Where does Home.fastemailaccess.com come from?

It seems that it is more likely to install this browser hijacker under questionable circumstances than from official sources.  A lot of unsuspecting users infect their machine by downloading free files from suspicious file-sharing pages, such as torrent and freeware sites (filewon.com, descargar.es, or malavida.es). It is important to realize that these pages usually promote questionable third-party installers that can pack several malicious software installers on top of a possibly legitimate free program that servers as bait. These bundle installers are mostly set up to be vague and misleading about the real content. Therefore, users may need to select the custom installation option in order to be able to see the list of additional programs and browser setting changes. But sometimes you can only know this information by reading the license agreement carefully. Furthermore, you can also download such a bundle when you click on harmful third-party advertisements and links. This can happen when you land on suspicious websites filled with ads or when your computer is infected with adware. This is why it is essential that after you delete Home.fastemailaccess.com, you use a trustworthy online malware scanner to identify all other threats on board so that you can take action.

In all fairness, we also need to talk a bit about the official channels or rather, channel. We have found that this browser extension is only available for download at the Chrome web store, chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/fast-email-access-new-tab/cimjffaiphjmepbaodglkpdkejjncoik. Although it seems to have a promotional page at fastemailaccess.com, this page is practically the same as the one you see at Home.fastemailaccess.com. The statistics on the web store page clearly show that you are dealing with a questionable extension as only four people have found it worth installing since March, 2017. All things considered, we believe that it is clear why we advise you to remove Home.fastemailaccess.com.

How does Home.fastemailaccess.com work?

You may not even see the changes this browser hijacker makes on your system because this search engine page sort of resembles Google. The only difference is that this infection has a toolbar at the top of the page. This toolbar provides you with a search tool and a number of buttons that lead to the major web-based e-mail clients (e.g., Hotmail, Gmail, and Yahoo mail) as well as quick links to Facebook and Booking.com. These links may be reliable and cause no real danger when you click on them; however, using the search function could actually introduce you to questionable third-party content. Your searches are redirected to a manipulated Yahoo search results page that can thus contain potentially unreliable third-party ads and links. This browser extension may also promote third parties through its own advertisements as per its Terms and Conditions, which should always be read before you use any service or application. Since clicking on any ads and links coming from or through this browser hijacker might drop other infections or take you to questionable third-party pages where you could even be scammed if you are not cautious enough, we believe that it is best for you to remove Home.fastemailaccess.com from your browsers as soon as possible.
