What is 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 ( or the Chrome Web Store ( 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.

What does filmsNow Search do?

filmsNow Search is promoted as “the best source for films, TV and celebrity content,” but, frankly speaking, we have some doubts about its usefulness because it does not do anything except for setting a new default search tool. Since this extension is compatible with Google Chrome only, it will change default settings of this only browser. This piece of software is not considered a browser hijacker because users are informed that it will change their browsers’ settings. Of course, not all of them read software descriptions before installing them. Also, users who do not know anything about its installation do not have a chance to find out how it acts as well. If you have already found filmsNow Search installed and your default search tool changed, you should not use the new tool to perform web searches because the chances are high that it will provide you with the modified search results because it redirects all the searches to first before it displays Yahoo! search results. These modified search results are not malicious, but they might still cause problems to you because they might take you to untrustworthy pages. We do not say that all users will definitely end up on these dubious websites, but this might happen at any time.

If you keep filmsNow Search active, it will collect some information about you actively. Most likely, it will gather non-personally identifiable information that could tell more about your habits and interests. Also, it should automatically record some details about your computer. Last but not least, it might provide you with links that belong to third parties (read its Privacy Policy to find more). These links will open other websites whose privacy policies will be completely different, so you should be very cautious if you decide not to remove filmsNow Search from your system.

Where does filmsNow Search come from?
