Sport Score is a piece of software targeted at those computer users who love different types of sports. It promises to enable people to access the scores of various matches, which explains why so many sport lovers download and install this extension themselves. Unfortunately, people usually regret installing this software because it does not act the way it should. Besides, it changes the default search engine and the New Tab page to feed.getsportscore.com. Specialists at 411-spyware.com have noticed that this website will immediately redirect to snap.do, which is considered to be a questionable search provider. To be frank, you might quickly put your system in danger if you use this search engine as your default search provider. We hope that you understand all the risks and decide to start using another search engine. In order to change your default search provider, you will, of course, need to remove the Sport Score extension. Fortunately, it affects only Google Chrome browsers, so it will not take much time to get rid of it.
Researchers have tested the search engine you will see set in the place of your default search engine on Google Chrome after the installation of Sport Score and found that it cannot be trusted because it might show the modified search results that might put your system in danger once you click on any of them. Many users are naïve and say that they will be able to protect their computers from harm by ignoring the search results returned by this search engine when they find out that Sport Score sets an unreliable search tool. To be honest, it would be best to remove it fully and then set a more trustworthy search engine because you will still need a tool for finding the information on the web. As you already know, it is dangerous to use an untrustworthy search engine because it might redirect to a corrupted website; however, believe us, it is definitely not the only reason we suggest getting rid of Sport Score together with the search engine it promotes.
Specialists have found it quite suspicious that the search engine set after the installation of the Sport Score extension will gather not only non-personally identifiable information, but might also record the personal details. Fortunately, this will only happen if you provide the personal information yourself. In most cases, users do that by filling in some kind of form, e.g. with an intention of contacting the customer support. At first, it might seem that it cannot do anything very bad by keeping such details as name, surname, and address; however, you should know that these details might be used for devious plans cyber criminals come up with. Yes, they might purchase this information from the developer of the Sport Score extension. As we have already mentioned, you should remove this potentially unwanted program fully to protect your system from harm.
You should not visit questionable third-party websites and torrent websites, especially do not download software from them because you might unwillingly allow other undesirable programs, including adware, browser hijackers, and other potentially unwanted programs to enter the system. In addition, security experts suggest that you ignore suspicious commercial advertisements you might find on different websites because the download process of undesirable software might be initiated once you click on such an advertisement once. Of course, one day you might also encounter a very serious infection if you have a computer with an Internet connection. Unfortunately, it is very hard to prevent serious threats from entering systems. Therefore, we suggest installing a trustworthy antimalware tool too. As long as you keep it installed and update it periodically, malicious software will not enter your computer.
To fix the settings of your Google Chrome browser, you need to remove the Sport Score extension and then set another webpage as your default search engine and the New Tab page. Of course, it is possible to do that quicker. You simply need to reset your browser to its default settings. Also, we encourage you to use an automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter if you do not have time to get rid of this potentially unwanted program manually or simply do not know where to start.
