What is Sport Score?
Sport Score is a suspicious program that you are most likely to download bundled with other programs. We assume this because it is unlikely that many users will seek out this program purposefully and view it as a beneficial tool. The official download page, getsportscore.com, is useful only because of the links to the “Terms” and “Privacy” documents represented via it. In fact, even the download link redirects to chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/sports-score/flgldhokbahffkebmfldneocfccfceka. The information on this Chrome web store page is not exactly helpful either. Sure, the download link works, but it is still unclear how this program works. If you click the “Add to Chrome” button, you are greeted with a pop-up asking to confirm the addition, and this pop-up warns that the program can read and change both your browsing history and your data on the sites you visit. On top of that, the pop-up warns that your search settings will be changed to feed.getsportscore.com. Needless to say, we recommend removing Sport Score due to this activity, and we discuss this in the report.
How does Sport Score work?
Another reason to delete the PUP is the activation of feed.getsportscore.com. This suspicious search tool actually redirects to search.snapdo.com by Resoft or search.safefinder.com by Linkury. These are the search engines you are likely to face as you open the New Tab (it might be set as the startup page) and use the default search engine. Neither of these search tools is trustworthy and search.snapdo.com, for example, is even capable of showing ads on its home page. If you use these search engines to look up information or sites, you will be exposed to sponsored links/advertisements as well. Regular search results will be shown, but ads will take the main spot. If you do not want to be exposed to modified results, these are not the search tools you can trust. If you end up interacting with the ads shown via them, you might be exposed to scams and unreliable websites, so be careful.
How to delete Sport Score
Sport Score is a suspicious extension that appears to have been created for two reasons, which are to show advertisements and to introduce you to an unreliable search provider that can expose you to ads as well.
