What can be said about this browser extension

FF Protect AntiVir is thought to be a questionable browser extension that gets unwittingly set up by people. Users generally get invaded when they inattentively install free applications, and what this will do is lead to your browser adding the extension and settings modified. The plug-in will then reroute you and show you more ads than you are used to. It won’t bring anything beneficial to you as it wants to simply generate revenue. These types of plug-in aren’t considered to be malevolent themselves but they may still bring about undesirable consequences. You could end up with a severe malware contamination if you were rerouted to a compromised page. You are needlessly putting your operating system in danger, so we encourage you to uninstall FF Protect AntiVir.

Doubtful add-on spread methods

Freeware is used to help questionable browser extensions spread. Of course, you could also get them from browser stores or official sites as well. But generally, they come as optional items that, unless you uncheck them, will set up automatically alongside. And you choosing to use Default mode during freeware setup basically provides them the necessary consent for setup. You should select Advanced or Custom settings so as to see whether anything is added to the application you are installing. If you notice something being there, uncheck it/them. Your system may become exposed to all kinds of not wanted software if you are not careful. And if it managed to set up, terminate FF Protect AntiVir.

Should you uninstall FF Protect AntiVir

No good things will come from you keeping the plug-in. The main reason behind their existence is to route you to promoted sites and to display you ads, making the owners income. If you permit the add-on to install into your OS, you will find your browser’s settings modified and its promoted web page will be set as your homepage, new tabs and search engine. After the modifications are executed, no matter if you are using Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, the website will load every time. And if you attempt to undoing the alterations, the plug-in may be preventing you from doing it, so you’ll have to first terminate FF Protect AntiVir. The add-on will also adjoin unusual toolbars to your browser and begin creating large amounts of advertisements. You will usually run into these questionable extensions in Google Chrome but that does not mean other browsers are thoroughly safe. Opting to use the extension could result in you being exposed to dangerous content, which is why you’re not recommended to use it. These extensions aren’t categorized as malevolent themselves, they may be able lead to a malware threat. Which is why you should abolish FF Protect AntiVir.
