The MovieFlex software is stated to come from Movieflex.club as seen on the Chrome Web Store — Chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/movieflex/kljfjpjelhecbecghbodjngljgedfbpf. You may be lead to believe that MovieFlex delivers one-click access to the latest movie reviews, film trailers and entertainment news. However, Movieflex.club is not registered on the Internet, and the MovieFlex is an ad-supported browser extension, which may display unwanted advertisements on your screen. The MovieFlex Chrome extension asks for a wide range of rights in Chrome before it is installed. We have seen the app require access to the user's downloads, Internet history, themes, We apps and new tab settings.
MovieFlex is classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) by Movieflex.club that might generate notifications in the browser and urge users to browse discounts, limited-time deals and premium offers. Tests showed that MovieFlex might make modifications to how Google Chrome handles new tab pages. The app may substitute the default new tab in Chrome and present PC users with an offline page. The MovieFlex new Tab can be recognized by users by looking at the Omnibox. The MovieFlex New tab is listed in the Omnibox as 'MovieFlex|chrome-extension://kljfjpjelhecbecghbodjngljgedfbpf/newtab/index.html' and has a search bar at its center. Links to Facebook, IMDB, and RottenTomatoes can be found in the top section of the MovieFlex New Tab page. You should know that the search bar on the MovieFlex new Tab is powered by Searchitdown.com.
