The internet is full of applications that are hard to categorize. Browser Guardian is one of them. We are forced to label this program as potentially unwanted application because it gets installed on a computer silently. Also, it is often associated with adware applications, and adware programs are seldom 100% safe. Therefore, if you see have Browser Guardian installed on your computer, you need remove this program along with other adware apps. We are sure that you did not intend to have Browser Guardian on your computer, hence the sooner you uninstall the application, the better.
The peculiar thing about Browser Guardian is that this program does what it promises – it can block specific websites that you deem dangerous or inappropriate. Since internet security should be your utmost priority, such programs like Browser Guardian may prove to be useful. However, we cannot forget the fact that it comes uninvited. There is something suspicious about the application, because, for one, there is no working download link at its official website.
We can quickly access Browser Guardian’s homepage at browserguardian.com. There, we can see that with this application you should be able to avoid harmful websites. It says “Browser Guardian places a protective barrier between you and harmful websites so you can feel confident browsing the web in safe hands.” Despite this positive promotion and the fact that Browser Guardian can function as a website blocker, we still need to take into consideration the fact that the program arrives bundled with freeware and adware. What is more, the layout of its homepage reminds us of other websites designed for various adware applications.
In fact, the homepage’s design is an obvious giveaway that Browser Guardian is directly related to Savings Season, Savings Wave, Coupon Champion, Bee Coupons and other adware applications by Exciting apps. If you open your Control Panel and check Browser Guardian’s entry, you will see that the program has been developed by Exciting apps (or Engaging apps, Innovative apps, Smart apps, etc.).
Unlike the coupon adware programs, Browser Guardian does not display any pop-up ads or discount coupons. However, that does not mean that you can trust this program 100%. If it is created by the same people who developed coupon apps, it is very likely that Browser Guardian could eventually expose you to unreliable content. There is also a possibility that malicious third party could exploit Browser Guardian for their malevolent purposes.
Therefore, uninstall Browser Guardian from your computer right now and then scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner. Since this application always comes bundled with other freeware programs, you will need to terminate other unwanted applications as well. The best way to do it is to invest in a licensed antimalware application.
