Home Malware Programs Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) HideMeFast


Posted: June 26, 2020

HideMeFast is an annoying but harmless browser add-on that is known to bring undesired changes to the configuration of Web browsers. Thankfully, HideMeFast does not use these changes to lure users into non-trustworthy Web destinations and, instead, it appears to simply redirect users to a search results page generated by Bing.com. While this behavior is not a major issue, you should not forget that HideMeFast's behavior may change at any point – this means that it may take you to less reliable search engines and trigger unexpected redirects.

HideMeFast can be removed manually, but we advise you to complete the task by using a suitable PC security tool that specializes in eliminating Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs). This is the best way to make sure that all of HideMeFast's components will be removed, and none of its changes will persist.
