- Annoying Pop-up's

If you believe the marketing blah-blah that Funfeedr tries to feed you with saying, “Enjoy the hottest content on the web directly from your browser”, you may end up with an ad-supported program on your computer. If you download this useless browser add-on, your screen might get hot with potentially harmful third-party advertisements. But as unreliable this add-on is to deliver its promised function, it is just as unreliable when it comes to advertisements. It is also important to understand about this adware that you can practically only use it in older versions of Mozilla Firefox. But, if you are a security-minded user and you keep your browsers and software up-to-date, chances are you cannot use it anyway. However, direct download is not the only way this add-on can appear on your computer. For the details and the solution about how you can delete Funfeedr, please continue reading our article.
What are the chances that people find the official website at funfeedr.com? Not too much. So how is it worth developing such an application and share it for free, if it is only available for download on its website that may not even be visited by enough people? Well, first of all it is free because it makes money through other channels than the price of the product itself, namely, mostly by displaying third-party ads. Second, obviously, the creators need a better way to distribute their product to as many users as possible. That is why they use the so-called software bundling method. However, these bundles may hold other threats too as these packages may be packed with other malware infections as well. Installing such a bundle can easily multiply your system security issues in one go. Therefore, we ask you to be very careful anytime you install software packages. Most of the time, you do have a chance to say no to unwanted components. This is the typical situation when it pays to be patient and go for the Custom or Advanced installation option instead of the quick and usually recommended one.
Funfeedr poses as a useful tool that enables you to easily access the hottest news and gossip on the net. But who would want an add-on that can only work – if at all – in older versions of Firefox? Why would you not want a decent extension that works fine in all the browsers and is not as suspicious as this one? It is important to know about this adware that it may gather data about you and your browsing activities that can also be personally identifiable. If this is shared with third parties, you might be targeted with customized advertisements and god knows in what other ways potential schemers might misuse your details. All in all, having this add-on on your computer is totally useless and it may even pose a threat to your virtual security. Removing Funfeedr is a must, if you plan to keep your computer secure.
So, here is what you can do if you want to solve the Funfeedr issue manually. As a matter of fact, this may be the simplest way to get rid of an infection. All you have to do is erase the browser extension in Mozilla Firefox. That is all. Does that sound relieving? If you have never removed extensions, please use our guide below. Do not forget about the rest of the infections that may be hiding on your computer. It is important to make sure that there is no other threat present. You can do that by running an online malware scanner or you can install an antimalware tool. Having security software on your computer is definitely the best solution if you do not want to worry about further malware attacks.
