How did I get infected with?

The most popular distribution method nowadays is called freeware bundling. Hackers seem to particularly enjoy it as bundles not only allow them to infect thousands of people but to also do it in complete silence. This infiltration tactic is incredibly dangerous and even though Funbrowsi and other adware parasites are rather easy to remove, that is not the case with all PC viruses out there. Remember, Trojans horses and ransomware apply that very same technique. Our advice is to download program bundles from legitimate websites only and avoid all kinds of unverified pages when it comes to software. Also, make sure you check exactly which programs come bundled unless you want to be surprised with some kind of a “bonus” later on. Other thing we strongly advise you to do is avoid spam email-attachments or spam messages as they could be easily corrupted with malware too. Last but not least, do you have the habit of reading the Terms and Conditions? You definitely should. Rushing to click “I accept” without knowing what exactly you’re accepting may cause you a gigantic headache and at the end of the day you have no one to blame but yourself.

Why are these ads dangerous?

Being a PC infection, Funbrowsi cannot be safe. It was designed for commercial purposes only which means it has absolutely nothing to do with your cyber security. Once it gets installed, the program adds a malicious extension to all your browsers. You should know that Funbrowsi is perfectly compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer so it doesn’t really matter which one you prefer to use. The parasite needs its extension to inject your browsers with an incredibly impressive amount of pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, interstitials, in-texts, hyperlinks, etc. All of them are very hard to deal with as the virus generates ads till the very moment it gets deleted. Apart from being stubborn, the Funbrowsi commercials also hide a number of security threats. The program comes for free which means its developers rely mainly on the commercials to gain profit. In order to do so, they are willing to display you all kinds of unreliable ads. It should be your number one priority to stay away from all links on your PC screen that were distributed by the Funbrowsi parasite unless you’re deliberately trying to install more malware. In addition, Funbrowsi collects your browsing-related information and uses it to adjust the commercials. Hackers would love to gain some more money through the dubious pay-per-click system and you don’t need to become their sponsor. To put an end to all trickery  Funbrowsi brings along, you have to take quick measures and remove the parasite. If you decide to do so manually, please follow the detailed removal guide down below.
