How did the add-on enter your operating system

Freeware is used to help questionable browser extensions spread. You may have picked to install it as well since it is available on browser stores or official websites. But usually, they come as optional items that set up automatically alongside, unless you stop them. They do not even need to acquire your explicit permission to set up since when you stick to Default mode, you basically permit them to set up. You ought to opt for Advanced or Custom settings if you wish to check for attached offers. If something unwanted is attached to freeware, you can decline the installation by unchecking those items.

Keeping the extension isn’t recommended as it will be of no use to you. The add-on could try to reroute you, which is the whole reason why it exists.
