What is Fast and Safe?
Fast and Safe is an ad-supported program that is the reason you see commercial adverts on your computer screen. Once it gets installed on your system, you will not be able to avoid it as it is compatible with all popular web browsers. Fast and Safe is similar to other programs of this type like Bprotector, Sprotector and more. The application was created by Globaldev and is associated with WebSearch browser hijackers.
Fast and Safe comes bundled with freeware and shareware and it is quite possible that you did not even notice the program being installed. Adware has no benefits whatsoever and should not be kept on a computer. Therefore we recommend you delete Fast and Safe.
How does Fast and Safe work?
Fast and Safe runs in the background and in some cases you may not be aware of its presence. However, the program has its folders in ProgramData and ALLUSERPROFILE directories. Fast and Safe also creates the following services: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\64af91bf and SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services\64af91bf. If you have found these folders in your computer it means the application has been successful installed and is now monitoring your Internet habits in order to provide you with personalized ads. If you are not sure how you got stuck with Fast and Safe you should keep in mind that it is distributed via bundled downloads. If you install freeware or shareware onto your PC you may end up with potentially unwanted programs. Next time be sure to check Advanced Installation and deselect all unfamiliar or unnecessary software.
The reason we suggest you uninstall Fast and Safe is because, contrary to its name, the program is not that safe. You may be exposed to fake ads or pop-ups that contain false information. If you click on one of the ads created by cyber criminals you could land on a corrupted website and infect your computer with malware. You could also be tricked into sharing your personal details. This could lead to serious financial consequences.
