Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application


Fdownloader is a potentially unwanted application that tries to masquerade as a useful file download manager. However, it is unlikely that the program will meet your download needs and requirements, as its promises to. What’s more likely, it will annoy you with commercial advertisements that you will undoubtedly encounter. In additional this questionable tool spies on you by using cookies, beacons, and pixels. Please be aware that all the collected data can be disclosed to unknown third parties, and nobody knows who can be in possession of this data. You may also be an unsuspecting owner of additional suspicious applications that might have come along with Fdownloader. Start to clean your computer by deleting this unreliable file downloader.

Our security researchers have classified Fdownloader as a potentially unwanted application because it is often put in software bundles. Creators of unreliable programs try various ways to trick unaware users into accepting those applications. One of the ways is to place their product into a package with legitimate free software that is available to download from the Web. Users should know that developers of malicious programs also use the same bundling method for the distribution of their programs. So, you have to be very careful whenever you install any free application. Examine each section of its installation wizard and deselect all the suspicious-looking offers to install additional software.

Of course, it is possible that some users decided to give Fdownloader a try enticed by the promises this program makes. But they soon will be disappointed with this application. First of all, its functionality is rather limited, and it is highly unlikely that you will boost your downloading experience with the help of this tool. In addition, this program will surely display commercial ads. Some of the advertising content will be provided by third parties. You should know that Fdownloader “is not responsible for the privacy practices or business of such third parties.” So, the download manager bears no liability for any content you may encounter by interacting with those third parties. And if the worst happens, and you land on a damaged or corrupted webpage, face an inappropriate or offensive content, you will have only yourself to blame for this.

Please keep in mind that your virtual safety can also be at risk because Fdownloader monitors your Internet browsing habits. For example, the program knows what pages you visit and what you search for on the Web. This information can always be transferred to unknown business partners of this file downloader. According to Fdownloader, this is done to serve you with personally customized ads. However, no one can ensure you that some unknown entities will not use data about you for illicit goals. Increase your online safety level by removing the bad downloader.
