How to remove Directions Tab

Sharing is caring!

What is Directionstab.com

Directionstab.com is presented as a useful add-on that “gets quick links to top online map providers and access custom web search from your new tab”. However, that’s just a trick to attract users. In reality, the main goal of this application is to deliver to you commercial content as much as possible. For this reason, it will display pop-ups that will overlay content you view and also will cause redirects to ad sites. Another unpleasant feature is that it continuously collects personal data about your browsing activity and then transfer it to third-party sites. Therefore, we recommend you to remove Directionstab.com from your device right away.
