What is FilmsApp Home?

FilmsApp Home is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that is far from a genuine computer infection. Users often add this application to their Chrome browser without realizing that it could perform unwanted modifications. Later on, they think that FilmsApp Home is a malicious intruder that can damage their system, but that is the truth. In fact, you can easily remove this extension from your system, and it is actually additional programs that might cause trouble. So scanning your computer with a licensed antispyware tool is extremely important. Do not leave that out just because the extension looks like not much of a big deal.testtest

Where does FilmsApp Home come from?

This browser extension belongs to a group of similar plug-ins that can be downloaded from There are at least three other extensions that can be added to your browser from the official website. And since that “Add to Chrome” button works, it would be too farfetched to say that the application is a malicious infection. When a program has an official website and it actually works, the worst we can assume about that particular program is that it is potentially unwanted.

What’s more, you can also find FilmsApp Home at the Chrome Web Store. That is actually a rather misleading piece of fact because there are quite a few potentially unwanted programs that can be found at the Chrome Web Store. So the point is that even if the program is available at the official app store that is no guarantee that the program will be reliable.

And when it comes to the PUP distribution, the official channels obviously are not the only routes that can be used to promote them. And the most common way for a potentially unwanted program to enter your system is to come bundled with freeware. It means that you install FilmsApp Home yourself when you download some program from a file-sharing website. It also emphasizes how important it is to remain attentive when you download new software from third-party sources. Do not skip the installation wizard steps just because they look default. By skipping them, you lose the chance to avoid adding this extension to your browser.

What does FilmsApp Home do?

Judging from the information provided by the official website, this application is supposed to help you find the latest movies out there. However, when we read that description we have a question immediately. Why should we use a third-party application to look for the newest films when we can simply use the usual search engine?

If that were not enough, FilmsApp Home also modifies your browser’s settings when it enters your system. The program changes your default homepage, and it may also mean that it employs tracking cookies to collect information on your web browsing habits. It is a very common practice among freeware applications. They usually gather such data because they need to figure out your likes and preferences. Once they know that, they can generate custom commercial content you would be more willingly to click.

And of course, that is the main security issue with these extensions. Who can guarantee that FilmsApp Home will expose you to reliable content? No one, actually. And if cyber criminals exploit the extension to promote their content, you could be just a click away from a severe malware infection.

Of course, a malware infection is the worst-case scenario, and that probably will not happen (at least not immediately). But if you have FilmsApp Home and you did not want to add this extension to your browser, it is for the best to remove it.
