What is Chedot?
Chedot is a browser “built for speed, simplicity, and security.” It claims on its official website that it will help you to “download everything you need fast and safely.” As it makes so many promises, it is not surprising that users download and install this browser. In fact, not all computer users who notice the presence of Chedot have downloaded it themselves. Our specialists claim that Chedot also travels bundled with other programs. There are many Russian and Egyptian users’ complaints that this browser has appeared on their systems out of nowhere, so we can suggest that it is aimed at people living there mainly. Of course, other users might notice the presence of Chedot too, especially if they use Russian or Egyptian IP address. It does not really matter whether this program has entered your system without your permission or you have downloaded it yourself because this still does not change the fact that it is a potentially unwanted program (PUP).
How does Chedot act?
First of all, our specialists have noticed that Chedot will start working the moment Windows OS loads up. It means that this product of Guerrilla Programming can perform activities behind your back all day long. What is more, researchers say that the search engine search.chedot.com, which you will see every time you open Chedot, can provide you with sponsored links too. In fact, we have already detected such links on its startup page. It might be really risky to click on them because there is a possibility that these links will be linked to suspicious websites. There is a possibility that you will see other kinds of ads on your screen too. Do not worry; they will appear on the websites only if you open them with Chedot. If this is too much for you, you can get rid of Chedot and start using another trustworthy browser, e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.
If you have not downloaded Chedot yourself, it means that it has slithered onto your computer together with other undesirable programs. These programs might be unreliable, so you should scan your system with a diagnostic tool. If it finds unreliable software on your computer, you should hurry to delete those undesirable programs from your PC. In order not to allow them to enter your system the next time, you should install a security tool. A reliable tool will protect your system from all kinds of threats, but you should not forget that you will have to update your security application periodically and scan your system with it from time to time.
