Do you know what Your Mini Truetest Extension is?
Your Mini Truetest Extension, also known as Your mini Truetest, is a piece of software compatible with Google Chrome. Users can willingly download it from the Chrome Web store (at the time of writing, there are 2 874 users who have already done that); however, our experienced team of researchers still suspect that it arrives on computers without getting direct permission from users in most cases. It seems that it often comes bundled with third-party software. It is one of the main reasons Your Mini Truetest Extension has been classified a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. We would lie if we said that it is the only negative trait it has. Since Your Mini Truetest Extension is not a browser extension that users could trust fully, specialists recommend getting rid of it as soon as possible no matter you have downloaded it voluntarily from the web and found it quite useful or you know nothing about its entrance. Potentially unwanted applications differ from serious malware in a sense that they can be removed easily. Since Your Mini Truetest Extension is a PUP too, its removal should not be very problematic.
If you are reading this article from its beginning, you should know that specialists cannot confirm that Your Mini Truetest Extension can be fully trusted and suggest erasing it ASAP. Of course, they say so not without reason. Our experienced specialists have recently conducted research which has revealed that this Google Chrome extension has several serious drawbacks even though it is promoted in the Chrome Web store as really beneficial software that will make it possible to open the so-called mini versions of websites. The extension’s description says that users could do this by clicking on the icon at the top of the browser. It is natural that users believe that they could open mini versions of all websites of their choice if they click the Add to Chrome button and thus install this extension, but it is not exactly true. Research has shown that this button only opens Russian pages with banners – they open third-party pages. Nothing is known about these promoted websites, so, theoretically, you might even land on a corrupted page if you keep clicking on those advertisements you see after you click on the extension’s button. Also, you will definitely not be allowed to open these mini versions of pages you like. Because of this, we see no point in keeping this extension active. According to malware researchers, if you do not disable it soon, it might cause problems linked to online privacy as well because it is capable of stealing information associated with the web searching.
