What is Strong Vault?
Strong Vault is a potentially unwanted program. It does not like a computer virus, but it often enters computers bundled with freeware and users install the application unwittingly. Strong Vault is known to be related to Searchqu, Yontoo, Smartbar and other freeware. This backup tool can be installed on all main browsers including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and others. It has not been proved that this application is detrimental to your system's security, but users are strongly advised to remove Strong Vault due to its intrusive nature.
What does Strong Vault do?
Strong Vault can collect your web browsing data. It monitors your browsing habits and then stores the collected information on your computer. Although it does not seem that Strong Vault would connect to a remote server behind your back, however it does set your home page and search provider to Searchqu. This search engine tracks your searches as well. Strong Vault also offers you to upgrade the program by paying a particular sum of money. Users who have decided to get their money back from the upgrade have not reported to have any problems with the refund, however, it has been noticed that this program retains residual files even after it has been removed. Therefore, it is possible to presuppose that Strong Vault might pose certain security risks to your system.
