EasyMediaConverter is a newly released media converter. It might seem as a legitimate program, but our analysis of this program has revealed that that it is a potentially unwanted program that you might want to remove. This converter has two versions, one is free but ad-supported and the other is paid and ad-free. The ad supported version is the one that we will talk about. First of all, you may find its advertisements intrusive as they may hamper your browsing experience. Second of all, the ads may be misleading. And Third, EasyMediaConverter is set to gather information about you. So if you disapprove of such practices, then we suggest that you get rid of it at your earliest convenience.
Any time a software developer does not digitally sign its product means that something is not right. And that is the case with EasyMediaConverter. We do not know who created it, but we did manage to find another program that is very similar to this one and we think it comes from the same developer. It is called SimpleMediaConverter. And the association of these two converters can be observed even from their names. As far as EasyMediaConverter’s dissemination methods are concerned, not many people are getting it now, because it is only featured on its dedicated website at Easymediaconverter.com. However, we think that it might be bundled with other applications in the near future as bundling is more effective. The reason why it is more effective is because users fail to check software bundles for additional software. Therefore, we urge you to opt for custom settings when installing software.
As mentioned, EasyMediaConverter is able to convert a multitude of different media formats. And it does this rather well, but it is not the best program you can get. Anyway, the main reason why it is potentially unreliable is because it can display third-party advertisements on your browser while you surf the Web. We fear that some of the content that can be promoted via its ads may be unreliable. It is quite possible that it may promote other potentially unwanted programs that are of no use. Some PUPs mislead users and trick them into purchasing an ineffective program that only scans for show or what have you.
Furthermore, we are concerned with this program’s ability to gather information about the users who use it. EasyMediaConverter only collects non-personally identifiable information that includes your IP address which shows your approximate geographical location, websites you have viewed, clicked links, and so on. This information is most likely used to improve the software, but it may also be used for marketing and advertising purposes as well. We do not think that borderline spying is ethical, so you should take this into consideration as well.
If you are willing to swap EasyMediaConverter for another converter, then by all means do it, because this program is not worth keeping. Yes, it can convert a lot of different formats but so can other programs that do not subject you to unreliable third-party advertisements or gather information about you. Choosing a good program is sometimes very tricky, because there are a lot of programs to choose from. You should always do more research before making a decision.
