The last thing you want to do is install something useless, and that is one of the reasons we do not advise installing 365Stream. This extension is compatible with Google Chrome, and it appears to be capable of modifying your browser’s settings. Due to this, some users might mistakenly identify it as a browser hijacker. Instead, it is a potentially unwanted program (PUP), and there are a few reasons for that. First and foremost, this application is useless. Second, it changes the default search provider. Third, it redirects to Yahoo Search to show sponsored content. The results are modified. Finally, the PUP can track information about, record your browsing history, and share some of this data with undisclosed third parties. These are the reasons you should delete 365Stream, and one reason should be plenty enough to realize that it is not reliable. So, are you interested in the removal of this potentially unwanted program?
365Stream could be distributed using unreliable bundled downloaders. Of course, it can be downloaded in a less questionable way as well. In fact, it is available on the Chrome web store, and you can find it at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/365stream/fgnblmibfljldcmglopklipacjjmjije. The website linked to the Chrome web store installer (365-stream.com) does not offer an official installer. This website is just a video platform that you can use to find low-quality videos. The funny thing is that the extension and the website have no apparent connections. The website shows videos, and the extension changes the default search provider on Chrome. That is all that it can do. Unfortunately, it changes the provider to Yahoo Search, which many users might deem reliable. The thing is that 365Stream modifies the results that are delivered via this search engine, and, of course, trusting them is extremely risky. For all we know, you could end up being scammed if you interact with the seemingly normal results. Also, remember that the PUP records browsing history, and so the results could be personalized to trick you into interacting with them.
You should not put up with useless and unreliable programs or extensions because life is too short for that, and your virtual security is way too precious for that also. Whenever you install new programs and extensions, you have to research them thoroughly before you hit the download/install/add button. If you continue to be careless, next time you could let in a much more dangerous threat.
