FastFormFinder Removal Guide

Do you know what FastFormFinder is?

FastFormFinder falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs or PUPs in short. From its description it might sound like the tool could be advanced and useful, but our computer security specialists say it provides nothing more than a search engine and a toolbar full of links to web pages the user could find by surfing the Internet. Apparently, the links may lead to websites providing tax, citizenship, and various other forms. Thus, if you installed it thinking the extension can somehow generate needed forms for you, sadly, the truth is it can only point you to the sources that can actually provide them. It seems to us the main add-on’s task might be to replace the user’s homepage with the FastFormFinder’s search engine. The problem is, this search engine could show suspicious advertising material among its displayed ads and so endanger the system or the user’s privacy. Because of this, we advise deleting the extension before anything goes wrong. If you think it would be the wisest choice as well, you could use the removal guide available below.
