Do you know what Fastoplayer is?
Fastoplayer is an adware program, which means that the application enters your computer just to generate profit for its developers. Whatever function it might be bragging about, it is not worth your attention. Everything is just a scam devised to trick you into thinking that Fastoplayer is a useful browser add-on, and thus you must have it. What you really must do, however, is remove Fastoplayer from your browser because in the long run it would not be surprising if this application was exploited by malevolent third parties. In other words, you have to do it to protect your computer from harm.
This program affects only the Firefox browser, as it is a Firefox add-on. It does not have an official website, so users do not download it directly. The most common method of distribution for such programs is software packaging. It means that Fastoplayer comes bundled with adware and malware programs that users download from file-sharing websites, or the downloading is initiated automatically when users click on corrupted pop-ups. In other words, Fastoplayer might be the least of your concern, and if you decide to delete this application (which you should definitely do), you must also detect other potential threats this add-on arrived with.
If one could call it like that, the good thing about this browser add-on is that it does not try to hide its presence like most of the genuine computer infections. You will know quite soon that you have a new extension on your browser because Fastoplayer will start showing coupon offers and other random pop-ups. The pop-ups may open new pages associated with online advertising. For instance, the pop-up domains used by Fastoplayer include wealthinaweek.co, 30-day-change.com, cmn.com-notify.com, and so on. Most of the pop-ups offer you to make a lot of money in a short period of time while others try to push you into purchasing some goods for a, supposedly, lower price.Fastoplayer screenshot
