File Conversion Now is offered to users who need quick access to websites with tools for converting files from one format to another. However, if you think about installing it, you should know that providing links is not all that this application can do. In fact, it falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs, which means it could have unwanted functionality.  Thus, if you do not want to install a tool and later find out that it is too annoying for you, we recommend learning more about this extension before installing it. If it is already too late and you regret installing this potentially unwanted program, we could help you erase it. Slide a bit below this article, and you should find our deletion instructions that explain how to remove File Conversion Now manually.

The application currently works only on Google Chrome browsers. Users who go to Chrome Web Store might find it there as we can see that the application is available on the platform at the moment of witting. We can also tell that we see a few negative reviews of users who say they hate the extension and recommend against installing it. Thus, it does not seem surprising that the application has a low rating (2 stars out of five). Consequently, the application might not appear attractive to users who find it on the Chrome Web Store. Of course, we do not think it is the only place to obtain it. Like many other potentially unwanted programs, the extension could be spread through file-sharing websites or advertisements. Plus, it has its homepage, which is called fileconversionnow.com. One way or the other, if you do not want to come across similar tools in the future, we advise taking extra precautions when downloading new software. For example, you should make sure that it comes from reputable sources and that it has positive expert and user reviews.

We mentioned earlier that File Conversion Now can provide links to websites that contain file-converting tools and that it is not all that the extension does. To provide the links, the application could change your default homepage, search engine, or new tab page with a website called hp.hfileconversionnow.com. Also, the extension’s website might contain not just links but also a search box that could redirect users to Yahoo. Our researchers say that the potentially unwanted program could be using a modified version of Yahoo, which is why the results displayed after using hp.hfileconversionnow.com might be altered; for example, they could include additional advertisements. It is vital to be aware that the extension may also require permission to view your browsing history. Therefore, File Conversion Now might be able to gather data like your visited websites, used keywords, and so on. Such data could be used for various purposes, including generating tailored advertisements. We do not say that this extension will necessarily show targeted ads, but it is possible that it could.

If all things considered, the application does not look as useful as you thought it would be or you think it could annoy you, we advise looking for a different tool. If you already installed it and want to erase it, you have a couple of options. First, you could delete File Conversion Now manually. If you need any guidance while doing it, you could use the instructions located below this text. The second option is to get a reliable security tool that would detect and erase File Conversion Now.
