What is BrowserWatchdog?

We want to make people aware that BrowserWatchdog is not the program that it appears to be. We recommend that you remove it, because it masquerades as a tool that protects against malicious websites, while in reality it is just a plain adware-type program. The developers deceive users into downloading this application by leading them to expect a professionally delivered service while they will only receive third-party advertisements. These ads should not be taken at face value, because they might come from unreliable entities that advertise useless and even malicious software, as well as unreliable online shopping websites. Of course, the ads are not limited to the aforementioned niches We argue that this application is untrustworthy and that a security-minded individual should take action against BrowserWatchdog.test

Where does BrowserWatchdog come from?

First of all, it must be said that the true name of the company or the group of developers is unknown. So the question is, why would legitimate developers want to stay in the shadows? No legitimate software developer does this, and it is easy to see why this developer does not want to reveal its identity. This company is also responsible for numerous other adware releases that include Majestic Coupons, DealCoaster, Ninja Savings, and Price Slicer, as well as a few other programs. All of the foregoing programs are almost identical; the only thing difference between them is their promotional campaign.

Now let us discuss how BrowserWatchdog is disseminated. This program has a promotional website, which should also contain a download of its installer. But, fortunately, the download does not work. However, we are aware that this program is distributed by some unknown freeware-sharing websites that probably bundle BrowserWatchdog with either legitimate or potentially unwanted programs (also called PUPs). There is not a lot of information about its distribution methods at this time, so, if you have this on your computer, please tell us how you got it in the comments section below.

What does BrowserWatchdog do?

We want to get the word out that BrowserWatchdog will not protect your computer from malicious websites or do anything even remotely similar to this. Of course, there are programs that can block access to malicious websites, but this particular program is not one of them. This program’s End User License Agreement, found on its promotional website, states that this program can display sponsored links and in-texts in the search results of Bing or Google, pop-ups, banners, coupons, and video ads. So, as you can see, for a supposed security tool, BrowserWatchdog has quite an extensive selection of advertising options built into it. And the ads it displays may prove to be intrusive and unreliable, because they are provided by largely unknown entities.

How do I remove BrowserWatchdog?

We hope that this short article has shed some light on this deceptive program. Its supposed functions are nothing but a fantasy, while its ad-displaying capabilities are as real as they get. We are concerned with the fact that this application may display unreliable ads that promote unreliable software as well as websites. So you should not take any chances and remove BrowserWatchdog ASAP.
