AntiGravity Tab Removal Guide

Do you know what AntiGravity Tab is?

AntiGravity Tab is an extension that promises to bring “animated background and the weather forecast” to users in order to enhance their browsing and web searching experience. Users who install this add-on from its official website (https://antigravityflowtab.com/) or the Chrome Web store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/antigravity-flow-tab-new/kmandlokobcbfodoiiohmnikamjifgbj) willingly usually find this piece of software quite beneficial; however, we cannot say the same about those users who find AntiGravity Tab installed against their will. They usually find changes it applies to their Google Chrome browsers undesirable. In fact, it has been classified as a potentially unwanted program because of these modifications it makes. Of course, there are other reasons too. Luckily, all the changes it has applied can be quite easily undone by removing it from the affected browser.

Although AntiGravity Tab is advertised as a beneficial piece of software developed to enhance users’ browsing and web searching experience, it is not an extension we would recommend adding to browsers. Yes, it sets an attractive page as a new homepage and New Tab which contains a search box, quick-access buttons opening Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon, and other popular pages, and, finally, a bar with the local weather forecast at the bottom of the page. Some users consider this a useful feature of AntiGravity Tab, whereas others want to bring their preferred settings back. Since it does not inform users about the changes it is going to apply in advance, a label “potentially unwanted program” has been stuck on it by experienced specialists. It is, of course, not the only reason this piece of software has been categorized as a potentially unwanted program. According to our researchers, it might also collect information about users too. Even though its Privacy Policy document is not available, such browser extensions always gather data about users. In most cases, they limit themselves to non-personally identifiable information (e.g. search queries, links clicked, websites visited, and technical details about the computer used), but, in some cases, they might also record personally-identifiable information, for example, when users enter personal details in the search box. Last but not least, AntiGravity Tab should be eliminated from browsers also because it might display annoying ads. They will not be opened on your screen as pop-ups or other common types of commercial advertisements. Instead, you will see them if you use the search box located on the page set by this browser extension to perform web searches. These ads might redirect users to untrustworthy pages – that is why it might be dangerous to use this search tool.

Researchers cannot say anything positive about the distribution of AntiGravity Tab either. Although this Google Chrome browser extension can be downloaded by users from its official website or the Chrome Web store, it has been found that it might also arrive on users’ computers in software bundles too. It is a distribution strategy adopted by untrustworthy applications to show up on users’ PCs without permission, so AntiGravity Tab cannot be called trustworthy by any means too. There is a bunch of sneaky threats out there which use the deceptive distribution method called bundling to get onto systems, so if you do not do anything to ensure your system’s maximum protection, you will sooner or later discover a new undesirable application on your system.

AntiGravity Tab is not a piece of software we could call fully reliable, so we suggest getting rid of it as soon as possible. Since it is only compatible with Google Chrome, its removal should not be very time-consuming. Of course, it would be quicker to erase it from this browser with an automatic malware remover. It would not leave undesirable software which could have entered your computer together with this extension active on the system either.

In non-techie terms:

Potentially unwanted programs are actively developed and distributed these days, so users should not leave their computers unprotected. What they can do to prevent untrustworthy software from slithering onto their computers is to install an automatic security tool. On top of that, it is highly recommended not to download software from suspicious file-sharing pages because they usually contain and promote undesirable software.
