What is Stolen Camera Finder?

Our cyber security experts have recently tested an application called Stolen Camera Finder. They say that this browser extension for Google Chrome enables you to find photos taken with stolen cameras. Hence, this program allows you to contribute to finding someone’s stolen camera. However, you may not find this program all that useful if you are not into finding someone else’s stuff, so you might want to remove it, especially if you got it accidentally somehow. In this article, we will discuss how this application works, how its developers distribute it, and how you can remove it from your browser easily. Please continue reading to find out more.

What does Stolen Camera Finder do?

When you add this extension to Chrome, a pop-up window appears and states the following: “It can: Read and change all your data on the websites you visit.” This statement is someone worrisome but, nevertheless, it does not seem to change any data, at least notably. When you install this program, it adds its icon on the top-left side of the browser window. If you left-click or right-click it, then it will open a drop down menu with options that include Stolen Camera Finder. If you click it, then you will be redirected to this program’s Chrome Web Store page. It has an Options menu, but it is inaccessible. Furthermore, the drop down menu features Remove from Chrome, Hide in Chrome Menu and Manage extensions options that are self-explanatory.

This application can be linked to a website called that is not featured or promoted on this extension. Apparently, most cameras have unique serial numbers that they embed in a photo’s Exif (Exchangeable image file format.) This program claims to use those serial numbers to identify pictures taken with the same camera. This program works in the background. When you browse the web, all of the photos you come across are filtered through Stolen Camera Finder which runs the unique IDs through its database. We have found user reports claiming that this application can slow down Google Chrome quite notably. Also, there were reports that this application caused errors in the browser. The nature of these errors is unknown but, nevertheless, the excising user reports suggest that this application is not all that good.

Where does Stolen Camera Finder come from?

Stolen Camera Finder was created by a company called Matt Burns Ltd. This company is registered in England and Wales, and its registered office is in Bristol.  This company has also created a program called OddPrints. These two releases show that this company focuses on creating software for pictures and images. Alas, nothing else is known about this company. We believe that it is a legitimate company that creates legitimate software, but the usefulness of its software is questionable.

Our researchers have discovered that this browser extension is distributed on the Chrome Web Store only. Hence, you cannot get this program bundled with other software like so many similar extensions. Therefore, you can get Stolen Camera Finder only if you initiate its download yourself. We have not found any other distribution methods except for its website at
