Type: Potentially Unwanted Application


Stream+ appears to be an extension that is classified as a potentially unwanted program. Its description says that it inserts “Sponsored Search results into Google Search.” It is probably safe to say that from an extension with this particular title, one might expect it would provide streaming content, but it seems its name has nothing to do with its purpose. Thus, if you thought you were downloading a tool that would provide you with streaming content, you might be left disappointed. In such a case, you may want to get rid of Stream+, especially if the idea of seeing more sponsored content does not sound tempting to you. You can learn how to delete this extension manually by following the instructions available below this article. Plus, we can offer our comments section if you need more assistance or have any questions about this extension.

Currently, Stream+ is available on Chrome Web Store and its official site called stream-plus.000webhostapp.com. However, since it is a potentially unwanted program, we would not be surprised if it was being spread through channels that are often used to distribute applications alike. Creators of such software often spread it with bundled software installers and pop-ups or other ads. To avoid receiving such tools, we recommend researching all the programs you are interested in before installing them. Firstly, you should find out who developed your chosen application. Next, we recommend looking for expert and user reviews. Such material may help you find out things like does the tool fall under the classification of potentially unwanted programs or if it could be dangerous. Also, it might be easier to avoid questionable tools as well as malicious material if you install a reliable antimalware tool that could stand guard.

At least for now, Stream+ is compatible only with Google Chrome. Our researchers say that after it is added on a browser, it does not change a user’s default search engine, homepage, or new tab page like similar potentially unwanted programs do. As explained earlier, the extension does not stream any content either, even though its title might make you think it is supposed to. According to the application’s description, it adds sponsored content to Google search results. To be more precise, the description explains that the extension ads additional sponsored content that is not provided by Google. In other words, the tool could insert promotional content from its third-party partners. What you should know is that such material might be targeted advertisements. It is possible because the application’s Privacy Policy says Stream+ might gather information such as search queries or browsing history and that it could be used to provide a user with “relevant advertising.” Another thing you ought to know about the third-party content is that there are no guarantees that it will be reliable as the tool’s creators claim they take no responsibility for third-party material.

All in all, Stream+ might disappoint users who could expect streaming content from it. Also, the fact it may add more advertising content into search results might be seen as both unwanted and annoying functions by users who cannot stand targeted advertisements. However, the application is not malicious, and users who do not think they see enough of advertising content or like such material might want to keep it on their browsers. The only thing we would recommend in such a case is to be careful with third-party ads and always check if they come from reliable sources before interacting with them. As for users who prefer seeing as fewer advertisements as possible, they may wish to remove Stream+.

There are a couple of ways to get rid of this potentially unwanted program. The first one is to erase it from Google Chrome’s extensions menu.
