filmsNow Search

filmsNow Search

filmsNow Search is a piece of software that promises to help users find movies, celebrity content, and much more. It does look like a piece of software that can be trusted fully at first glance, so we are sure there are users who download it from its homepage (http://www.medianetnow.com/) or the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/filmsnow-search/pcflcdabljbmaodkpkpbepfihonpegjc) willingly. Specifically speaking, there are 164 279 users who have installed this piece of software from the Chrome Web Store, which suggests that it is quite popular. Unfortunately, we have to upset all those users, including you – filmsNow Search is not exactly what it seems to be. Specialists have even decided to classify it as a potentially unwanted program because it might cause problems to users. No, it is not a harmful malicious application, but we cannot call it reliable software either, so you should install another program instead of it. If you have already installed it on your computer, or it has affected your Google Chrome browser without your knowledge, you can remove it at any time. We suggest that you do this sooner rather than later. The next paragraph will tell you more about this browser extension and why it is considered untrustworthy. Read more »
