Whichever case is true for you, we recommend removing this unreliable application from your system because it is not what it seems to be. Although Browser Hero is advertised as an ad-supported, free web security application on its official website, the only truth in this is the „ad-supported“ part. If you do not remove Browser Hero from your PC, you will have to face a flood of third-party commercial advertisements ruining your browsing experience. If you care about your virtual security, read our report and learn why and how to delete this adware.

The conclusion is always the same: adware is like a time bomb, you need to remove it before it might blow up. Like all other adware, Browser Hero also generates revenue through the pay-per-click system. This means that it will show you customized commercials based on the marketing-type data it collects about you, to make sure you click on them. While you might be a user who likes to shop online and would like to have the greatest and freshest deals available, our researchers would advise you against clicking any of these attractive-looking ads. Browser Hero connects to remote adware servers and might display potentially unreliable third-party ads trying to redirect you to websites that might be infected with malware.

Thus, it is extremely important that you pay careful attention to all the steps through the installation wizard. Otherwise you might end up having to delete all of the unwanted programs if you do not want to risk your privacy or even getting infected by malware.

Since Browser Hero affects Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome as well, you really cannot get away from the ads unless you remove the app entirely from your system. If you use the latest version of Chrome, we have good news for you, because it already blocks Browser Hero.
