Safety Center is a rogue security application which seeks to lure you into acquiring its full version. It pretends to have a lot of helpful functions such as spyware scanner, registry scanner and privacy protection. If you look at the interface of Safety Center, you may notice that it is quite similar to Windows Control Panel: different categories are presented through the window. However, the similarity to Windows operating system has nothing to do with the authenticity of the application. Safety Center is a fake tool which you should ignore at any price.
The fictitious application is said to be a clone of Privacy Center; moreover, Safety Center is distributed by a Trojan horse which should be deleted from the system along with Safety Center. Once the program is installed, it starts running whenever the computer is powered on. To convince you that you need to purchase its full version, it displays bogus notifications regarding the security of the PC. You will find some warnings in the window of Safety Center; some notifications will pop up as Task Bar balloons, and so on. If you do not have this cunning application on your PC, below you will find how some of the warnings may look like:
One more symptom to which you should pay no attention is Safety Center’s attempts to deceive you into thinking that the websites which you are browsing are unsafe. If you use Internet Explorer and get a warning saying that you cannot access a particular website, you should take immediate actions to get rid of the infection which does not allow you to browse the Internet.
In order to solve the problem, you should remove Safety Center so that it does not disturb your work on the PC. Ignore the recommendation to active the program, because this is what the criminals behind the malicious program need – they want you to buy the non-existent full version and expose your sensitive information while filling out the purchase form.
To delete Safety Center, install a reliable spyware removal tool. Our advice is to use SpyHunter as this malware removal program can successfully terminate all kind of infections, be it a keylogger, ransomware or a dangerous password stealing Trojan horse.
