Do you know what SoLucky is?
SoLucky is a questionable extension that appears to be compatible only with Google Chrome. Have you installed it on a different browser? If you have, you should consider deleting it as well. That is recommended because this seemingly useful extension can record information about your activity using silent cookies and then share data with unknown third parties. Unfortunately, that is something to be cautious about because many hijackers, adware, and PUPs can leak private information to malicious parties. If you want to know if this strange extension can do the same, you need to continue reading this report. And if you cannot wait to remove SoLucky from your Google Chrome browser, you will be happy to find the instructions below.
Is SoLucky a dangerous threat? Our research team does not classify this extension as one. At worst, it is a potentially unwanted program that does not offer services as beneficial as you might have thought it would. The official page representing this suspicious extension is http://solucky.co, but the installer is found at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/solucky/hjoklbpknpobbafbckcopemdnlgiclbk. This Chrome web store installer represents the extension as the best tool for navigating the web faster. It is stated that the add-on can provide you with the best search results without introducing you to ads first. In fact, three results are supposed to show up in a box on the right before you even hit Enter to start the search. It is also suggested that the add-on uses the Google Search engine to showcase search results, and, of course, this search engine is popular and trusted. On the other hand, if you enjoy this engine, do you really need an extension to help you access it? This might be one reason to delete the add-on.
