Are you interested in streaming music for free? If you are, installing StreamFrenzy might seem like a great idea, but it is not. You are likely to be introduced to this potentially unwanted program via a pop-up that could be shown on any website. The installer of this PUP could also be used by unreliable software distributors, who could use a relatively attractive extension to open a backdoor for malicious infections. Obviously, if malware slithers into your operating system along with the add-on, you need to remove it as soon as possible. Hopefully, that is not something you need to worry about, and you can focus on deleting StreamFrenzy. Why should you eliminate this extension? If that is not yet clear to you, we invite you to read this report. Our research team has prepared it after thoroughly researching it in the internal lab. If you come up with any questions when reading, the comments section is open, and you are more than welcome to use it for communication.

If you have not downloaded StreamFrenzy via suspicious sources or along with other malicious and unwanted programs, it is most likely that you found it via the Chrome web store. Right now, the PUP is available at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/streamfrenzy/dkeihdiajpenlodoaffemeajmmcilgji. A link to this installer is also promoted via streamfrenzy.com. If you acquire the suspicious extension via this source, you are informed about the risks you would be taking. The PUP can track your browsing activity, which means that data trackers are installed along with it. Furthermore, it is suggested that the data shown on the visited websites can be modified, which means that StreamFrenzy could replace certain content, and that is a very unpredictable practice. Hopefully, most users will remove this PUP as soon as they realize that it does not work in a beneficial way. Instead of streaming music – which is something you might expect – it presents a search tool via which you are supposed to find music on your own. Basically, it is just a search tool, and it serves no real purpose. Unfortunately, the search service is not reliable either, and so the PUP is completely useless.

Do not be mistaken by the “enhanced by Google” tag that is placed next to the search field shown by StreamFrenzy. Google has nothing to do with the search results that you are exposed to via search.mysearch.com. Sure, the majority of the results could be taken from this search engine, but the parties behind the PUP (APN, LLC and Linkury) are responsible for injecting sponsored links. These could be associated with malware and scams, or route you to random pages that have nothing to do with your search queries. These are the risks that the users of Screen Addict, Muzik Fury, MySportTab, and other potentially unwanted programs need to be cautious about too. The users of these PUPs – which should be removed, of course – also need to be careful about data trackers that might be employed to spy and send data to third parties to help them approach users with more attractive offers and links. You can delete StreamFrenzy data trackers by clearing the browsing data, and the instructions you can see below include the steps showing how to do it.

Why have you downloaded StreamFrenzy? Most likely, because you expected it to work in a useful way. Since this potentially unwanted program fails at serving usefully, you should delete it immediately. On top of that, the PUP can expose you to unpredictable search results using the good name of Google, and so you also want to remove StreamFrenzy for the sake of your own security too. As mentioned previously, other programs could have entered your system attached to this PUP, and they could be malicious. If you are not sure if your system is infected, inspect it with a malware scanner. Should you discover multiple threats, do not hesitate to utilize an anti-malware tool that will automatically clean your operating system for you. Another option is to clean the system manually. If you are experienced, and you have the time to research and delete every threat yourself, go ahead, but do not forget about installing anti-malware software for protection.
