What is Torrent Extension

Torrent Extension is categorized as an adware extension. Upon installation, it injects unwanted changes to settings in order to promote different kinds of intrusive content (in form of ads, pop-ups, banners, coupons, overlay buttons, hyperlinks, etc.) This adware uses virtual layers to display its advertising content over any visited page, including completely legitimate ones. Clicking on such content promoted by Torrent Extension should be avoided as it may lead to various unwanted or malicious pages (e.g., online scams, deceptive pages, websites promoting unwanted software, adult pages, casinos/gambling sites, and so forth). While opening various pages, users may also see that Torrent Extension loads the apiscr.com address in the bottom left corner (“waiting for apiscr.com”).

In addition, this adware has also been reported to have data-surveilling capabilities. This means it can implement illegal collection of browser data (like IP addresses, geolocations, or history) and exploit it for selling purposes. Torrent Extension can target users of Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and other popular browsers. Letting it work might be dangerous for your safety and privacy, so it must be removed from your system. Follow our detailed guide below to do it in the fastest and most effective way.

How Torrent Extension infected your computer

Most often users get accidentally infected by adware and other kinds of unwanted software while installing some third-party software. During installation, they rush with the setup and do not pay attention to additional sections like “Advanced”, “Custom”, or similar. These settings often contain promoted offers that are already selected for installation by default. Unless users deselect this choice on their own, the bundled software will more likely be installed on top of the main program. Third-party installers often make it difficult to spot affiliated products by hiding them away from users. For better protection against unwanted and malicious kinds of software, it is recommended to avoid downloading pirated, cracked software, and freeware from unofficial and untrustworthy resources. Read our guide below to learn about removing unwanted software and establishing even better protection against it.
