What is Olive Browser?

If you rely on olivebrowser.com, you will think that this web browser can make web surfing more enjoyable. What is more, it should also ensure safe browsing.

As a rule, users skip the research and install software without knowing much about it. Fortunately, not all programs are malicious and act in an unexpected way. However, if you are not lucky, you might stumble upon harmful programs. Learn to remove Olive Browser using this report.
How does Olive Browser work?
Olive Browser is published by Tuguu SL. According to our researchers, this company may be responsible for the distribution of FindoPolis, and other suspicious programs. It was found that third-party programs could be offered in addition to this PUP, and, in most cases, users are introduced to the Cassiopesa search provider. If you are careless when downloading the Chromium-based browser, third-party programs could be installed without your notice because their installers could be executed by default as soon as you click the Next/Install button. This proves how important it is to pay close attention when downloading software onto your PC. We advise that you research every single program that is offered along with the PUP just so you would not let in malware without even knowing it. Luckily, it is unlikely that third-party programs will be installed without your permission.
Unless you install third-party search tools, you will be greeted by search.olivebrowser.com when you launch Olive Browser. This search tool introduces Google Custom Search, which can be controlled by the creator of this browser to promote third-party links. You might also be introduced to banner ads on the start page. According to Terms & Conditions, all kinds of ads could show up when browsing the web; however, the parties creating these ads are not disclosed which cannot be dismissed! One more thing we have to mention is that the same Terms & Conditions document is used to represent VAFcompressor and tons of other unreliable programs that we strongly recommend eliminating. This reveals that the creator of Olive Browser has created a ton of unreliable programs, which is suspicious, to say the least.
How to delete Olive Browser
Olive Browser is not a trustworthy program. This browser does not offer services any better than the ones introduced by authentic and trustworthy web browsers. On top of that, it injects ads, shows modified Google search results, and spies on its users using web cookies. To put the cherry on top of the cake, this program might let in other unreliable programs. The best thing you can do in this situation is run a malware scanner to learn which programs you need to eliminate from your personal computer. Unfortunately, manual removal has been proven to be complicated. Even if you uninstall Olive Browser, you will have to deal with leftovers as well as third-party infections. This is why we advise using an automated malware detection and removal tool instead.
