Have you ever wanted to have an application that would help you stream all of your favorite TV shows right on your browser? FunMediaTab sounds like it could be that application until you realize it is just a third-party program that comes with unwanted consequences. If you happen to have FunMediaTab on-board, you should remove it immediately. Computer security experts say that nothing good can come of this program, and if you care about your personal information’s security, you will see to it that you get rid of all the potential threats without any further ado. In this description, we give you more details about the application and tell you how to uninstall it.

When it comes to such applications, sometimes it is hard to determine whether they are inherently malicious, or they are just victims of unfortunate circumstances. After all, FunMediaTab has an official homepage, and you can easily access it via funmediatab.com. There, by clicking the Free Install button, you can add the application to your browser. This type of installation works on Firefox. For Chrome, you would be redirected to the Chrome Web Store where the application has a page, too. Thus, it might seem that you have encountered the real deal, but that is very far from the truth.

In fact, it is far more likely that this application entered your system in a software package. After all, FunMediaTab comes from the Imali Media family, which includes such browser hijacker as Search.searchinsocial.com, Search.realcoolmoviessearch.com, Search.emaildefendsearch.com, and so on. As you can see, our research team puts this application into the browser hijacker category because it modifies your browser settings without your permission. It will change your new tab and homepage settings to search.funtvpagesearch.com, and all of your search results will be redirected through search.funtvpagesearch.com. This “search engine” will display modified search results from Yahoo! Search.

As you can see, it cannot even provide you with an original search engine, so it is more than obvious that this program is good for nothing. Not to mention that there are at least several similar websites that use the same domain at 108.59.81.209. The websites in question are medianewtab.com, mysafenewpage.com, newtab-tv.com, newtabtv.com, ru-newtab-media.com, safebrowsesearch.com. This shows that FunMediaTab is part of a big network that has been created to generate financial profit. All of the browser hijackers from this group manage to make money by redirecting users to affiliated websites. This type of activity could be dangerous because you can never be sure whether a third-party site you land on is safe or not.

Not to mention that sometimes cyber criminals could make use of the advertising space offered by FunMediaTab to promote their content. Consequently, you could end up getting infected with malware, and any malicious program is far more dangerous than a browser hijacker. You could experience an ultimate system crash, and your financial information could be leaked to cyber criminals, too.

Luckily, you can avoid all that by removing FunMediaTab today. Please follow the instructions below to terminate the application because it cannot be uninstalled via Control Panel. What’s more, you should also scan your PC with a computer security tool of your choice because there might be more unwanted and dangerous programs on-board. Do what is best for your system and its security.
