What is Browser-Security?

Browser-Security is said to be a browser protector. Supposedly, this extension will protect you from phishing websites while you browse the web, but it most likely will not, so we suggest that you remove this application. The program’s real purpose is something of a mystery. Therefore, we will try to shed light on this program so you could decide for yourself whether you want to remove it. However, our researchers have classified this application as a potentially unwanted program. So it falls into the category of programs that are not malicious, but they do not do anything good either.testtesttest 100% FREE spyware scan and

What does Browser-Security do?

We rarely see an application developed for a particular segment of the world’s population, but Browser-Security appears to be one of those rare cases. The application is set to target German-speakers. Now, as we mentioned earlier. This application should protect you from phishing websites. So we gave this application a test run. We installed it on a computer and deliberately visited known phishing websites. The application did not give any warning or blocked access to the website. Therefore, it can be said that the application is useless, and there is no reason to keep it.

One thing remains unclear, however. If Browser-Security is unable to perform the functions its advertisement campaign claims to perform, then what is that it can do? How the developers make money off this application? It is quite possible that the application can show commercial advertisements, but we did not see any, maybe they are not as common and intrusive to notice. In any case, apart from showing ads, there is just no way this application can make a profit to its developers. So as you can see, Browser-Security is not actually a browser protector, but a purposeless application.

Where does Browser-Security come from?

This application has been created by Vondos Media GmbH based in Berlin, Germany. Browser-Security has a dedicated website from which you can download the application for Firefox. There is also a version for Internet Explorer, but it cannot be downloaded from the website. It is most likely disseminated using unreliable software bundles that contain adware. So if you use Internet Explorer and you have Browser-Security on it, then you should also scan your computer for malicious content using a dedicated program.

How do I remove Browser-Security?

So now you know that Browser-Security is not a browser protector, but a useless program that just takes up space and wastes system resources for no apparent reason. Do not be fooled by carefully crafted promotional slogans. Browser-Security is not the kind of program that would be capable of warning you about phishing websites, as we learned ourselves. Therefore, you can remove this application without any second thought. Also, we recommend checking your PC for malicious content if you got this browser extension by installing a software bundle. As the saying goes — you can never be too careful.
