If you expect to browse more safely with Browsing Secure, you have been tricked. This advertisement-supported program is not a security tool, and it cannot replace reliable, authentic, useful security software. Unfortunately, since this program is free, many users download it hoping that it will stop all security threats that might target them via malicious sites. Although this program should protect you from phishing attacks and block access to sites hosting “malware software and viruses,” you need to delete this infection as soon as possible. Do not panic if you have no clue how to remove Browsing Secure from your PC because we are here to clear things up.
The website representing Browsing Secure, browsingsecure.net, is quite strange. First of all, it does not actually explain how the allegedly useful security tool works. Secondly, it uses random badges to assure you that Browsing Secure is the most genuine and popular program that you could use. Finally, this website does not offer a working installer, which is the main reason computer users aren’t even aware of this website in the first place. According to our researchers, you might have to delete Browsing Secure after downloading software from third-party sources (e.g., the myspservices.com server). The worst part is that third-party distributors could package unreliable adware with even more unreliable software.
We do not know which programs – if any – Browsing Secure will come bundled with, but it is possible that they will be malicious as well. Browsing Secure belongs to the Montiera family that is infamous for its unreliable toolbars and browser hijackers. It is possible that you will need to remove PUPs and hijackers from your Windows operating system, but you should rely on a legitimate malware scanner to identify which programs on your PC require removal. Note that Security Guard, WinGuard, WebCheck, and other suspicious programs that are very similar to Browsing Secure could also come packaged with malware that will require removal.
As mentioned previously, Browsing Secure is an ad-supported program, which means that it promotes some kind of content. According to our research, this adware is most likely to display potentially misleading shopping deals whenever you visit online shopping websites. Keep in mind that these ads could easily route you to malicious sites or promote deals that are not as beneficial as they might seem. If you wish to get rid of these suspicious ads, you can terminate a running process called “browsingsecure.exe*32”. Of course, this process will be restored sooner or later unless you remove Browsing Secure itself.
Even though Browsing Secure should protect your browser, it is most likely to flood them with useless or unreliable shopping deals. Unfortunately, you should not expect this program to protect you in any kind of way, which is why you have to remove it from your Windows operating system. Once you delete Browsing Secure, tackle other unreliable programs that also require removal. If you want to eliminate all unreliable programs and protect your operating system simultaneously, install a trustworthy antimalware tool.
