- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
BrowserSafer is a very misleading name as it suggests that by using this application you can browser more safely. Although that is exactly what this useless program tries to make you believe, by promising, for example, to block malicious websites. But the sad truth is that the main function of this application has nothing to do with your safety since it is all about displaying potentially risky third-party advertisements. As a matter of fact, it does have something to do with safety after all, since it can actually put your virtual security at risk by showing you these commercials. If you are distracted by pop-up ads while you are surfing the web, it is possible that your computer has been infected with this malware. We advise you not to hesitate and delete BrowserSafer ASAP.
Adware applications are only beneficial for their creators. These programs are simply gold mines since they are relatively easy to develop and spread all over the web. With every click on the ads they display, the people behind the scenes get paid. It is called the "pay-per-click system." Therefore, obviously, the only goal for BrowserSafer is to show you lots of commercials and try to make you click on them. This adware can collect information about your searches, the products you buy online, and more. Based on this, third parties can send targeted ads to your computer screen. Imagine how you would react if you saw an ad about something you have been planning to buy, but this time you cannot resist temptation because the offer is too good to ignore – and you click. But that would be a big mistake.
You can never know which ads are trustworthy. We cannot say that all ads on the web are malicious; obviously not. However, this adware cannot guarantee the reliability of the third-party web content you might be exposed to; therefore, you might land on a malicious website when you may think you “hit the jackpot” and get your precious product for an amazing price. Criminals have sophisticated methods to fool people -- even into disclosing their banking information. If you do not want to experience an encounter with such schemers and their websites, we recommend that you remove BrowserSafer right now.
Although this worthless adware program has an official-looking web page, browsersafer.com, it is impossible to download it since the Download Now button fails to function. That is rather annoying and, of course, suspicious as well; not that we would think that this is the only way for BrowserSafer to be promoted. As a matter of fact, we have found this application in freeware bundles that contained other malware infections as well. That is really bad news for users who are infected with this adware because deleting BrowserSafer will not be the end of their nightmare.
Fortunately, you can easily put an end to this infection if you follow our guide that we have shared with you below this article. All you have to do is uninstall BrowserSafer through Control Panel. It is that simple. But remember to take care of the other possible threats as well, since you cannot be completely safe in your virtual kingdom until all the infections are gone. Therefore, we advise you to invest in a reputable antimalware program that will automatically tackle all your security-related issues and protect your PC from future malware attacks.
