FavGenius Removal Guide

Do you know what FavGenius is?

FavGenius is an application that will allow you to store all your links in one place. It means that you will never lose a link again and be able to access your favorite websites easily and quickly. Even though this program seems to be very beneficial, the truth is that it is not, so we do not think that it is the best idea to keep it installed on the system. Actually, specialists also say that it might start performing various undesirable activities. For example, it will show ads on your screen, it might connect to the Internet without permission, and it might even collect information about your browsing activities. As FavGenius shows annoying commercial advertisements, it is classified as an advertising-supported application (adware). It is up to you whether to keep such a program installed on your computer, but we believe that it would be best if you get rid of it and install a more reliable program instead.

It is not advisable to keep FavGenius installed because it will show various coupons, deals, offers, promo codes, and other kinds of advertisements. The content of the ads depends on what you are browsing that particular moment. Thus, you might find all those commercial advertisements very interesting. Make sure that you still do not click on them because you might end up on other web pages and might infect your system with malicious software very easily and quickly. As has been already mentioned, FavGenius might perform other activities behind your back too, for instance, it might record your IP address, the websites you surf on the web, the links you click on, and even the content you access. It might need your Internet connection to send these collected details to third-party advertisers. As you can see, FavGenius is a rather suspicious program, so you have to decide yourself whether you really want to keep it installed.FavGenius Removal GuideFavGenius screenshot

In most cases, users get FavGenius from its official website favgenius.com; however, our specialists say that it might be distributed using the bundling method in the future. In other words, this program might enter your system together with other programs, especially if these programs are known to be freeware or shareware and you download them from third-party websites. If you do not want to encounter any infections in the future, you should install a security tool on your system and always keep it enabled. On top of that, you should surf the web carefully and install only those programs that you know are 100% reliable.
