What is SafeGuard?

SafeGuard is classified as an adware application, so it means that this program connects to the Internet behind your back and monitors your web browsing habits. Technically, it is not something illegal, but if you are a security-minded user, you will see to it that SafeGuard gets removed from your computer as soon as possible. Unless you have downloaded and installed SafeGuard willingly from its official website, the application should not be allowed to stay on your system because it could be easily exploited by cyber criminals for their own malicious goals.testtesttest 100% FREE spyware scan and

Where does SafeGuard come from?

We have mentioned that users can download SafeGuard from its official homepage. Actually, if you download SafeGuard from, the application functions just fine displaying various alerts about the stormy weather coming your way. However, the percentage of users who download this application willingly is definitely very low. Seeing how many complaints there are about this application, we can conclude that, most of the time, users download SafeGuard accidentally in software bundles.

This type of distribution method is often used by adware applications, and other programs from the same group as SafeGuard (including Desktop Weather and Severe Weather) have been known to be spread around in software packages as well. When users encounter bundled software, they need to realize that there is more than just one program that they have to delete. Although adware and freeware applications like SafeGuard are not direct computer security threats, it would be highly unwise to just leave them be.

What does SafeGuard do?

The difference in SafeGuard’s behavior lies in its origins. The program from the official website functions just fine, but if it arrived bundled with other unwanted applications, then SafeGuard will not display any storm warnings at all. On the contrary, the application will employ tracking cookies to see what websites you visit and what you usually look for on the web. Once it has your online profile, it will spam you with customized commercial advertisements that will contain outgoing links to unfamiliar websites.

It would not be much of a problem if these websites were safe and reliable, but SafeGuard cannot check their security, and so there is a possibility that the application will end up being exploited by cyber criminals to redirect you to affiliated web pages. In the worst case scenario, it could result in a malware infection or an ultimate money loss.
