Safer Web

remove safer web

Safer Web is a browser extension that promises computer users to improve their web browsing experience by giving them a chance to compare offers when shopping online. However, you cannot expect from the application to fulfill its promises because it is classified as an advertisement-supported program. This means that Safer Web will flood your browsers with annoying ads that will interrupt your activity on the web. Moreover, there is a great chance that these ads will not be as beneficial as they are supposed to be.

How did I get infected with Safer Web?

In most of the cases, computer users are tricked into installing various free software programs because they are all advertised as extremely useful. Safer Web, as well as many other adware applications, enter users’ computers after they have downloaded such supposedly beneficial applications. If you are wondering how that happens, you should know that most of the freeware programs downloaded from unknown or unreliable website hide installers of unwanted applications. Therefore, you should always choose reliable sources for downloading software and should always pay close attention to the installation process, and in particular to the offered additional programs.

Why is Safer Web dangerous?

You should always beware of applications that enter your operating system secretly because they cannot be up to any good. Safer Web is capable of tracking your online activity and recording information related to your browsing habits. The collected information is shared with the program’s third-party sponsors who use it to create more relevant ads. The purpose of such ads is to make you click on them as much as possible because they will redirect you to websites that need to increase their traffic count. There, you may be exposed to various threats that might cause security-related issues. Thus, you should remove Safer Web from your PC so that you can prevent further malware infections and other serious issues.
