No matter where users get it from, they will notice the same changes applied on their Google Chrome browsers. Search By myMovie adds a new extension with the unique ID gocbflmhgdckldejmklihkedljphnobo (open the list of extension if you do not believe us), and then changes the default search engine. Since users usually install this piece of software because it promises to make it easier to find movies online (it claims that users could search movies by typing one word movies: and the title of the movie in the URL bar), they do not expect that it will remove their preferred search in exchange for the useful service. There is no information about this on their official sources too. Users are only told that they agree with all the changes by clicking the “ADD TO CHROME” button in the top right hand corner and installing the myMovie Search extension.” Search By myMovie is quite popular judging from the number of users who have already downloaded it from the Chrome Web store, so there is a possibility that some users have found it useful despite the fact that it changes their browsers’ settings without permission.

Our experienced specialists suggest doing that too as soon as possible because the search engine set in the place of your old search provider is not fully reliable. Frankly speaking, it might even expose you to potential dangers. Read the next paragraph to find out what is wrong with it.
The Search By myMovie users find set on their Google Chrome browsers looks quite reputable, so users use it as a default search provider fearlessly. Sadly, the truth is that it is not as trustworthy as it might seem at first glance, so replacing it with a good search tool is highly recommended. Before you do that, you need to erase Search By myMovie first. Our researchers cannot call this search tool fully trustworthy because all the searches performed using it are redirected to a dubious search engine movix.searchalgo.com and only then Yahoo! search results are displayed. Because of this initial redirection to a suspicious search tool, users might see the so-called modified search results whose main purpose is to drive the traffic to third-party websites. This does not sound dangerous at all, but users might really be exposed to potential threats because they might end up on untrustworthy pages too after clicking on any of these modified search results they see.Search By myMovie screenshot
