If SNAP thinks your computer can’t handle its crazy security suite, then it doesn’t bother forcing you to install it. Here’s how to skip the installation of Mason spyware.
- Install Firefox.
- Install User Agent Switcher.
- Use User Agent Switcher to apply a fake user agent string.
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3
No matter which browser (Safari, IE, Opera) or operating system (Mac, Windows, Linux, Unix, DOS) you’re using, SNAP–or any website–will trust your user agent string.
