If the newtabtv.com page has been set as a homepage and a New Tab URL on your Google Chrome browser, it means that a browser extension newtabtv.com has been added to the list of add-ons. Since not much information about this browser extension is available on its official website, users do not immediately understand that the presence of newtabtv.com is a result of the installation of this extension. Of course, not all the people willingly install this extension from its official website. Some of them get it from a file-sharing or a similar dubious third-party website together with free software, so it is not at all surprising that there are people who cannot explain why newtabtv.com is loaded when they open their browsers. If you are one of those users who know nothing about the installation of the newtabtv.com extension, go to remove it today. It is the only way to remove the undesirable search tool from browsers too.

Even though many users find newtabtv.com beneficial and harmless, security specialists still recommend being careful with it. It is because you might be provided with sponsored links leading to questionable websites if you keep using newtabtv.com as a default search provider. Actually, the extension itself is not perfect too. It is clearly stated in its Privacy Policy document that it is going to record two types of information about users: both personal and non-personally identifiable information “contained in log files.” Such non-personally identifiable details as IP address, type of browser, the time the service is used, etc. are often recorded by other browser extensions too; however, decent software respects the privacy of users and do not record their personal information by any means. Our team of researchers do not think that newtabtv.com can be fully trusted, but, of course, you are the one who is in charge here and can decide what to do with it.

In the opinion of our team of experienced specialists, newtabtv.com extension cannot be called fully reliable also because it is capable of entering computers together with freeware. In other words, it does not need to get permission to enter the computer. Of course, we cannot say that it is installed silently because users are the ones who allow it to enter their PCs by installing a software bundle or clicking on malicious pop-up advertisements they come across on file-sharing and similar third-party websites. Of course, they can get it from its official website too, but we suspect that a number of users are reading this article because they have not installed this browser extension and set newtabtv.com willingly.
