There are numerous browser extensions, which serve shady purposes and mislead users into thinking they are installing a high-quality extension tool. One of them is the InformationVine browser extension. The goal of the InformationVine extension is to generate traffic for their own website – informationvine.com. The InformationVine add-on does this by setting up the informationvine.com Web page as the default homepage of the user, as well as the new tab.
Low-Quality Search Results
The installation of the InformationVine extension also may mess with the browser's search engine settings - it is possible that any searches initiated through the address bar may end up on the results page of informationvine.com. The search engine promoted by the InformationVine add-on is functioning, but it appears that the top results are sponsored and thus may not be relevant results to the search inquiry. Also, some of the results delivered may be of low-quality websites.
If you have happened to install the InformationVine extension and you do not wish to have the informationvine.com website as your default home and tab pages you should look into the settings of your Web browser and locate the InformationVine add-on and remove it manually. If you are not sure how to do this manually, you can always rely on cybersecurity application to remove the InformationVine extension from your browser safely.
