Flash App+

Posted: February 4, 2020

The Flash App+ is a browser add-on available for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox The Flash App+ might be advertised as a useful utility that has the ability to extend your browser's features and introduce new helpful tools. However, users who install the Flash App+ software may find out quickly that the usefulness of this add-on is questionable – instead of introducing valuable features, it will apply one single change by setting Searchpowerapp.com as the browser's default search engine. This means that whenever you initiate a Web search through the address bar, your browser will take you to Searchpowerapp.com.

It is advisable to research the extensions you install if they have a small number of downloads and reviews, especially - there are many browser add-ons that pretend to be useful, but, in reality, their goal is to generate traffic for a page like Searchpowerapp.com. Such is the case with Flash App+, an extension that anti-virus products detect as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP).
