Do you watch videos online often? Would you like it to feel more like watching a movie in a cinema? Perhaps Theater Mode may look like a browser extension that can help you with that, but we would strongly discourage you to install and use this application. Our security researchers say that Theater Mode is an adware program, and as such it will surely subject you and your system to potential security threats. If you care about your information and your PC security, you will have this adware program removed immediately. Scroll down to the bottom of this description for the manual removal instructions and get rid of Theater Mode ASAP.
When you open your Control Panel to delete Theater Mode, you may find an entire list of unfamiliar programs. If their installation date coincides with that of Theater Mode, it means that all of the applications were installed at the same time. This would suggest that this adware program came bundled with freeware, and you installed it on your PC willingly. Adware programs are often distribution in software packages that are available for download from file-sharing, torrent and other p2p websites that are involved in freeware distribution networks. Whenever you download a program from such a website, you have to keep in mind all the potential threats that might await you.
What’s more, it is also possible to download this program from theatermodeapp.com. This would be the official homepage for the application. The official site says that with Theater Mode you can “set the mood and dim the lights.” That would mean you could dim the background around the video you are streaming, but that is highly redundant because you can simply enter the full screen mode. Even so, the creators of this application are very keen on trying to convince you that this program “enhances your ability to watch videos on the web.”
However, it is far more likely that this application will only slow down your browser and expose you to potentially corrupted content. Since Theater Mode is a freeware application, it most certainly needs to support its development costs somehow, and most of the freeware apps do that by displaying third-party commercial content. In other words, Theater Mode is used as an advertising tool by third parties. This type of monetary practice is highly prevalent, and there is nothing illegal about it. Nevertheless, we would like to point out that almost ANYONE could make use of this program to promote their links, and if cyber criminals do that, you are in deep trouble.
The best way to avoid any potential security issues is to remove programs that could be associated with computer safety threats. Unfortunately, Theater Mode is one of them, and the sooner to get rid of this program, the better. Go to Control Panel and delete this application right now.
Please remember that manual removal may not be enough to protect your system from harm. Therefore, you should acquire a computer security program of your choice to run a full system scan and then safeguard it against similar intruders in the future. Also, do not forget to stay away from unfamiliar websites that might be part of adware distribution network!
