Stream-me is a browser extension that is said should help users “Stay updated with the latest news and trends of the world television.” Users should keep it in mind that the application does not stream any content itself. Apparently, this browser extension only provides a search engine through which a user might be able to find TV content he wants to stream. Another thing users who encounter this application should know is that it falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs. You can find more information about this extension further in this report. Our researchers have also prepared manual deletion instructions located at the end of the article that show how to eliminate Stream-me step by step. If you have any questions after reading our text or need help with the potentially unwanted programs removal, do not hesitate to leave us a message in the comments section.

One of the places where you can find and download Stream-me is the Chrome Web Store page. You will not find it on similar sites of other browsers because, so far, the extension is compatible only with Google Chrome. Another website that contains its installer is the potentially unwanted program’s official site called feed.stream-me.com. Besides these two pages, we suspect the application could be distributed through bundled software installers and pop-up advertisements.

As you see, a lot of potentially unwanted programs are spread with bundled installers available on unreliable file-sharing websites. Naturally, if you do not want to receive such software, we highly recommend staying away from torrent web pages and sites alike. Also, you should be more attentive when downloading and installing new tools. Each application should be carefully researched and obtained from reputable sources. For more protection, we advise installing a reliable security tool that could recognize suspicious programs for you.

This browser extension does not provide any streaming content, even though its title might suggest otherwise. Stream-me provides a search engine to allow its users to search for streaming content on the Internet. No doubt, you can find such material with any search engine if you know how to look for it, which is easy. You only need to write a show's or a movie’s title and add “stream” to your search engine’s search box and click Enter.

However, if you search with the potentially unwanted program’s provided search tool, you should know it could display modified Yahoo search results. Modified means the application could insert additional content, such as third-party advertisements, to them. It is quite possible you could see tailored ads since the Stream-me Privacy Policy says the extension can gather information related to a user’s browsing and use it for recommending material based on a user’s interests.

Also, you should know that the application asks for permissions like “Read your browsing history” and “Manage your apps, extensions, and themes.” If you do not like the idea the application needs such permissions/could show targeted ads or do not find it useful, we recommend removing Stream-me.

The instructions located below show how to delete Stream-me step by step. The task is not particularly complicated, but if you think it is difficult, or you prefer erasing potentially unwanted programs with antimalware tools, we advise employing a reliable security tool of your choice.
