Do you know what FilmsApp Home is?
Recently we talked about a potentially unwanted program called MusicApp Home, and now we have found another similar browser extension for Google Chrome titled FilmsApp Home. Apparently, both of the tools were created by the same company, and they can be downloaded from the same website called superappbox.com. Provided, you visited this site yourself and possibly ended up downloading the application we will discuss in this text we highly recommend reading the rest of the article to get to know it better. Users who want to eliminate the potentially unwanted program could slide at the end of the article and follow the available removal guide. Naturally, for some such a task might appear to be a bit difficult, so do not forget you can just use an antimalware tool instead if you do not wish to keep FilmsApp Home any longer.
Same as the music extension we mentioned at the beginning, FilmsApp Home can be found on the software’s official site called superappbox.com and Chrome Web Store page (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/filmsapp-home/biddghhpijogolaiffcahpopcenejcck). However, we doubt a lot of users download it from the Chrome Web Store page since the description says there are only 132 users at the moment of writing. Our researchers tell the potentially unwanted program could be spread via pop-up ads providing a link to the application’s official web page to distribute the product to a broader range of computer users. It is even possible the extension might come with bundled software installers in which case there might be users who could download and install it unknowingly. Thus, to avoid similar unreliable applications the next time we would recommend both staying away from suspicious pop-up ads and torrent or other file-sharing web pages.FilmsApp Home screenshot

What’s more, on the same paper, FilmsApp Home creators inform users they cannot be hold reliable for any third-party content displayed through their software or the website. This might mean if the potentially unwanted program displays third-party advertising there is not knowing if the promoted content will be reliable. In other words, there is a possibility some of it could be malicious or possibly dangerous. Another reason, we believe the application might show third-party advertising is because it may change user’s homepage with a suspicious search engine. Our researchers noticed the search result being redirected through a suspicious server; this could be done to inject them with the additional advertisements.
