Can’t remove Web Warden? This page includes the ads by Web Warden Removal instructions!

Web Warden promises to serve you as a useful security tool by warning you about dangerous websites you are about to visit. The extension is supposed to provide you with pop-ups informing you about online threats. Another advantage of the program is that it is updated automatically, so you do not have to worry that it will expire without you realizing. Unfortunately, Web Warden is not the most reliable program you could trust your virtual security with. It is ad-supported and it is in your best interests not to keep it on your PC

How did I get infected with Web Warden?

Web Warden has an official representative website with a direct download button provided. However, it is currently impossible to download the extension because it is said to be down for maintenance. Thus, if you have it on your system, it means that it has been installed as additional program alongside another free application. This is a common distribution method that unreliable programs use and it is known as software bundling. Using this method such programs enter operating systems silently, usually because users hurry through the installation process and miss important setup steps.

Why are Web Warden ads dangerous?

You should leave Web Warden running on your system because it will disrupt your browsing activity with tons of advertisements that will show up on practically every website you access. The extension connects to remote advertising servers and provides you with ads owned by unknown third-party advertisers. These ads may lead you to corrupted web pages if you click on them, so you should avoid doing that. Moreover, it is rather pointless to keep Web Warden because it will not function as it is meant to. Remove the extension now together with any other suspicious program you discover on your system.
