What is eFast?
If you are bored with your old, predictable web browsers, you might look for an alternative, and eFast is one of them. This suspicious browser was built using the Chromium engine, which is why it resembles Google Chrome. If this popular, widely used browser was installed onto your PC prior to installing the one created by Clara-Labs (CLARALABSOFTWARE), it will be disabled automatically. Our researchers here at Anti-Spyware-101.com have found that the suspicious, potentially unwanted program can eliminate the shortcuts to Chrome found on your desktop and start menu. On top of that, the strange Chromium-based browser might be set as the default browser. Needless to say, you should remove eFast as soon as you realize that this program has way too many privileges and not enough beneficial services.
How does eFast work?
Although eFast looks like a regular web browser, it is not very reliable. Just like BoBrowser, Unico Browser, Sidebar Dock, and other similar web browsers, it displays advertisements, which is our greatest concern. Fortunately, the ads associated with this strange PUP are unlikely to cross over to other web browsers. Nonetheless, if you use the browser – which is something you are likely to do if you install this program – you will be exposed to third-party advertisements, primarily on shopping websites. Luckily, these ads will come with an identifying tag, "Ad by efast_browser." Although we do not recommend interacting with any ads, you should be especially careful with these advertisements. We could not find a website representing this browser, which makes it completely unpredictable. If this website existed, we might have more information about the parties related to these ads; however, we do not.
The fact that eFast does not have a website to represent it might seem irrelevant to you; however, this must be discussed. If you did not install this strange application from an official source, where did you install it from? Our best guess is that you downloaded it via a bundle carrying other programs. Are these programs active on your PC? Can you trust them? Even if the software associated with the PUP looks harmless, you have to inspect to be sure. Run a trusted malware scanner, and you will know which programs are reliable and which ones require removal in no time.
How to delete eFast
We recommend removing eFast because instead of providing beneficial services, this program shows potentially unreliable advertisements and spies using different data-tracking technologies. Of course, this potentially unwanted program is not a major threat, and it is up to you to decide what you want to do with it. We are much more concerned about the fate of malware that could have slithered in along with this PUP. Since not many computer users have experience, we suggest automatic removal as a universal solution. Once you install a trustworthy security tool, you will not need to worry about malware or the protection of your operating system. Have more questions?
