Fast Free Converter enables PC users to convert songs & videos into different formats so they are compatible with the device. However, Fast Free Converter may install itself as a plug-in, add-on, or extension on the web browser without the PC user’s knowledge, and it may access all the data involving the websites the computer user visits, cookies, and search queries. Fast Free Converter is not a malware threat, but because of its annoying behavior, it is detected as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) or adware by many security programs. Fast Free Converter may spread bundled with freeware and shareware applications that PC user download from the Internet. Fast Free Converter may be distributed as a fake Flash Player update via a bogus Flash Player website that is created by cybercriminals to fool PC users into installing all types of doubtful Firefox extensions. The fake website instructs PC users to update the application since their current version might carry vulnerabilities. However, instead of a Flash Player update, computer users are provided with a Flash video player application that is packaged with several other suspicious free programs including Fast Free Converter. Computer users can prevent the third-party applications from being installed, but only if they hit the ‘Decline’ button. However, those PC users who aren’t careful will possibly click the ‘Next’ button and install unsafe freeware and shareware programs on their computers.
