SecretSauce is an adware program which, as it claims, provides the best tools to enhance the browsing experience. However, it is far from being so useful because its main aim is to advertise various products and services, which is why we recommend that you remove SecretSauce from your computer. If you keep this software on your system, you will definitely see various advertisements appearing while you are browsing the internet. As this browser is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox and all the Windows versions, it can be suggested that it is aimed at a wide range of computer users.

It is already known how SecretSauce gets onto your computer. Even though it has its official homepage, the download does not work there, which suggests that this program might be distributed through bundled downloads mainly. Our 411-spyware.com specialists have closely inspected this software and then revealed that this adware might come bundled together with other software, for instance, TornTV and Mobogenie. In order to prevent SecretSauce and similar programs from getting onto your computer, you should always pay attention to the installation process itself. What is more, you should always select advanced installation to be able to unmark all the components that you do not recognize or just simply do not want to have on your computer.

SecretSauce is called adware deservedly. It tends to show you various advertisements, coupons, and other pop-ups that appear while you are browsing the internet, especially such popular online shopping websites as ebay.com and amazon.com. It also modifies Google search by adding the section “Ads related to [your search keyword]”. We do not recommend trusting these advertisements and clicking on them. You should know that they might lead you to potential threats. You might wonder how it is possible, but actually everything is very simple. When you click on the advertisements, you are redirected to different websites, but their content tends to be unknown. SecretSauce is not responsible for the material of the third parties in any case. If you want to keep your computer safe, you should remove SecretSauce and never install it again.

There is yet another reason which makes us believe that SecretSauce is a useless piece of software. It is the fact that it might violate your privacy by collecting information about your browsing habits. As it is stated in its Privacy policy, non-personally identifiable information is collected, stored, and used for business and marketing purposes, for instance, in order to display relevant advertisements and content. However, you should delete SecretSauce if you do not want to reveal such information and share it with third parties.

You can erase SecretSauce manually using the instructions which we have provided for you below or you can acquire a reliable antimalware tool and scan your computer with it. We recommend that you use SpyHunter; it will not only remove various threats, including SecretSauce, but also keep your computer protected 24/7.
