Do you know what WebPlayer is?
WebPlayer is an application which is meant to enable free streaming of your favorite shows as well as live streaming of such French TV channels as Canal+ or France 4. Needless to say, the program is targeted at those Windows users who speak French and who probably live in France. This is why there is no surprise that the program runs web cookies which may help reveal your IP address. The official website for the application is webplayer.tv, and this is where you are supposed to download the program from. Even though the download links are currently inactive, there could be other sources offering the application. You may need to delete WebPlayer if you have downloaded it from unreliable sources and various undesirable applications got installed alongside without your notice. Have you downloaded the application from its official source, and now you wish to remove it? Then continue reading to learn how.
Video streaming applications are often unreliable and are closely linked to virtual scams, adware or personal data collection. To a certain extent, WebPlayer works in the exact same manner. As it has been discovered, this application installs cookies to track your virtual activity and is affiliated to third parties who easily could present you with promotional content. Have you discovered online advertisements popping up more frequently after installing the application onto your personal computer? This is not surprising, and we warn that clicking on the displayed adverts could expose certain system vulnerabilities. Note that the displayed adverts do not follow the same privacy policies as WebPlayer, which is why they should not be trusted blindly. In general, the video streaming program is not considered to be critically dangerous; however, if you do not find the presented services beneficial – delete it.
