World of Physics does not come out of the blue. Its presence on browsers is the result of the installation of a suspicious browser extension. This add-on is compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome; however, Mozilla Firefox blocks it, so users see changes applied on one of their browsers, i.e. Google Chrome only. More specifically, this search tool changes a homepage and a New Tab URL on this browser, so it does not take long for users to notice the modifications.

Actually, some people do not find these changes surprising at all because they willingly download and install the extension from its official website. Of course, not all the users are glad to see that World of Physics has occupied their browsers. In the humble opinion of our researchers, users should go to eliminate the World of Physics browser extension and the search engine it promotes no matter they have installed it willingly or not. First of all, our IT guys have immediately understood that World of Physics extension is not as beneficial as it claims to be. Unfortunately, this piece of software does not exactly do what it says, so a number of users get disappointed after its installation and, consequently, decide to eliminate it. We cannot blame those users because all this add-on does is set a new website World of Physics, which looks like a legitimate search provider, as a homepage and New Tab.

Generally speaking, this extension is, basically, useless because all pages could be opened without its help too. Also, many users find the presence of a new search tool World of Physics set on their browsers quite irritating. To make it gone, delete World of Physics extension. Actually, users should erase this search tool not only because they find it annoying, but also to protect their systems from dangers the use of World of Physics might pose.

Our team of researchers has opened and read the Privacy Policy for users to find out how this World of Physics extension treats the users’ privacy too. It has been immediately found that two types of information are collected when World of Physics is used as a default search engine. First, it is interested in data contained in log files, for instance, IP address, the type of browser, pages visited through BWorld of Physics, and similar details that cannot identify users personally. The second type of information it records is the personal one. Of course, only details provided by users, e.g. entered in the search box of World of Physics will be recorded, but it does not mean that users should let this search tool stay and continue performing this activity on their PCs.
