Users install FastFormFinder on their computers from the official Chrome Web Store expecting that they could access government forms (e.g. tax forms and citizenship forms) with the single click as promised. Some users find this piece of software beneficial, but if you ask us, we do not think that it is extremely beneficial because it only sets a page that contains websites that can be accessed without its help. If you have not found it very useful, but you have already installed it on your computer, you should erase it from the system as soon as possible. Luckily, FastFormFinder is just a potentially unwanted application that can be deleted from the system without difficulty. Potentially unwanted applications are not harmful threats, but they cannot be called fully reliable software too. Usually, it turns out that they have several drawbacks. It will be easier for you to decide whether or not it is worth keeping FastFormFinder installed on the system after you read this report from beginning to the very end.

FastFormFinder will apply changes to your browsers once installed on the system. It has turned out that it is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, so you will find a new homepage set on all these web browsers. The page promoted by this potentially unwanted application has a search box, quick-access buttons that open YouTube, Amazon, Gmail, and other popular websites, and, finally, you will find a toolbar with buttons leading to websites containing government forms. As mentioned, you could access all those websites even if FastFormFinder was not installed on your computer. Speaking about the promoted search provider, it might show some modified search results. These search results open websites that do not contain any information associated with the entered search query. We are sure that FastFormFinder will also record all search queries you enter and websites you open. Additionally, it will automatically obtain some details about your computer, including your IP address, the web browser you use, the type of Windows OS your computer runs on, etc. Theoretically, it might share all recorded details with third parties too, but since these are not personally-identifiable details, you should not experience any privacy-related problems. Of course, if you do not think that it is very smart to let suspicious software collect information, you should remove FastFormFinder right away without further consideration.

Some users download FastFormFinder directly from the Chrome Web Store; however, not all users can explain why they have this potentially unwanted application installed on their computers, so, according to specialists at 411-spyware.com, it is very likely that it is also distributed via software bundles. Most probably, it is one of several components the software bundle contains, so it is not surprising at all that users agree with the installation of the entire bundle and thus end up with FastFormFinder. Potentially unwanted applications are not harmful threats for sure, but we are you would not want to find new software installed on your computer without your conscious permission again. Therefore, we want to encourage you to install security software. If it gets all the newest updates and you keep it active on your system, suspicious applications will not enter your system without your knowledge ever again.

We should accentuate it again – FastFormFinder is not real malware; however, it would be a sin to keep it installed if you have found it completely useless, or it has been installed on your computer without your knowledge. It will not be difficult to delete it at all if you follow instructions provided below. They will help you to remove this potentially unwanted application manually. If you do not have time for erasing applications yourself, you can use an automated malware remover to take care of FastFormFinder instead. Since so many malicious applications pretend to be reliable malware removers, you cannot download the first scanner found on a random website.
