Everyday Tab. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Gabriel E. Hall - - | Type: Browser hijacker

Everyday Tab collects private information via surveys and contests

The example of Everyday Tab

Everyday Tab is an unreliable search engine which targets to hijack Google Chrome and set itself as the primary search provider. This potentially unwanted program spreads as Everyday Tab extension on Chrome Web Store and claims to enhance user's browsing experience by providing such features as the to-do list, weather forecast, beautiful backgrounds, etc.

However, once Everyday Tab hijack occurs, you are unable to bring your browser to the previous state. It means that every time you click on your homepage, new tab or window, you will be redirected to this fraudulent search engine and forced to use its services on a daily basis. 

Note that such actions should not be tolerated since EverydayTab generates distorted search results by infusing irrelative ads among them. They are not only annoying but also potentially dangerous to the security of your computer. If the user tends to click on them, vulnerable systems might be infected with high-risk malware.

Additionally to sponsored ads, you might notice a significant increase in surveys. However, you should stay away from them as far as possible since in the Privacy Policy developers of Everyday Tab state the following:

From time-to-time the Everyday Tab Extension request information from you that may identify you personally. It includes contact information (such as name, e-mail address, shipping address, and zip code), and demographic information (such as age, gender, occupation, and household income).

You might be tricked to provide such private details through survey scams, contests, or tell-a-friend offers. Sadly, but by using Everyday Tab you put the privacy of your friends at risk as well. Note that some games might ask to identify your pals and submit their personal information.

Therefore, we recommend you to remove Everyday Tab if you have it installed or never get it in the first place. If you continue to use these unreliable services, you might end up suffering from far more dangerous infections, such as ransomware[1], banking Trojans, etc.

For Everyday Tab removal we suggest using Reimage. It is our top pick when dealing with various potentially unwanted programs including this browser hijacker. Additionally, don't forget to check the guide below to learn how to reset Chrome settings after PUP takeover. 

Browser hijacker's distribution methods

If you want to protect your system from potentially unwanted programs, be aware that they spread together with free applications. This technique is called bundling which refers to the installation of an additional program while installing the initial one[2]

You can successfully avoid PUPs by following these steps:

  1. Do not download software from peer-to-peer networks or other unauthorized distributors;
  2. Scan the files you want to download using a professional antivirus tool;
  3. Update the security software regularly along with OS;
  4. Never choose Quick/Recommended settings;
  5. Instead, pick Advanced/Custom;
  6. Search for and un-tick pre-selected marks allowing to install the browser hijacker.

Simple Everyday Tab removal procedure

You may remove Everyday Tab both, manually and automatically. However, the latter procedure is far more convenient for regular computer users since they only need to download the security software and run an entire system scan. Afterward, their computers are hijacker-free, and they can proceed to reset the browser settings to the previous state.

While NoVirus.uk[3] team warns that manual Everyday Tab removal requires far more patience. Note that you must get rid of all the components related to the potentially unwanted program. We have attached the elimination guide to help you with the procedure. Make sure to check it below.

You can remove virus damage automatically with a help of one of these programs: Reimage, Malwarebytes MalwarebytesCombo Cleaner, Plumbytes Anti-MalwareMalwarebytes Malwarebytes. We recommend these applications because they detect potentially unwanted programs and viruses with all their files and registry entries that are related to them.
