If you think that a browser extension cannot do much harm, you do not want to face Privacy SafeGuard. This seemingly legitimate and helpful add-on developed for Google Chrome browsers has been noticed to be managed by schemers who could use it to steal your own money. Even though many Windows users could detect the extension running on their browsers without their own consent, as it can travel alongside bundled downloads, which suggests necessary removal, you could also download it at privacysafeguard.com. This is not recommended because it is extremely difficult to delete Privacy SafeGuard and this is what you will want after reading this report.
Even though Privacy SafeGuard is marketed as a reliable extension capable of producing protection for your PC and your personal data, it is highly suspicious.

When you come to the Website, our web server sends a cookie to your computer. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. There are two types of cookies: session-based and persistent-based cookies. We also may permit certain third party cookies to be placed on our Website.

Once this happens, you could notice changed home page, your browsing could be redirected to questionable sources and your screen could become besieged by disruptive online ads. In case you are already noticing strange online ads offering you seemingly unrealistic services, and you want to remove appeared symptoms, you should delete Privacy SafeGuard without further delay.
Privacy SafeGuard removal is unavoidable and the sooner you delete the corrupted browser extension from your personal computer, the sooner you can run the PC in a regular manner. Please install SpyHunter to detect and delete Privacy SafeGuard from your computer.
