot click on any of these sponsored links only if you stop using the search tool Pdfconverter.pro contains.Pdfconverter.pro screenshot
