What is FreeTemplateFinder?

FreeTemplateFinder is a potentially unwanted program created by notorious Mindspark Interactive Network. FreeTemplateFinder gets on computers without users’ permission, as it is often included in software bundles. Nonetheless, it also can be downloaded from the official website (https://www.freetemplatefinder.com/index.jhtml) or other legitimate sources, such as the Chrome web store. Even so, it does not mean that the application is entirely safe to use. Once installed, it takes control of the user’s browser and changes homepage/search settings to http://hp.myway.com/freetemplatefinder/***. Despite developers’ promises of “enhanced by Google” search results, users have to deal with the opposite – a huge amount of ads which cover up the content of websites users visit. There is no guarantee that the content displayed by hijacker is virus-free. Thus, you might be tricked into clicking on links that lead to dangerous websites or scam sites trying to swindle your personal information through various surveys. Make sure to remove FreeTemplateFinder as soon as possible, even if you installed the program on purpose.
