VGrabber is a video converter which is available at vgrabber.com. Many Windows users have decided to install this application onto their personal computers because it is free and promises to convert any video file into any chosen format. Even though the program is not considered malicious and legitimate security tools will not delete it automatically, it could endanger your virtual security. As you may know already, most video converters are illegal and their activity is highly questionable. Should you delete VGrabber from the PC? Continue reading to learn why you should remove the application.

As research shows, VGrabber uses web cookies to track information about your online activities. It is highly questionable why the developers of a video converter need to retrieve data about what sites you visit or what your IP address is. Here is how this activity is augmented within the Privacy Policy:

We use Cookies to obtain information about the preferences of our Visitors and the services they select. We also use Cookies for security purposes to protect our Authorized Customers.

If the collected information is not guarded securely, it could be targeted by schemers, which, needless to say, is extremely dangerous. This is the main reason why you should not trust VGrabber if it was dropped onto your PC via freeware or through third-party software distributors, including Conduit Ltd. This version of the application is presented as a community toolbar, just like MIXI.DJ Toolbar or Eazel Toolbar, and is available from vgrabber.ourtoolbar.com. Once you download the program from this source, you may notice modified browser settings, leading to seemingly aggravated VGrabber removal.

If you have installed the application from the official source, it should be enough to delete it from the computer (Step 1). Regardless, if you notice browser modifications, please follow Step 2 as well in order to have VGrabber removed for good.
