QuizFunWow Extension is all about quizzes, as its name shows. It promises to give users access to “an exciting portal that offers online quizzes and more,” so we are sure some people install this piece of software consciously. If you have installed it from https://quizfunwow.com/quiz/?sid=05302018_organic too, there is a huge possibility that you have installed the Search Manager extension alongside. We know that it is capable of changing browsers’ settings without permission, so do not be surprised if you find your default search tool altered. We can assure you that it is not QuizFunWow Extension fault. Its official website is not the only place users can get it from, as research conducted by our experienced specialists has shown. Users can get it directly from the Chrome Web Store too. Also, it might be installed on users’ computers without their knowledge as well. No matter how QuizFunWow Extension has entered your system, you should know that it is the same potentially unwanted application in all the cases. Actually, it is the reason we do not recommend installing it on the system. In case you have already installed this browser extension, it would be best that you disable it because it might act in an undesirable way. You will see for yourself what we are talking about if you keep QuizFunWow Extension active for some time.

Even though QuizFunWow Extension really makes it possible to access online quizzes and you have found it quite useful, it does not mean that it is a very good idea to keep this extension active, especially if you do not know anything about its installation on your computer. We say so because it has turned out that this piece of software has several drawbacks that make it a potentially unwanted application. First, it might start showing advertisements on your screen: “This extension displays advertisements while you surf the web.” It is said that these commercials are shown to users to keep the application free, which does not sound like something bad; however, you have a right to know one thing about them – these advertisements might lead you to untrustworthy or even malicious websites. You will be redirected to a third-party page even if you click on the advertisement accidentally. All these ads might even diminish your browsing experience since they will be displayed to you when you browse the Web. Most likely, QuizFunWow Extension will start showing targeted advertisements only when it records enough information about you. We have checked its Privacy Policy document for you, and now we can say with confidence that it will record your IP address, cookies, browser type, operating system, network type, and some other details about your habits, activities, and interests. We cannot promise that all these recorded details will not be shared with anyone.

QuizFunWow Extension can be installed directly from the Chrome Web Store or its official website (https://quizfunwow.com/) that redirects to https://quizfunwow.com/quiz/?sid=05302018_organic; however, our specialists are 100% sure that this browser extension is distributed in a different way as well because there are too many users claiming that QuizFunWow Extension has been installed on their computers without their knowledge. According to our specialists, it is very likely that this potentially unwanted application also travels bundled. In addition, it might be spread via pop-ups and advertisements, according to them. That is, users might see pop-ups/ads pushing them into installing this piece of software. They are usually displayed to users when they open dubious websites. It is not always easy to recognize untrustworthy software because it usually looks decent, but there is still a way to prevent suspicious software from entering the system easily – enable a trustworthy antimalware tool on your computer.

You need to delete QuizFunWow Extension from all your affected browsers to stop the flow of ads and put an end to all other activities this potentially unwanted program performs. If you have never erased any extension, follow our step-by-step instructions. If you wish to delete it quicker, you can use an automated malware remover.
