BrowsePro is yet another adware application from SuperWeb LLC family. This application is not a direct computer security threat, but if you wish to protect your system from any potential threats, you will remove BrowsePro immediately. While you are at it, you should scan the computer with a reliable antispyware application because there is a high chance that BrowsePro is not the only unwanted application on your system. Such freeware applications often travel in packs, so you need to make sure that there are no other unwanted programs on board.
You might say that BrowsePro is a good program because it has an official homepage at browsepro.net, and everything seems to be legitimate. However, the same could have been said about Larparus, Productivitypro, BetterEnhance and an extensive list of other adware applications from SuperWeb family. We are bound to believe that the more or less empty websites are created in order to make an impression that these applications are legitimate. Nevertheless, if you were to try and download BrowsePro from the official website, you will find out that there is no direct download link provided. Hence, we have grounds to suspect this application of foul play.
Since we have encountered similar apps before, we know that BrowsePro usually gets distributed bundled with freeware applications. Most of the time, it comes bundled with third-party installers and downloaders when you download something at a third-party file hosting website. It means that users are the ones responsible for installing BrowsePro onto their computers, but most of the time they are simply not aware of the fact.
When BrowsePro gets installed on target system, it adds extensions to Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox and then starts collecting data on your web browsing history. This information is necessary so that BrowsePro would be able to generate customized commercial advertisements. The application will display banner and pop-up ads whenever you access popular online shopping malls (such as eBay, BestBuy, Amazon and so on). Needless to say, you cannot click BrowsePro ads because you can never know what website you will be redirected to.
BrowsePro often embeds third-party content into its ads, so it cannot be held responsible for the safety of third-party content. Consequently, if you click an ad and land on a dangerous website, you have no one else, but yourself to blame. So if you wish to avoid being redirected to suspicious and potentially dangerous websites, you should remove BrowsePro right now.
As it has been mentioned in the first paragraph, you should invest in a legitimate antispyware tool that would help you protect your system from harm. Also, do not hesitate to leave us a comment if you have any further questions on system security or BrowsePro’s removal.
