The My Local Transit extension is a product of Polarity Technologies LTD, which is meant to provide users with the ability to find out the schedule and most recent news of their local public transport systems such as the bus, train or metro quickly. While this may sound useful, your town or city should have this information public, and there are also plenty of 3rd-party websites that can provide you with the same data without asking you to install a dubious browser add-on.
The installation of My Local Transit may also be accompanied by unexpected and annoying changes to your browser’s configuration. Users who’ve encountered the add-on report that they had either their new tab page or default Search engine replaced by Search.hmylocaltransit.co. This page appears to host a simple search field, which also contains quick links to popular social media pages and online stores. In addition to this, the Search.hmylocaltransit.co contains a toolbar, which allows the user to browse rental car services, bus routes, and various other transit systems.
Having My Local Transit installed and using the pages it promotes is not harmful. However, rest assured that it is recommended to use trustworthy websites and search engines that have proven their credibility, instead of a dubious one that attracts visitors by using a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) to tamper with the browser’s configuration. If you want to remove My Local Transit, you can do it either manually or by using an up-to-date PC security scanner.
