Funfeedr is supposed to be a Mozilla Firefox browser extension that displays the “hottest content on the web” on a scrollable bar at the bottom your screen, but, instead, it functions as an adware application. As a matter of fact, this add-on is rather limited for use if we consider that it only installs in Firefox, but the latest versions do not even let you use it as it is not verified. Who would want such a useless browser extension anyway? Its function can be unreliable, but, what is worse, it might expose you to unsafe third-party content, too. But that is not all. Please read our full article to get the details and to learn how you can remove Funfeedr in order to protect your operating system.

Funfeedr has a very simple website at funfeedr.com. If you open it with Google Chrome or Internet Explorer, you can simply download the Funfeedr.xpi file and nothing really happens. However, if you download it with a newer version of Mozilla Firefox, it will warn you that you are about to install an unverified add-on and you can proceed at your own risk. Well, that does not sound too promising. But, even if you risk it and go on with the installation, it will not work. When you check this extension in the add-ons list, Firefox will tell you that “this add-on could not be verified for use.” That is rather suspicious and only means that you really do not need such a shady extension to reside on your computer.

But that is not the only questionable thing about Funfeedr. It is not enough that it does not feed any “fun” at all, it can actually feed your computer with some other malware infections. This adware is just like any other, it is mainly distributed in freeware bundles with other infections. If you happen to install such a questionable software package, prepare for the worst unless you remember to deselect the unwanted apps during the installation. If you are not careful enough, it may result in a number of different malware infections running amok on your PC. Deleting Funfeedr may be the least of your worries in such a case.

Funfeedr is supposed to add a small button in the bottom-right corner of your browser. If you click on it, you will see a bar of thumbnails providing easy-access links to the “hot stuff” of the web, including celebrity gossip, music, sports, health, travel, TV and movies, comics, and more. We have found that this is an unreliable service and may not even show anything. Instead, this adware may start to show third-party advertisements. Another worrisome factor is that Funfeedr can collect both non-personal and personally identifiable information about you, which may also be shared with third parties. This is what the Privacy Policy says about this:

By using our FunFeedr services, you approve our sharing or transferring of information, including Personal Information, internally, within our group of companies…

If you do not want to be exposed to cyber criminals or any kind of online scam, you had better get rid of Funfeedr ASAP.

The only good thing about this adware application is, in fact, that it can be removed very easily. It does not have an uninstaller, so the Control Panel method is out of the question in this case. Instead, you can simply get rid of the extension in Firefox and that is all there is to it. That should not take more than a minute, including reading our instructions below. Do not forget that you can prevent infections from infiltrating your system. Either you stick to some basic rules of surfing or install a reliable antimalware program to protect your computer automatically.
