All in One Office - Web Search Extension
The All in One Office - Web Search Extension from h[tt]ps://allinoneoffice[.]net is presented to Web surfers as a productivity application that helps you create documents, notes and keep track of important events via a calendar. The All in One Office - Web Search Extension is published by Axel Division LP (h[tt]p://axeldivision[.]com) that is an advertising company. You may find two versions of the All in One Office on the Chrome Web Store. One of them changes your search settings to h[tt]p://search.allinoneoffice[.]net and the other one collects Internet statistics while you are online. Both versions are published on:
- All in One Office - Web Search Extension — Chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/all-in-one-office-web-sea/doknpakcpjkbnincdeoocojhnhndmhek
- All-in-One Office - New Tab — Chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/all-in-one-office-new-tab/dgldcllfgcheelimlbmilnkilnamlhbd
Both applications require the following privileges on Chrome:
- Read and change all your data on the websites you visit.
- Replace the page you see when opening a new tab.
- Manage your apps, extensions and themes.
- Read and change your bookmarks.
- Read and change your browsing history.
- Change your search settings to search.allinoneoffice.net
The All in One Office extension package offers users access to what looks to be a search engine on Search.allinoneoffice.net. In reality, the All in One Office redirects users to the legitimate version of Google.com. The app collects information like your software configuration, browsing history, recent downloads, bookmarks and installed extensions. The data helps the Axel Division LP to produce tailor-suited advertisements in your Internet browser. The All in One Office - Web Search Extension and the All-in-One Office - New Tab are deemed as Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), which perform browser redirects and change the user's primary search engine to Search.allinoneoffice.net. Using the Omnibox in Chrome may be accompanied by sponsored search results that feature the tag 'Simple Search Extension Search.'
