If you are crazy about new films, you probably have several applications that help you find the latest news about the newest releases. FilmsApp Home tries to promote itself as one of such applications, but our security researchers say that you should not even think of adding it to your browser. This extension is a potentially unwanted program that could perform unwanted modifications on your browser. These modifications may eventually expose you to various security threats. You should remove FilmsApp Home immediately and then look for other potential threats that might be hiding in your system. For that, do not hesitate to acquire a licensed antispyware tool.
It is really hard to claim that FilmsApp Home is a dangerous infection because this program has an official homepage. We can easily access it via superappbox.com. And the point is that the Add to Chrome button on the site works without any glitches. As you can, see FilmsApp Home works only on the Chrome browser, so it may not affect other browsers that you have. But the thing is that users who often complain about this application usually download it bundled with freeware apps. So if this extension does not affect your browser, there is a good chance that other programs you downloaded it with will.
Another thing is that if we take a closer at the program’s homepage, we will see that there are at least three other extensions in the same family. FilmsApp Home seems to be practically identical to MusicApp Search, FilmsApp Home, and MusicApp Home. It is also easy to tell that the other apps deal with either music or movies. In fact, on the homepage, below the FilmsApp Home section you can see the following promotion line: Easily find new movies. So it would seem that this extension should help you find the latest features without much searching.
However, the question is whether you really a third-party extension to look for the latest movies when you can easily do that via a number of movie-themed websites. Not to mention that this program clearly is not the only undesirable app that entered your system. We believe that those users who add FilmsApp Home to their browser willingly via official sources know how to get rid of it, too. But if this extension was added to your system accidentally, you might be at a loss. What’s more, if it came bundled with freeware, there might be several other extensions or adware applications added to your PC as well.
The good thing about this extension is that it does not hide its presence. You will see that it is on your computer immediately because this program changes your default homepage. When it gets added to your browser, it changes your homepage to a blank page that looks like a very clean search engine. It is not recommended to run search queries through this site, but if you do, you will notice that first, the program redirects you to movie.eanswers.com. After that, your query will land on a modified Yahoo! Search page. What’s more, the search results might also be modified according to your likes and preferences because the extension is bound to connect information on your web browsing habits.
That is the most intrusive and the most alarming aspect of this extension. If it collects information on the websites you visit and the keywords you enter, the program may later share that data with unreliable third parties for marketing purposes. While it is obviously more annoying than malicious, there is always a chance that something might go wrong along the way and cyber criminals might exploit FilmsApp Home for their own purposes.
You need to protect your personal information and your computer from such exploitations by removing FilmsApp Home today. Luckily, it is very easy to delete this extension, but let us a not forget that it might be just one of the many unwanted applications on-board.
