Login Faster is tightly related with a browser hijacker called Search.searchlff.com since after installing the application it might replace your new tab page, search engine, or homepage with it. Given it promotes such an unreliable search engine we do not think it is wise to keep the extension on the browser. The application is currently compatible with Google Chrome, although it might be updated to work on other popular browsers like Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer too. Our researchers say it could be distributed through annoying pop-ups that ask to add the extension. If you encountered Login Faster with the help of such pop-ups as well and installed it without researching whether the software is safe to use, we advise you to read the rest of our report and learn more about it. Also, if you later decide not to risk the computer’s security and eliminate the threat, you could use the deletion instructions located below the text.

Login Faster might be advertised as a tool that could help you login to your email faster. Less experienced users could fall for such a trick, but you probably realize by now that there is no magical way to login to your email faster than loading the site providing it and inserting login information. Of course, you can make your browser memorize the password or chose to stay signed in all the time through your email options, but these options are given by the browser or email, not by some suspicious third-party application. In reality, Login Faster should simply create an additional toolbar below the address bar with Gmail or other popular email providers' icons. Needless to say, you can create same icons by bookmarking the email site through your browser options. Therefore, again you do not need to install any extension for that.

At this point, you may wonder why would anyone create such a useless tool. Based on our experience with similar threats, we would say the application’s creators are probably trying to gather advertising revenue. As we stated earlier, the plugin might replace specific browser preferences and introduce you to Search.searchlff.com; a search engine categorized as a browser hijacker. We had already researched this search tool some time ago and like we said in the browser hijacker’s report there is a chance it could be showing modified Yahoo search results. It means the results you receive might include suspicious advertising content, for example, third-party banners, pop-ups, sponsored links, etc. Users should know there are no guarantees such content would be necessarily reliable. In such case, it could endanger the system or your privacy, while the software’s creators could be benefiting from your clicks.

Naturally, we do not recommend taking any chances with Login Faster and the suspicious search engine it encourages you to use. If you seek to get rid of these applications as fast as possible, we recommend using a reliable security tool. More experienced users could also try the deletion instructions located below this paragraph. They will show you how to restore the possibly modified browser’s settings and how to erase the questionable extension.
