Specialists at have recently informed us about the detection of a new potentially unwanted application – Sumnum. It is a PUP in the form of a Google Chrome browser extension, so only those users whose default browser is Google Chrome will encounter it. Some of them download and install this extension willingly from the web, whereas others cannot explain why this piece of software has appeared in the list of extensions. At the time of writing, it seems that Sumnum is only distributed using deceptive distribution methods and enters users’ PCs without their knowledge because it is no longer possible to get it from its official website – the extension has been removed from the Chrome Web store and, consequently, the Add to Chrome button on its official website is no longer active. Of course, you should remove Sumnum from your Google Chrome browser no matter what is the story behind the installation of this piece of software. You cannot keep it because it is not a trustworthy application that is going to act beneficially on your computer. As research conducted by our experts has shown, it is nothing more than a potentially unwanted program (PUP) which acts in an undesirable way.

The Sumnum description in the add-ons manager contains the following sentence about it – “With 'sumnum' you need to choose the right number so eventually it will get the same sun om each row and coloumn” whereas the information available on its official website tells users that it can provide the “free full access to SPORT TV live games.” No matter that it has two different descriptions, none of them tells the truth about this piece of software. In reality, Sumnum has nothing to do with sports, and it is surely not going to act as a useful program, so there is no point in keeping it active either, especially when its presence might quickly result in problems. Research has revealed that Sumnum has been developed to collect data about users only. It seems that it does not even try to hide this fact because all types of information it is going to record are listed in its Privacy Policy document. First, it gathers technical information, including OS type, location, IP address, Internet Service Provider, and other technical details about the machine it works on. Second, it tracks users and records the so-called usage information, for instance, content users see, websites they visit, links they click, search queries, etc. Last but not least, it collects information linked to social networks, e.g. users’ interactions on them. We would say that it is quite important information, so you should not let this potentially unwanted program record it on your computer. We have only one piece of advice for you – remove Sumnum as soon as possible because this extension might share this information with “certain third parties (including, without limitation, search engines, content providers, and advertising networks and platforms) that provide various services (such as advertising, marketing, analysis, content, and search).” These third parties might be anyone, even disreputable companies, so it is only a question of time when your online privacy will be violated after the information disclosure. You can protect yourself by getting rid of this PUP. Do this today because it might already be too late to think about its removal the other day.

Sumnum has an official website, as has been already mentioned at the beginning of this article. Even though it is no longer possible to download it from there, we are sure that there are users out there who willingly downloaded this piece of software from its official website some time ago. Users usually do not come across this URL accidentally. Instead, they are usually redirected to it against their will from another untrustworthy domain. Since it has already been removed from the Chrome Web store and cannot be downloaded from its official website, it is very likely that the majority of users install it on their PCs by clicking on a pop-up promoting it at present. These pop-ups can be found on untrustworthy pages, or they might keep appearing on your screen because an adware program is actively working on your system. In the latter case, you must delete adware from your computer too.

Follow our instructions you can find below this article to remove this undesirable Google Chrome extension from your computer. It is not dangerous malware, so you should not find its deletion very complicated. If it is exactly what you think about the manual method, delete this PUP without mercy with an automated scanner.
