Streamit-online.com uses a modified Yahoo search engine which means the application could display additional advertising content among the collected results. Therefore, our researchers advise using more reputable search engines instead. As you see, the tool is considered to be untrustworthy and is classified as a potentially unwanted program. Further, in this text, we will talk about Streamit-online.com working manner, so if you do encounter it, we strongly recommend reading the rest of this text. What’s more, if you decide the application is not worthy of your trust, you could remove it manually while following the instructions available below. Since the potentially unwanted program works only on Google Chrome, for now, the steps will explain how to get rid of it from this particular browser alone. Besides, if you have other questions about this unreliable search engine, you can write a message in the comments section located below the article.
Streamit-online.com is available on Chrome Web Store page (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stream-itonline-default-s/ljlnjgehihckhjnmgdcmkmnbaaicifki) and its official site called install.streamit-online.com. However, given it is a potentially unwanted program we would not be surprised if the application was also spread through bundled software installers, pop-up advertisements, and so on. Usually, users come across such software while visiting unreliable file-sharing web pages containing offers for pirated software or freeware from unknown developers. If you like visiting such sites from time to time as well, we advise you to replace them with legitimate sites of developers who create reputable and well-received applications or tools. Another smart idea is to pick advanced installation settings when installing a program, because it may allow you to see more information or even deselect the additionally suggested tools you might not want to get.
As the software’s description says, Streamit-online.com might replace user’s default search engine on Google Chrome. The description also says the application is supposed to allow the user find the results according to his search keywords or best music websites and let the user save and listen to his favorite radio stations at any time. These features might sound useful, but the truth is you can get this all without installing this potentially unwanted program. No doubt, all search engines display the results according to the used keywords, so if you type the song’s title or the artist's name, you will find the information you need with google.com, search.yahoo.com, or any other search tool too. As for websites that stream music all you have to do is add word stream next to your keyword combination, and the gathered results should show you streaming websites that have the song you wish to find. Moreover, as we explained at the beginning of the article Streamit-online.com shows modified search results which means besides finding your favorite songs you could come across various annoying advertising content.
What makes us think this potentially unwanted program could show advertising content is the application’s End User License Agreement document as it states “The Product includes links to third party sites or content.” More than this it also says “You acknowledge that we have no control over and assume no responsibility for Third Party Content” and that “The availability of any Third-Party Content as part of the Product is not an endorsement, authorization or approval of such Third-Party Content.” In other words, the search engine’s creators might not review third-party content to ensure it would be safe to interact with, which means the ads could come from anywhere and advertise anything at all.
Unfortunately, if the ads come from unreliable web pages, they could promote fake lotteries or surveys, other potentially unwanted programs or threats alike, malicious software, etc. Naturally, if you would not like to encounter such content and risk your computer’s safety, we recommend deleting Streamit-online.com right away. To get rid of it manually you should follow the instructions located below as they will explain the whole process in detail. Another way to eliminate this potentially unwanted program is to scan the system with a reliable antimalware tool and then press the given deletion button.
