The Affirmativo is a doubtful browser extension that could limit Google Chrome users' access to particular web pages. It is the main reason why the application was classified as a potentially unwanted program. If you continue reading the article, we will explain to you how the software works and how it can affect your browsing experience. Since we do not think it has the means to enhance it, we advise users not to waste any time with this potentially unwanted program and get rid of it at once. To help users remove it faster, our researchers have prepared recommended deletion steps available below the article, so if you decide you do not wish to keep The Affirmativo, feel free to use these steps. In case you have more questions or require more assistance keep it in mind you can write a comment below the article too.

The add-on had an official web page, but it is no longer available. Our researchers say it was also distributed through the Google Chrome Web Store page where it was known by the following ID number: fcepmpemlpoocmfeaapoakhbfofgkknc. Despite this, we believe the potentially unwanted program is still being distributed. Aside from the mentioned sources, it could be spread with irritating pop-up ads, bundled software installers, and so on. Thus, you may have to be more cautious in the future if you wish to keep your system clean from suspicious applications like The Affirmativo. However, if you do not think being cautious is sufficient enough, and you tend to receive unreliable software from time to time it might be better to use a trustworthy antimalware tool that could identify threats for you and stop them from entering the system or help the user erase them.

After it is added The Affirmativo should appear on the Google Chrome’s list of installed extensions available if you click Altf+F, select More tools and choose Extensions. There you should see a short description saying something like “hide your browsing records from the prying eye of ISP’s.” Our specialists say there was a similar description on the Chrome Web Store page before the potentially unwanted program was removed from there. In any case, we doubt the application works accordingly to its description. The only thing we noticed after testing it ourselves is that the add-on can redirect user through various web pages after he inserts a search query and then show him modified Yahoo search results. Usually, applications like The Affirmativo can inject the results with annoying third-party advertisements or other unwanted content, but this program seems to hide some of it. Apparently, it filters out any results that include word “Trump.” As a consequence, users might be unable to access some of the websites if they have content with the mentioned word.

Naturally, if you want to decide what web pages you can or cannot visit on your own, we would recommend erasing this potentially unwanted program as fast as possible. It may not be malicious, but it certainly works in a suspicious manner. Not to mention researchers not only doubt its reliability, but also consider it to be useless. If you think you can remove it manually, we encourage you to have a look at our recommended deletion steps available below this text. For users who do not want to waste their time by eliminating it manually or find the task a bit too complicated we could suggest installing a reliable security tool instead. Such a tool could help users erase The Affirmativo more easily. Plus, it would clean up the system from other suspicious applications at the same time, and if you keep the antimalware tool up to date, it could even guard the system against future threats.
