Do you know what Video Search Tools Plus is?
Video Search Tools Plus is sort of a unique program because it also doubles as a search engine. This program is a browser extension for Chrome that you should consider removing, since it is set to hijack your browser’s homepage and new tab page. We fear that the website which replaces the home and new tab pages may display modified search results that can be set to sponsor certain links. Video Search Tools Plus is not exactly a malicious program. The only problem we have with it is that it does not ask users whether they want to change to home and new tab pages to the promoted search engine. However, there is more to this extension and its promoted website that we want to share with you, so if you have this program, we invite you to learn more about it.
This browser extension has been developed by Keen Internet Technologies Ltd. This company’s website address is Keen.media. The website claims that it offers end-users high-value offers and products which implies that it is an adware developer. The website’s terms and conditions say that any claims relating to the company are subject to Israeli law, so it is most likely based in Israel. Video Search Tools Plus can be downloaded from Videosearchtoolsplus.com and From Google’s Chrome Web Store. Now, it is not the first time that potentially unwanted programs have ended up on this website, so do not treat this extension as completely safe.Video Search Tools Plus screenshot
