EasyVid is a software that is classified a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that exhibits adware symptoms. EasyVid is a product published by EasySoft Inc, claiming to provide easier video conversion. Adware-supported applications such as EasyVid are often included in pay-per-install based bundles. Since users are often distracted and unaware of the options available to them, computer security specialists advise them to read the EULA (End User License Agreement) carefully before installing free software. EasyVid may seem like a useful tool, but it is also used as a monetization platform. Users may notice several unwanted commercial ads by EasyVid being displayed while they browse. EasyVid is the kind of adware application that collects information about your IP address, utilizes cookies and java. The software may also collect info about your OS. In addition, there is an EasyVid Custom search that may replace your default search engine, leading to often redirects and potentially more adware.
