Updated: Aug 8, 2020


Has your search engine changed? - Has your home page changed? - Do you get strange search results? Annoyed by increased pop-ups? Do you have an unwanted toolbar in your web browser?


Browser extensions can be much more dangerous than most people realise. These small tools often have access to everything you do online, they can capture your passwords, track your web browsing, insert advertisements into web pages you visit, and more. Popular browser extensions are often sold to shady companies or hijacked, and automatic updates can turn them into malware.
