Do you know what Search.funtabsafesearch.com is?
Search.funtabsafesearch.com is the search engine promoted by the extension called FunTabSafe. It does not seem to be dangerous at all at first glance, and it promises to help users to protect their computers from malicious software and other dangers. Also, the developer of the extension uses the Windows logo on the official website funtabsafe.com to convince users that it is a safe piece of software. Of course, not all the users download the FunTabSafe extension from its official website. In some cases, it sneaks onto computers with the help of other applications as well. Either way, it is advisable to remove the extension promoting Search.funtabsafesearch.com because this search engine is known to be an untrustworthy one. To be honest, it might even cause harm to your computer if you keep it and use it for a long time. Users who do not want this to happen have to hurry to remove the untrustworthy search engine and then set another search provider, e.g. google.com instead.
Even though the FunTabSafe extension claims that it will “add the security tools needed,” the truth is that this extension will change the settings of your Google Chrome browser only. All you are going to notice is the presence of Search.funtabsafesearch.com. It will change your homepage, search engine, and even the New Tab page. You will find buttons leading to different tools and applications that should help you to ensure the stability of the system at the top of the main page of the search engine; however, researchers are sure that not all the tools Search.funtabsafesearch.com promotes are trustworthy and safe to use. What is more, it has been found that this search engine might also return unreliable search results. To be honest, it is very likely that the FunTabSafe extension has been developed to promote Search.funtabsafesearch.com, whereas Search.funtabsafesearch.com itself is used to promote other third-party websites. There is a possibility that Search.funtabsafesearch.com promotes websites administered by cyber criminals as well, which means that you might even cause harm to your computer by keeping the search engine promoted by the FunTabSafe extension as your default search tool.Search.funtabsafesearch.com screenshot
