If you want to ensure safe browsing, you do not want to install Secure Chrome PRO. Instead of making your experience more secure, this extension will only make it more unpredictable. According to our research, this suspicious extension – which, right now, is only compatible with Google Chrome – has the ability to hijack the browser’s default search provider without informing the victim about it. The search tool is unpredictable too, and trusting it to deliver reliable and safe search results is extremely risky. Without a doubt, our research team recommends deleting Secure Chrome PRO. Even if you are capable of avoiding it, you do not want it installed on your browser for much longer. You can continue reading this report to learn more about the risks that you would be facing if you kept this hijacker installed. If you want to get to the removal part right away, scroll down the page to find the instructions.

Have you downloaded Secure Chrome PRO from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/secure-chrome-pro/balaejcnclfobnenddbghfljcjnkmfed? This is the download page on Chrome web store. Although this source should promote only reliable extensions, it is not that surprising that malicious ones can slip through due to the sheer volume of add-ons offered via it. Therefore, although you can find great add-ons on Chrome web store, you need to be careful. And do not be mistaken by the number of users or the reviews that support these add-ons because they can be fictitious. The installer on Chrome web store does not reveal much about Secure Chrome PRO except that it is meant to provide you with protection. If you click the “Add to Chrome” button, you are informed that data can be read and changed, but there is no information about the default search provider modifications. However, when you install the add-on, defendsearch.com is set as the provider, and that is why the add-on is classified as a hijacker that requires removal. Most users will delete this threat because of the unauthorized search provider changes.

The suspicious Secure Chrome PRO might have slithered into your operating system without your permission. According to our research, this undesirable extension does not have the power to slither in silently on its own, but it could have been introduced to you by a malicious installer that could have hidden the add-on along with other infections. Do you know if other threats exist on your operating system? That is very easy to find out. All you need to do is install a legitimate malware scanner, and it will tell you right away if there are any threats that require removal. Obviously, if malware is found, you cannot postpone the elimination for any longer. What if you find the services of Secure Chrome PRO beneficial? Although this search tool might create an illusion that it is somehow protecting you against phishing and malware websites, the reality is that it serves just like any other unreliable search tool. If you continue using defendsearch.com, you will be introduced to results that are “powered by Google Custom Search,” but the party behind it could also inject malicious links. The reality is that there is no official information about this hijacker, and so it is completely untrustworthy. It is best for you to remove it.

There are no reasons to keep Secure Chrome PRO around, but there are plenty to delete it. This add-on might seem great at first, but if you look into things deeper, you discover that the developer of this strange program is hidden and that there is no official information about it. That is strange. Although it is promoted as a search tool that can protect you, it does not serve in that way. It only showcases search results that are taken from Google Search, and third-party links curated by the hijacker can be injected along with these results. Basically, you could get in trouble by interacting with defendsearch.com. This hijacker takes over the browser without permission, and that is why you must delete it ASAP. The good news is that if you remove Secure Chrome PRO, the hijacker will be eliminated too. Follow the instructions below, or, if other threats are found, employ an automated anti-malware tool to have the system cleared.
