What is Browser Guardian?
Browser Guardian is a potentially unwanted program that travels together with adware applications. At first sight, it comes across as a useful program that can help you avoid dangerous websites and enhance internet security. Nevertheless, the manner of distribution is highly disturbing because Browser Guardian does not ask for your permission to enter your PC. That is why our computer security specialists are forced to categorize this browser plug-in as a potentially unwanted application, and you need to remove Browser Guardian from your system in order to avoid any potential system security threats.
Where does Browser Guardian come from?
When one deals with legitimate programs, one will expect it to be possible to download a program at its official homepage. Browser Guardian has a homepage too. We can access it at browserguardian.com. The website claims that Browser Guardian is frequently updated, cross-compatible and free to download. By saying that this program is cross-compatible, it means that Browser Guardian can be installed on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. However, it is not “free to download,” because the direct download link is not working.
It means that Browser Guardian comes ONLY bundled with freeware. Since this program is created by Exciting apps, we can expect Browser Guardian to be included in the same setup file with Savings Wave, Sharp Savings, KeyCoupons and a number of similar adware applications by the same developer.
What does Browser Guardian do?
The truth is that Browser Guardian can literally block potentially dangerous websites. It means that this program is not a dangerous computer threat. It is clear that Browser Guardian does not intend to infect you with malware.
Nevertheless, at the same time it is rather disturbing that Browser Guardian does not inform you about the oncoming installation. This program always comes with adware apps, and we know that adware cannot be trusted. Not to mention that there is no direct download link at the official website, and that is not something one would expect of a useful program.
What is more, due to the fact that Browser Guardian is associated with adware programs, we can assume that it can also be exploited by malicious third parties.
How to remove Browser Guardian?
Third-party exploitation is the worst that can happen to adware and freeware apps. They are not malicious on their own, but they are vulnerable, and cybercriminals can misuse them for their own dangerous purposes.
Therefore, you need to prevent this from happening at all costs. Since there is a possibility that Browser Guardian could be used as a tool for malware distribution, you have to remove Browser Guardian from your computer. Uninstall all the other adware applications while you are at it, and then acquire a powerful computer security application that will help you safeguard your system against similar threats in the future.
