Fast Power EcoSearch
Fast Power EcoSearch has all of the right words in its name. It is meant to be fast, powerful, and economical. Of course, a name does not really mean anything, and even the most dangerous threats could hide behind extremely believable and trustworthy-looking names. According to our research team, this Google Chrome extension is a completely new piece, and at the time of research, the company behind it was in the beginning stages of marketing it online. It even has a unique YouTube channel set up with two unique videos that, allegedly, display the advantages of the extension. The thing is that these advantages are kind of questionable, and our research team has found reasons to classify the extension as a PUP (potentially unwanted program). Are you trying to remove Fast Power EcoSearch? If that is what you came here for, we can show you how to get rid of the PUP. If you are looking for information that could help you determine whether you can trust the extension or you need to delete it, we have information for you as well.
According to the information presented along with the Chrome Web Store installer, Fast Power EcoSearch can “speed up your Google Chrome browser several times,” but the single review left by a former user suggests that it does not work at all. The description also informs that an “Accelerated search powered by Yahoo” is included, and if you are not interested in changing your search settings, this should make you stop and think for a moment. If you end up initiating the installation of Fast Power EcoSearch, you are also informed that the browsing history can be read and that fastecosearch.com can change the search settings. When we analyzed the PUP, it replaced the default search provider, which is why some users delete it as a browser hijacker. When we tested it, it redirected to Bing, not Yahoo. Although the results were not modified, we are sure that you do not need an extension just to change your default search provider. If you are expecting a speedier browser, we have to disappoint you. You have better chances of speeding up your browser by clearing cache and deleting cookies and browsing history.
Fast Power EcoSearch uses false claims to ensure downloads, it places fastecosearch.com as the default search provider, it reads browsing history, and it might collect other kinds of information. These are the reasons we identify this extension as a potentially unwanted program. It is up to you to decide whether you want to delete this PUP, but that is what we recommend doing. It should not be hard for you to delete Fast Power EcoSearch if you follow the guide below, which also includes steps that show how to clear the browsing data. Perhaps your browsers will start working more smoothly after that. If you find it impossible to remove the PUP manually, or if you discover other suspicious pieces of software, we strongly suggest implementing legitimate anti-malware software because it can ensure full removal and also full-time protection afterward. In the future, you want to be very careful when installing extensions and software that promise amazing services, even if they are free.
