The SystemNotes extension is designed to target Mac users as it is compatible with the Safari Web browser. This Web browser extension is meant to provide users with various tools that are meant to boost their productivity. The SystemNotes Web browser add-on claims to offer notifications, reminders, and note-keeping modules that will help users manage their tasks better. However, the publishers of this application do not mention that the SystemNotes add-o also will alter users’ Web browser settings without their knowledge.
Needless to say, no reputable Web browser extension would attempt to meddle in your system’s configurations without asking for your permission first. The SystemNotes extension will alter the default homepage and new tab page of the user. It would appear that the SystemNotes add-on would set affiliated third-party websites as default homepage and new tab page. Users have reported that the SystemNotes extension has asked for their permission to access their browsing history, as well as their cookies. Usually, gathering such data helps applications present users with more relevant advertisements, therefore increasing the chances of the user engaging with the promotions
Cybersecurity researchers have determined that the SystemNotes Web browser extension is a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program), and it is best for users to remove it. This can be achieved either via your Web browser settings or with the assistance of a genuine anti-malware tool.
