SwiftMediaConverter is an ad-supported program that might put your system’s security at risk if you keep it on your computer. This adware poses as a useful application that can convert audio files in an easy, fast, and fun way. Unfortunately, our researchers have found that certain instances of the program do not even function. What this adware is really good at, of course, is displaying annoying third-party ads all over your screen. This can seriously distract you from your normal web surfing experience, but this is not your biggest worry if you are infected with SwiftMediaConverter. Third-party advertisements might redirect you to infected websites, which might cause you a number of issues. However, this adware is most likely to travel with other infections that can multiply your security issues in no time. Therefore, we recommend that you should remove SwiftMediaConverter right now if you want to avoid any possible threats to your system’s security.
SwiftMediaConverter has a legitimate-looking official website, but you cannot actually download the free version from there, no matter hard you press the download button. This already should make you wonder about the reliability of the application. The bad news is that if you find this adware on your system as a surprise, it has most likely come in a freeware bundle. Free software packages might contain malware infections along with legitimate freeware. Installers tend to use misleading tactics to lure you into installing unwanted programs and tools. If you are not careful during each step of the installation, you might get more than you have bargained for, including multiple security issues that can even affect your privacy. As you can see, it may not be enough to delete only SwiftMediaConverter from your system, you will also need to detect and clean all other possible threats too.
SwiftMediaConverter is an audio file converter that supports all major file types, including Mp3, FLV, MP4, MPG, WAV, AVI, OGG, M4A, and 3GP. But it could not be free if it did not generate income via third-party ads. Therefore, the main aspect of this application is getting your attention to click on the ads it floods you with. This adware can collect information about your browsing habits, including the ads you click on, websites you visit, products you are interested in, and your IP address. Then this may be shared with third-parties who can start sending customized ads to your screen. The danger in that is that cyber criminals can exploit this adware and infect the embedded links of these ads and redirect you to potentially infected websites. If you do not want more malware applications on your system, or provide your personal and banking details to schemers, you should not hesitate to delete SwiftMediaConverter from your computer.
