Browser extensions with generic names like “Apps 2.3” and the ID shown on the screen (Pejhfhcoekcajgokallhmklcjkkeemgjare) are a type of software that can take control of your web browser when given consent.

These extensions can also track your online activity and collect your browsing information, which can then be used for various purposes. This browser extension may expose you to potentially harmful websites.
To remove such browser extensions from your browser, you can follow these steps:
- Open your browser settings and navigate to the “Extensions” or “Add-ons” section. Look for any suspicious or unfamiliar extensions that may have been installed accidentally, such as “Apps 2.3” or any other extensions with generic names.
- Disable or remove any suspicious extensions from your browser by clicking on the “Remove” or “Disable” button next to the extension’s name.
- Reset your browser settings to their default values to remove any unwanted changes made by the extension. This can usually be done by navigating to the “Settings” or “Options” section of your browser and clicking on the “Reset” or “Restore settings” button.
