What is SpeeditApp?

SpeeditApp is a browser add-on that belongs to the adware and potentially unwanted program (PUP) category. It's a clone to SpeedApp, SpeedCheck, SpeedCheckMe, SpeedCheckApp and many other. Not only these programs are promoted in the same way, but even their official websites are identical. The only difference is the name of the program. That's a sign that all of these programs are not fair. Speaking about SpeeditApp, beware that it is mainly used for affiliate marketing and is set to deliver sponsored advertisements for people. It can work on all most popular web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Consequently, if it gets inside a computer, each of your web browser starts acting in an unusual manner, i.e. starts delivering tens of 'Ads by SpeeditApp', 'Brought by SpeeditApp', 'Brought by SpeeditApp' and similarly marked ads. Even though this browser plug-in is not a virus and cannot harm your computer, beware that by displaying those sponsored ads SpeeditApp virus pose harm to your computer's security by redirecting you to questionable websites. This way, you can be tricked into installing other potentially unwanted programs or even virus or malware. In addition to that, it may even try to gather some information about you. In fact, it's specifically interested in search queries that you type and websites that you visit; however, no one guarantees that personally identifiable information won't be collected as well. Moreover, we recommend you to eliminate this add-on with a reputable anti-spyware, such as Reimage Reimage Cleaner and this way avoid not only SpeeditApp redirects, but also system slowdowns, suspicious connections to the Internet, stop misleading ads and, in general, maintain your PC's security.

SpeeditApp is a misleading adware that usually spreads around in a form of add-on, plug-in, toolbar or extension. Even though it can be downloaded from its official websites, people continuously report that they start notice a widget of this program on their desktop out of nowhere and alongside notice a real havoc on all web browsers. That's because this adware relies on various media players, download managers, or PDF creators, and other free software. Please NEVER accept to install such and similar programs and, in general, avoid installing all apps that travel as additional components alongside freeware. Be aware that additional components usually appear to be adware, browser hijackers or other potentially unwanted program that diminish web browser's performance, annoys users in various ways, pose harm to user's cyber security by redirecting to unsafe websites and so on.
