- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
You might not know how or when Fastoplayer entered your system, but now that you have to deal with this application, there is no turning back. Do not panic, the add-on is just an adware application that simply tries to make you click on random pop-ups and other commercial offers. It does not cripple your system, and your biggest security concern associated with this program is the fact that Fastoplayer could be exploited by cyber criminals. To avoid such turn of events, please remove the extension at once. If you need any assistance with that, you can always leave us a comment and our support team will reply as soon as possible.
Although Fastoplayer is not a dangerous computer infection itself, it may enter your system with really suspicious programs. It is highly unlikely that users download the program individually. As far as our research is concerned, it shows that Fastoplayer usually gets distributed in software packages, and therefore, it would not be too far-fetched to claim that the extension entered your PC with multiple other applications you neither need nor want. Perhaps you were looking for some app in file-sharing websites, and you did not read all the installation steps carefully. Do not forget that third-party installers often carry several programs, and, most of the time, it is possible to avoid installing them if you only check all the installation steps carefully.
How to know that you have Fastoplayer on your browser? First, this extension affects only the Firefox browser. It might work on other browsers, too, but we have not found anything like that during our tests. Second, with the extension installed, you can find it in the list of add-ons via the Firefox settings. Finally, you will experience multiple redirections and pop-up assaults that will open such pages as wealthinaweek.co, cmn.com-notify.info, 30-day-change.com, and many others. Most of the websites will be related to some sort of a commercial scheme.
Technically, these websites are not malicious, but you should not linger on them. Fastoplayer is used by third parties to redirect you to these sites so that the people behind them would make easy money. What’s more, by clicking the pop-ups displayed by Fastoplayer you also help the extension’s creators generate profit as well. They make money via the pay-per-click system, and the downside of this scheme is that you get nothing in return. In fact, in the worst case scenario, you might be exposed to dangerous websites that are part of malware distribution networks. Thus, inadvertently, Fastoplayer could lead you to a malware infection.
That is why it is important that you get rid of this extension today. Make sure you delete the add-on via your browser settings and then scan the system for other potential threats. We have established already that it is more than likely that you have multiple unwanted programs on-board.
The most efficient way to get rid of all the dangerous threats is to delete them automatically with a licensed antispyware tool. Afterwards, invest in the security software and run regular PC scans to avoid similar issues in the future. Your computer’s security should be your utmost priority.
