Should I Remove Onesafe PC Cleaner and what is this program?
Today’s article is all about Onesafe – the nth potentially unwanted program disguised as an attractive online application. According to this program’s creators, Onesafe is an incredibly useful and completely harmless security tool. According to us, however, and every single PC user who has tried to run this software on their device, Onesafe is nothing but a parasite. It’s promoted to be very effective; “this program will optimize your system settings to enhance your PC’s performance while protecting confidential file information”. Such a devious tactic is quite outrageous because at the end of the day everyone wants a good security tool. Is it really fair to spread a virus by playing on people’s eagerness to protect their machines? Seems like the answer to this question is yes. The official website of Onesafe looks legitimate but in reality this is just another part of the hackers’ trickery in order to get you infected. This parasite not only generates ads all over the place but also tries to directly steal your money. You will be constantly seeing fake alerts claiming that the PC has been compromised and the only way to fix the issue is to call a certain security service. Of course, playing by the rules hackers created is exactly what you should NOT do.
As we already mentioned, this parasite has a very decent-looking website so it wouldn’t really be a surprise if you believed its bogus promises. However, in case you didn’t install Onesafe, there are many other ways to get you infected. Bundled freeware is the most common one. This is a stealthy distribution method for various kinds of infections which allows them to penetrate into your computer in complete silence. You probably figured out already how dangerous this might be as the only thing worse than having your PC compromised is having your PC compromised without knowing it. Always opt for the Custom/Advanced option in the Setup Wizard and don’t hesitate to deselect anything unfamiliar and unwanted. Also, avoid unverified websites no matter how appealing their free software packages may seem to you. It’s highly recommended that you install software from legitimate web pages only and of course, to take a look at the Terms and Conditions first. Other popular distribution methods are spam email-attachments, fake messages, corrupted web links, etc. Remember, your cyber safety depends entirely on you. Don’t jeopardize it.

Isn’t it ironic that one program called Onesafe isn’t safe? Unfortunately, despite the aggressive promotion this tool gets, in reality it could be incredibly dangerous. The developers claim that “after running this software, you’ll feel like you’re using a completely new PC”. Yes, an infected one. Onesafe gets activated immediately after it was installed and starts creating a mess all over your computer. It constantly scans your device and it keeps finding “issues” which absolutely “must” be removed as they “definitely” expose you to danger. Needless to say you cannot trust anything Onesafe states. The scans this program performs are extremely questionable and the whole idea behind them is to convince you that your computer needs help. That help, of course, does not come for free as you need to pay the developers a certain sum of money. Onesafe will keep displaying its intrusive pop-up ads until it either manages to get you seriously worried or until you uninstall the program. Hackers want to you panic so that is exactly what you shouldn’t do. Giving crooks money doesn’t really sound like a good idea, does it? This malicious program exists for monetary purposes only so as you can see, it simply can’t be beneficial. Also, Onesafe might change some of your browser settings, block some perfectly safe web pages and steal your browsing-related information. In addition to that, you will also be seeing pop-up ads, pop-under ads, banners, various in-texts, hyperlinks, interstitials and so on. In order to delete this useless program from your machine, please follow the detailed removal steps down below.
