Undeletable Extension "Bright VPN"


Recommended Posts

Installed MX7 on fresh system (win11), I believe Bright VPN  came with MX as extension. Right after installation I removed this extension (never accepted any permission). But after every re-open of MX7 it is coming again, asking for permissions.
Also it is sitting windows taskbar settings (I uninstalled it from windows, but anyway).
What is it? MX7 coming with virus?

Hi rambo, BrightVPN is actually an app. Does it still prompt even after you uninstall from windows?

yes. 80% when I start maxthon.

Screens are after uninstall.

in my browser it says "extension". 

and when I click "remove from chrome" - it is removed, but only before I close maxthon and reopen it.

then I have "remove from chrome" again

Hi rambo, do you see the attached message after uninstalling BrightVPN? And right after you see this message prompting, you could right click on the extension and select 'Remove from Maxthon'. FYI, to uninstall please go to Apps & features in windows > BrightVPN > Uninstall. Just to confirm, are you using the latest version V7.0.0.1100?

I uninstalled it from windows, from mx, from my thoughts too - didn't help :)

finally I uninstalled maxthon.. and reinstalled it.. problem solved!
