Tube Dimmer

Quite a few security researchers agree that Tube Dimmer is a program your computer could do without. It is an adware application that obviously displays an entire galore of commercial advertisements. There are actually more ways to download Tube Dimmer than to remove it. It may come from its official website or bundled with a variety of adware and freeware. Despite the fact that Tube Dimmer is not an extremely dangerous computer application, it is not recommended to keep it in your system, because it could be related to a number of potential security risks.

Computer users have been complaining that Tube Dimmer come with such third party applications as Visual Bee (a browser add-on from Conduit group), SafeMonitor adware and even Websteroids potentially unwanted program. Quite a few adware removal applications do not detect Tube Dimmer, because the application is not malicious. It even has its own official webpage at tubedimmerapp.com where you can find additional information on the product.

On the surface it does seem as though there is nothing wrong with Tube Dimmer. According to its official website, there are over 75,000 users who trust and use Tube Dimmer supposedly to improve their online video watching experience. After all, the main function of the application is to dim the background of a website while you are watching a video online. The function is slightly confusing, however, as you can easily enter the full screen mode on basically any online video player, and there is no need to dim the background anymore.

What is more, Tube Dimmer claims to work solely on your computer, and do not collect additional data on its servers online. However, it is compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers, AND it does tend to arrive bundled with freeware. Hence, it is possible to infer that the application is not as safe as it claims.
