Potentially unwanted program Internet

Potentially unwanted program Internet is the name of a new web browser whose developers initially named it Internet. Thus, we have explicated its name to avoid confusion. We recommend that you remove it from your computer since it comes from an unreliable software developer. We believe that this browser is used for web monetization purposes and that it was developed as a platform for carrying a certain search engine that can include advertisements in its search results. Also, we have found that this application was configured to gather information about you and use it to tailor the promoted content. So, if you do not want to see unwanted advertisements, then you ought to uninstall this browser, but first we want you to get acquainted with a few facts about it.

Getting to know the company behind an application usually says a lot about the quality of its products. So while doing our research, we have found that Potentially unwanted program Internet was created by a software developer called Clara-Labs. And no, it was not created by the company of the same name based in San Francisco. In truth, we do not know where this company comes from. This browser’s promotional website at www-internetbrowser.com states that it is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. However, we cannot verify this. Moreover, there is another problem. This browser’s files were digitally signed by CLARALABSOFTWARE, which, according to our sources, is based in Paris, France. CLARALABSOFTWARE is a known developer of ad-supported software, so you might want to avoid its products. Now let us talk distribution techniques.

We have found that this program is currently being distributed via bundled software. Bundled software is software distributed using another program that acts as bait. More often than not, bundled software features undesirable applications that are hidden from view behind a purposefully deceitful installation setup. Hence, you should always select advanced or custom installation settings to see if there is any additional software you do not want. So this is how Potentially unwanted program Internet is being distributed. Moreover, its developers count on your ignorance so that this browser could enter your PC undetected. Now that you know how Potentially unwanted program Internet may have entered your computer let us take a look at what it does.

Potentially unwanted program Internet is based on Chromium, a platform developed by Google, so this unreliable browser looks strikingly similar to Google Chrome. Moreover, this browser features a custom never before seen search engine. This search engine’s address is Intent.clara-labs.com/alawar/en-US/search/# and from the look of it, it seems that this search engine is based on Bing.com. However, after testing it, we were surprised to see that it actually redirects to Bing.com’s main competitor — Google.com. Intent.clara-labs.com has no additional digital documentation, but we believe that it probably injects ads into its search results. These ads may come from unreliable sources, especially since this browser was made by CLARALABSOFTWARE, which is known for promoting malicious content. We mentioned that this browser is set to collect information about you for adverting purposes, and we want to elaborate on it a bit more.

According to its privacy policy, Potentially unwanted program Internet was configured to “automatically receive non- personally identifiable information, such as your system's IP address, when you contact our servers and any cookies attached to such search from third parties.” in addition to that it may also collect information about your browser type (this is odd because it seems that the browser collects information about itself,) device type, and language preference. All in all, the information this web browser is set to collect is not personally identifiable in nature, but you might not want to share it anyway because this information will only help its developers to advance their agenda — make more money.

Potentially unwanted program Internet is not a web browser that will revolutionize the way you browse the web. It was created with for the purpose of generating advertising revenue for its shady developers, so the search results of the search engine it comes with are unreliable and prone to contain links to potentially malicious websites. However, the browser itself is safe, and it does not carry out any malicious activities apart from some moderate spying, but this is understandable since many programs these days collect some information. So, if you have decided to remove Potentially unwanted program Internet, then please follow our removal guide.
