Do you know what Sport Score is?
If you expect a direct access to the scores of our favorite sports matches using Sport Score, you will be disappointed to find this program useless. According to the official information – and it is very limited – this program is meant to showcase scores with a simple shortcut entered into the Chrome search bar, but it does not actually work. In fact, if you end up downloading this extension from the Chrome web store, all you need to do is check the Reviews section to find that users are reporting the same thing. Despite this, there are quite a few users, and it is possible that this potentially unwanted program will spread even more with the help of third-party installers. Maybe you have downloaded the PUP (short for “potentially unwanted program”) using an unfamiliar installer? If you have, it is possible that other PUPs or even malicious infections have slithered into your PC along with it. In any case, you should delete Sport Score.

If you do not remove Sport Score from your operating system right away, this program will spy on you to record your browsing behavior.
