FilmsApp Search is a Google Chrome browser extension known as a potentially unwanted program, so if you are looking for a tool that would allow you finding movie-related information on the web quicker and easier, you should choose another program over it despite the fact that it is promoted as a useful tool for searching information “about movie actors, movies, images, video clips, and more.” Potentially unwanted programs are, of course, not real malware, but they still cannot be fully trusted, so it is better not to keep them active on the system. Luckily, since these are not harmful infections, their removal is usually very easy and uncomplicated. Before we tell you more about the removal procedure, we want to explain to you why FilmsApp Search is considered a potentially unwanted application. This information will help you to understand why such a decent-looking piece of software needs to be removed.
FilmsApp Search is not a harmful malicious application, as mentioned in the previous paragraph of this article; however, it still has several drawbacks that make it a potentially unwanted program. First, it changes the default search tool set on Google Chrome. It will set its own search tool and, as a consequence, your all searches will be first redirected to http://movie.eanswers.com/ and only then you will see Yahoo! search results. Specialists at pcthreat.com say that the final product, i.e., these Yahoo! search results might be modified. That is, they might contain links that only promote third-party pages. We cannot promise that all these promoted websites will be reliable. Theoretically, you might even be taken to pages promoting untrustworthy third-party software because advertising revenue is the only important thing here. In other words, nobody cares about users’ safety. The altered default search tool is not the only symptom showing that FilmsApp Search has been installed successfully. As long as this browser extension is active on your Google Chrome browser, you will also see a button at the upper part of your browser next to the address box. It will open a small search window that will allow you to perform web searches on the web. Some users find this feature quite useful. If you are one of them, you should know that you are still not allowed to keep this extension because it is a potentially unwanted program, and there is a bunch of similar programs that are fully reliable on the market. You could start using any of them immediately after you delete FilmsApp Search.

According to specialists at pcthreat.com, such programs can be spread in software bundles and, because of this, enter users’ computers unnoticed.
