What is Movie Mode?
Movie Mode is an advertising-supported application that is promoted as a tool that will help you watch videos online in a movie mode. The application is supposed to dim down everything around the video thus creating the so-called movie mode. The value of a program like that already does not seem extremely high, but after you will see what other features it has you will certainly want to get rid of Movie Mode.
The program was developed by GenTechnologies Apps LLC and seems to be practically identical to Websteroids and ShareAnything, which are also adware applications. Movie Mode is compatible with all popular browsers. It has an official page at moviemodeapp.com, but is usually bundled with freeware programs like New Player and others. We recommend to delete Movie Mode from your PC.
How does Movie Mode work?
Just like any other adware application Movie Mode presents you tons of ads, pop-ups and banners. It may also add sponsored links to your search results. If that was not bad enough, these ads may not be completely safe. Although on the official page of the program it is stated that Movie Mode is 100% safe and secure that is clearly not true. Movie Mode may not be malicious itself, but it does expose you to unnecessary security risks such as false advertisements that promote malware and fake lotteries. These virtual scams can be used to steal your personal information and infect your PC with potentially unwanted or even malicious software.
It is very likely that you did not download Movie Mode yourself, but rather got stuck with the program because it came with another freeware or shareware application. When you install third-party software you need to pay more attention to the installation process. Choose Custom Installation whenever it is possible and deselect all unfamiliar programs. That way you will only install what you need.
