What is Stack Player?

Stack Player is an application that has strong connection with adware threats and serves to their promotion. Stack Player has a description of a tool that allows users to watch online videos that the application collects based on personal preferences. On one hand, this option sounds really attractive, on the other hand it means that the service will have access to your in-browser information. In the reality the application is nothing but disappointment, as it totally litters your browser with ads after installation. These ads have shady features too – they appear to be fake and are connected with low-quality commercial sites or sources that promote malware. Clicking these pop-ups and banners will open one of them, and, though sooner or later users realize it, they can’t do much, since sometimes there are so many ads that they block the content of a page. In this article we provide several methods allowing to remove Stack Player both from browsers and the system.
