Cm Addon is classified as a potentially unwanted application or a browser add-on that functions only with Google Chrome web browser. It cannot come bundled with freeware which means that users install the add-on on their own. The add-on, also known as Cookie Monster, can be found on Chrome web store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cookie-monster/kipjlaljoicekggeiiboefmgmmiadgef. Consequently, it means that you can remove Cm Addon from your browser via Google Chrome settings. However, it would also be a good idea to scan your computer for any potentially unwanted applications that might cause you some trouble.
As far as the add-on itself is concerned, it manifests itself as two pop-up windows that display random (mostly irrelevant) information. For example:
Send me your current cookies for this domain!
ARE YOU AN IDIOT? Google implements an extension interface with NO security model, I can get your cookies from whatever site you are on (these could hold session info or other things). Then I send them to my cookie monster extension. Where I can eat them. Yum! Yum! <…>
Although Cm Addon is not known to be distributed via bundled downloads, it might be related to third party advertisements or various hyperlinks that redirect you to third party affiliated websites. It may also collect cookies that contain your browsing session information and share it with third parties. That is not illegal, but if a malevolent third party makes use of the information collected it could be exploited for marketing and even malware distribution purposes.
Whenever you install a new application or add-on on your computer, you need to take all the security measures into consideration. Any security-minded user would like to know what kind of information an application collects and what it shares the data with. In some cases you might come across pieces of information online saying that Cm Addon is rather useful and you should keep in on your browser. However, if you are not exactly sure of what the add-on is doing, and especially if you do not remember having installed it on your PC – what is the use of keeping it?
What is more, if you are about to remove Cm Addon from your browser, you should also consider scanning your PC with SpyHunter free scanner, because this way you would ensure that there are no other potentially unwanted applications installed on your computer.
