While the application can help you learn your Internet speed so could one of the legit online tools that do not need to be installed. Therefore, if you do not want to keep potentially unwanted programs on the system, we advise deleting Pro Speed Check and picking one of the online Internet speed check tools. If you do not know how to remove the add-on from Google Chrome (the only browser it is currently compatible with), you should take a look at the deletion instructions provided below. However, if you have not decided yet and want to know more about this extension first, we invite you to read the rest of our article.

One of the things we should explain about Pro Speed Check is where it might come from. Our researchers say it has an official site called and, at the moment of writing, it is still available on the page. Nonetheless, besides these two sources, the potentially unwanted program could travel with bundled installers, pop-up ads, and so on. A lot of such applications are distributed through various sources, some of them are reliable, and some might be not so much. For example, installers bundled with potentially unwanted programs could come from unreliable file-sharing web pages. Thus, if you want to stay away from such applications in the future, we advise not only to pay more attention to the software you pick, but also to always make sure you are downloading it from reputable sources. Of course, installing a reliable antimalware tool that could identify doubtful content for you might be a huge help too.

Adding Pro Speed Check to your Google Chrome may change its default search engine. Our specialists say the potentially unwanted program might replace it with a search tool of its own called What’s more, it seems if you insert a search query to the application’s search tool, it might redirect you to a modified Yahoo search engine. Modified search engine could mean the results it displays might be altered, for example, to place additional advertising material that would not otherwise show up with the results. Talking about third-party ads, it is possible Pro Speed Check could show such content since its Privacy Policy document mentions the software may gather both personal and non-personal information, which could be used to “Recommend content based on your preferences.” Recommended content might translate into third-party advertising, although we cannot be sure as for the short period we tested the application, we have not seen any of it. Still, there is a chance it could appear after using the potentially unwanted program for some time.

Furthermore, installing Pro Speed Check should give you access to its Internet speed testing tool. Our researchers say the feature can test Internet speed, but it does not look more advanced than online alternatives. Meaning, if you want to test your Internet speed, but do not want to use a potentially unwanted program for it that may gather information about you and show advertising material, you could exchange it for a reliable online Internet speed testing tool. If you decide to do so, we can help you get rid of Pro Speed Check. The instructions located below show how to remove the extension in question from Google Chrome.
