Memory Game Plugin
Memory Game Plugin does look like a useful piece of software that enables users to play the Memory Game right from their web browsers’ main windows, but it is far from a perfect application, researchers working at pcthreat.com say. As they have discovered, it was developed by the Russian company, and it works as a potentially unwanted application. In other words, it is not malicious software, but it has several features typical for potentially unwanted software and thus might not act as a decent program. According to specialists, even though the game itself works fine, the chances are high that this piece of software has been primarily created to collect information about users, which means that users who decide to keep it active on their systems might experience privacy-related problems. Memory Game Plugin should be removed as soon as possible also if it has affected your Google Chrome without your knowledge. It is not harmful malware, as you already know, so you should be able to remove it without any problems.
Some users decide to keep Memory Game Plugin installed because this browser extension allows them to play the Memory Game for free, but it is not what our researchers recommend. Since research carried out by them has clearly shown that it is not a fully reliable add-on, they recommend getting rid of it as soon as possible. They say so because it is very likely that Memory Game Plugin is only used to collect information about users. Potentially unwanted applications usually do not gather any information that can identify users personally, but it might surely be used to collect non-personal details like IP address, links clicked, geographic location, etc. On top of that, there is a possibility that it will start showing advertisements to users. If you have already started seeing them, you will get rid of them only by deleting Memory Game Plugin fully. Make sure you do not click on these ads you see in the meantime because you might be taken to shady websites. Last but not least, if you experience redirections to unknown pages out of the blue, Memory Game Plugin might be the one responsible for this too, so it is worth checking the list of active add-ons. If it can be found there, it should be deleted immediately. There are many websites where you can play Memory Game for free, so the deletion of this potentially unwanted program will not be a huge loss.
Memory Game Plugin has three different links it can be downloaded from at the Chrome Web Store and three different homepages (59inchws.xyz, 41newupdate.xyz, and 10chrm100218ddw.ru) which are no longer working. This finding suggests that some users install Memory Game Plugin consciously. Of course, there is no doubt that not all of them install it on their computers voluntarily. We are sure there are people who find this browser plugin installed on their computers and cannot even explain why they have it there. According to our specialists, this potentially unwanted application should not differ much from other programs categorized as potentially unwanted software the way it is distributed. That is, the chances are high that it is also spread bundled and can be downloaded by clicking on fake links located on Torrent and P2P websites. In addition, users might get redirected to sources it can be downloaded straight from another dubious domain visited or after clicking on a suspicious link. Potentially unwanted applications are not considered real malicious software, but it is not always that easy to avoid them. Because of this, we highly recommend having security software active on the system 24/7. It will not let a single suspicious application to get onto your computer.
We are sure you will not find the Memory Game Plugin removal a hard task because it is installed on users’ computers as an ordinary browser extension. It means that you just need to access the Add-ons Manager to be able to get rid of it.
