Remove BoBrowser (Complete Removal)

Suddenly took over your homepage and you cannot remove it.

BoBrowser is one of the many applications on the web that promise to improve your browsing experience. The program is supposed to do that by providing you with free malware and antivirus protection, and by speeding up your browsing and downloads. If you see BoBrowser advertised this way, you will surely conclude that it must be a useful program. However, the behavior the app demonstrates is rather invasive which is why it is regarded as a dubious program.

How did I get infected with BoBrowser?

One of the reasons why BoBrowser is not considered to be a malicious application is the fact that the application can be downloaded from its official website Still, users only download the program from its homepage on rare occasions. Most often BoBrowser arrives on the system bundled with other free software downloaded from third-party websites. It is important to choose only official sources and to be very attentive during the installation process in order to prevent the setup of additional unwanted applications.

Why is BoBrowser dangerous?

As soon as BoBrowser lands on your system and gets installed, it replaces your default web browser. Many computer users mistaken the application for a Google Chrome extension because it is identical to the browser. However, it is important to know that this is done on purpose to confuse unsuspecting users. Soon after its installation, BoBrowser will start displaying numerous commercial advertisements on any web page you visit. This is not only disturbing, but it could also be dangerous because a great number of the ads are fake and misleading. Their only goal is to make users click on them so that they route them to suspicious websites distributing malware or other infections. If you care about your virtual security, it is essential to erase BoBrowser right away.
