Criteria for Volume Count is relative to a daily detection count.

The Your Speed Test Now is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), which is installed on computers in the form of a browser add-on that is compatible with Google Chrome only. As the name of the extension suggests, the Your Speed Test Now is meant to help users measure their Internet speed by introducing them to a convenient button, which takes them to an internet speed test page as soon as it is clicked. While this may sound useful, there are hundreds of Internet speed testing services, which you can find via a quick Web search, and they will not ask you to install 3rd-party browser add-ons to use them.
In addition to not offering anything unique, the Your Speed Test Now's installation also might end up bothering users by tampering with the Google Chrome's settings. The change in question only concerns Google Chrome's new tab page, which will be replaced by a website affiliated with the Your Speed Test Now. The website is not harmful, and it might serve you well, but you should not forget that the quality of the services the Your Speed Test Now's new tab offers might change in the near future. At the moment, the new tab page works as a search engine, which also hosts links to several Internet speed testing services.
Users who are not satisfied with the Your Speed Test Now's features should proceed to uninstall this add-on from their PCs. Since it is not harmful, it is possible to remove it with the help of Google Chrome's extension manager manually. Don't forget that you can achieve an even better result by disposing of the PUP with the assistance of a credible PC security software suite.
