What is Downloader for Instagram

Despite the fact that Downloader for Instagram is available for download from the official Chrome Store, many computer experts and anti-malware programs classify it as a potentially unwanted program. Once installed, it’s attached to the browser and corrupts its settings. Even though it can perform stated functions such as downloading/uploading photos, videos and stories to Instagram, none of this matters. The PUP comes loaded with all sorts of adware that will track your activity. It rewrites URLs on other websites to go to their ad tracker before sending you to the site you want to go to. Therefore, some links you click on will instead go to an adware site which will then redirect you to the link you clicked on. I was noticed that most often it redirects users to http://r.srvtrck.com/xxxxxxx domain that is unsafe. With this in mind, we advise you to remove Downloader for Instagram™ + Direct Message extension from your browser. It is not an easy task so we wrote this guide for you.
