The Your Vid Converter is a suspicious adware that may modify your Web clients in a way that you may not appreciate. The developer of this questionable extension is SaferBrowser, which is not a respectable company. It has filled the cyberspace with dozens of identical ad-based applications that try to take advantage of the user. Your Vid Converter is expected to help you change the formats of video and audio files. SaferBrowser assures that the tool is compatible with over 1200 different formats. Such a large diversity of multimedia files doesn't exist, to begin with. The Your Vid Converter is not a stand-alone program that can perform the conversion. It is a Web toolbar that tries to redirect you to third-party pages. The promoted sites may offer you highly questionable software to change the extensions of your video files. They also may ask you to register and pay for features that may not be worth it. The Your Vid Converter sometimes evades the attention of the PC user and enters silently. This issue may occur if you download freeware from unverified sources. The name of this deceptive tactic is bundling. It is advisable to load all cost-free applications via the 'Advanced' menu to uncheck additional unwanted programs. Once the adware enters, it may attach towards Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer immediately. This ad-based extension doesn't only create a toolbar with sponsored links. It also may change a variety of settings without the need for the approval of the person. The Your Vid Converter may change your homepage to search.yourvidconverter.com. This unreliable platform also may become your default search engine. You should abstain from using it because you may encounter numerous sponsored links. Most of these ads may lack any slogan that informs you they are included artificially. The adware also may inject eye-catching pop-ups, banners and videos in the pages. They may seize a significant part of the screen, which may become annoying. Moreover, the multimedia ads may lead to functionality issues like freezes or speed drops. You should be vigilant if you want to explore the vouchers and deals because some of them may lead to unsafe pages. The advice of the experts is to delete the Your Vid Converter right away with dedicated security software.
