Our research team classifies it as a potentially unwanted program (shortly, “PUP”) because it can showcase advertisements, as well record information about you. If you want to delete Yoga New Tab as soon as possible, you can find the removal guide below. However, we recommend reading this report, especially if the add-on came bundled with other suspicious programs. Note that a comments section is presented below.

Have you downloaded Yoga New Tab because it allows you to customize your New Tab page? The only official information regarding the extension can be found on the Chrome web store page representing the installer. According to the information, you can adjust your search settings, as well as add or remove different widgets (time, date, weather, to do list, history, etc.). Of course, the most prominent feature of this extension is the wallpapers representing different yoga poses, and that is what makes Yoga New Tab unique. In general, the information represented via the Chrome web store is not misleading, and you get what you expect. However, you are not introduced to privacy policies or other important statements, which makes the extension quite suspicious and unpredictable. Needless to say, if you do not feel like you can trust a program, you should delete it without any hesitation.
Yoga New Tab represents www.mystart.com/new-tab/olgyoga/. When you install the add-on, this is the page that you will see set as your New Tab page. As promised, it showcases various widgets that you can add or remove using the menu on the right. The menu also allows you to choose which search tool you want to use (the only options are Google Search or Yahoo Search). Unfortunately, you should not browse the web using the search tool introduced to you via the suspicious page. This is because sponsored content and ads are likely to be added to the normal search results. Since it is not known which parties can be showcasing their offers, there is a possibility that the content shown to you could be misleading and unreliable. In case you have interacted with sponsored content already, think if you might have shared private information, installed suspicious software, and jeopardized your virtual security.
