Type: Potentially Unwanted Application


RunSpeedCheck is a tool that promises to enable users to check the speed of the Internet connection for free. Before you install this application on your computer, there are two things you need to know about it. First, it will change your default search provider. Second, you will see a new button added at the top of your web browser. At the time of analysis, RunSpeedCheck was compatible with only one browser – Google Chrome, but we cannot guarantee that new versions of this program compatible with other browsers, including Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, will not be released in the near future by tits developer. There are two official sources this potentially unwanted program can be downloaded from. First, users can get it from the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/runspeedcheck/npedfajfjdbafnipamnhoiepnonjbhih), or they might install it from its official website (https://install.runspeedcheck.com/?pid=11111). It acts the same no matter where the user gets it from. Have you found RunSpeedCheck installed on your computer without your knowledge? In this case, the immediate RunSpeedCheck removal is what you should do the second you find out that it has been installed without your knowledge.

RunSpeedCheck is promoted as a useful tool that tests the speed of the Internet connection and then helps to improve it. The tool can be started by typing speed in the browser’s URL, hitting Tab on the keyboard, and then pressing Enter. Once you activate the tool, click Go and wait till you are presented with the test results. According to researchers who have tested RunSpeedCheck, it does not work as it should at the moment. To be more specific, it will not check your Internet speed. Yes, the chances are high that it will be fixed in the near future, but there is definitely no point in installing it today. Of course, you have to make the final decision yourself. If you still decide to download and install RunSpeedCheck on your PC, you should not forget that your default search provider will be altered. A new search provider will redirect all your searches via feed.runspeedcheck.com to Yahoo. According to specialists, there is a possibility that users will see some modified search results too. This is one of the main drawbacks of RunSpeedCheck. These modified search results are usually not malicious, but do not be surprised if you find yourself on a random website that does not have anything you are searching for on the web. The application will also automatically collect some information about you. We have checked its Privacy Policy for you to find out what types of information about users it records. It has turned out that both types of information, i.e. non-personally identifiable and personal information can be recorded by RunSpeedCheck. Speaking about personal details, it should only record identifiers and contact information provided by the user consciously.

It is not very likely that all the users who encounter RunSpeedCheck download it from its official website or the Chrome Web Store. According to researchers, it is very likely that this potentially unwanted application may spread alternatively as well. For example, bundling is a popular method used to promote software, so, theoretically, you could have installed it together with another program too if you cannot remember downloading RunSpeedCheck from any of its official sources. Some users end up with this potentially unwanted program when they encounter the commercial advertisement promoting it and click on it. It is not always easy to protect the computer against untrustworthy software, so we highly recommend installing reputable security software. Make sure it gets all the newest updates so that it could protect you against the latest computer threats.

You will delete RunSpeedCheck quite easily this time, but you might encounter potentially unwanted programs that are harder to remove in the future if you do nothing to improve your virtual security today. You can find our manual removal instructions below this article – you will get rid of RunSpeedCheck without difficulty. Of course, the manual method will never be as easy as the automated one. Users who opt to clean their systems automatically simply need to perform a system scan with an antimalware scanner to eliminate all active infections. What can be easier?
