FilePlus is a Potentially Unwanted Program that is likely to serve as a download manager that promotes pirated content. The official website of the services appears to be very poorly constructed, and it claims to provide users with the ability to download various movies, games, albums, and separate songs that are arranged in different categories. However, the distribution of pirated content is forbidden, and that any software that claims to do that may sometimes perform suspicious operations on your computer. In the case of FilePlus, we are talking about a program with zero reputation that may end up being more annoying than it appears to be.

According to the Terms & Services published on the official website of FilePlus, users who install this software also agree to be provided with 3rd-party advertisements brought by the partners of FilePlus. The contents of these ads may not be verified, and users might be exposed to uninteresting or fraudulent content such as offers to download suspicious software or pay for services with a questionable reputation.

Due to the dubious activities that FilePlus carries out on computers, it is not recommended to install this program. Users who have it on their PCs should take the measures to uninstall it by using a trustworthy computer security application or removing FilePlus manually via the Windows Control Panel.
