KeyDownload

KeyDownload is the newest product that can be classified as an advertising-supported application. Even though the publishers state in the official webpage that they are aimed at providing users with “fun, efficient, and user friendly experiences”, we do not recommend trusting this program 100% for several reasons that will be presented in this article. If you ever decide to get rid of KeyDownload, as you are not satisfied with it, you should know that you will have to remove the extensions that it adds to all the most popular browsers. It is the main solution if you want to stop all its annoying activities that it is going to perform after the installation onto your PC.

The advertisements that KeyDownload displays should not be considered as useful or reliable because they cannot be described as such. First of all, you might be taken to some unreliable websites after clicking on any of those advertisements and thus infect your system with different kinds of threats. Secondly, it is known that KeyDownload is capable of collecting some of the information related to your browsing habits. It uses cookies and other tracking technologies for this matter. However, some computer users believe that it is rather suspicious and they feel like KeyDownload is spying on them. You should know that the data gathered by KeyDownload is non-personally identifiable; however, they still might find out much about you. The only way to stop this is to remove KeyDownload from your system.

Our specialists have found out that KeyDownload is probably distributed bundled with other programs because the download on its official website keydownload.com is not working at the time of writing. You should always download programs from reliable websites because if you download software from any random web pages, the possibility to infect your computer with malicious software as well as end up with unfamiliar programs is extremely high. What is more, custom installation might also help you to avoid bundled software.

Have you decided to get rid of KeyDownload? Congratulations! We will help you to do that by providing the manual removal instructions. You should scroll down and you will find them below. Manual removal should not be difficult for ordinary computer users; however, if you are a less experienced one, you should better scan your system with a reliable antimalware tool like SpyHunter. Complete the scan and remove all the infections by clicking the “Fix Threats” button.
