Best Youtube Downloader
Best Youtube Downloader is a potentially unwanted program that you most probably installed on your computer willingly. This application can help you download the videos you have seen in YouTube, but there is a catch to it. Best Youtube Downloader can collect the information on what websites you visit in order to display customized commercial advertisements. Unless you remove Best Youtube Downloader from your computer, it is very likely that you will get infected with potential threats sooner, rather than later. Scroll down to the bottom of this article for the manual removal instructions.
If Best Youtube Downloader isn’t a malicious infection, why am I supposed to remove it? This is a legitimate question any user might ask. The problem is that this application is highly vulnerable and could be exploited by cyber criminals. It is true that Best Youtube Downloader doesn’t do anything malicious on its own, but it is a freeware and it needs to support third-party ads in order to survive (to cover its development and distribution costs, and so on). Therefore, once Best Youtube Downloader gets installed on your computer, the extension that gets added to your default browser may also start collecting data on what you search queries you enter into the search engine, what websites you visit, etc.
It is true that quite a lot of popular and legitimate programs (and websites!) make use of tracking cookies to customize the promotional material according to your likes and preferences. However, as far as Best Youtube Downloader is concerned, this application does NOT check what kind of content gets embedded into the ads it displays. As a result, some of the ads could be embedded with outgoing links that redirect users to malicious websites. Thus, it is only a matter of time before you get infected with malware.
You should think twice before you click the download link at bestyoutubedownloader.com. It might be possible to come across the Best Youtube Downloader’s homepage if you search for a YouTube video downloader, but the abundance of unfamiliar (and fake!) download buttons on the site should stop you. Not to mention, that it is also possible that this application gets distribution bundled with freeware. This means that you need you be careful whenever you download programs from third-party websites, because the installer might contain more than just the application you want.
Luckily, it is rather easy to delete Best Youtube Downloader manually. All you have to do is uninstall the application via Control Panel, and then remove the extension from your browser. However, you need to check for other unfamiliar programs too, so if you want to keep your computer safe, scan it with the SpyHunter free scanner right now.
