Unico Browser is promoted as a user-friendly web browser that is “protection oriented, interruption free, and fast and optimized.” However, our security experts point out that in reality Unico Browser is a potentially unwanted program because it has shady distribution methods, and some of its features could prove to be highly alarming. Thus, if you are a security-minded user, you will make sure that Unico Browser gets removed from your computer immediately. If you do not delete this application, it is very likely that eventually Unico Browser will redirect you to affiliated third-party websites that are related to various online schemes.
If we were to take a look at the browser’s official website at unicobrowser.com, we would see a set of introductory paragraphs that say Unico Browser “is designed with security at its core,” and that the browser “blocks all the annoying ads and does not display any unsolicited advertising either.” Finally, it goes on to say that Unico Browser “is continuously optimized and checked for malware and viruses.” With these kinds of tag lines it sure seems that Unico Browser is a state-of-the-art application ready to improve your web browsing beyond your imagination, but the truth is that all major web browsers are being developed and improved in the very same matter. In fact, Unico Browser is very far from being on par with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or any other popular web browser out there.
Unico Browser is a direct clone of CrossBrowser and BoBrowser. These browsers are developed and signed by CLARALABSOFTWARE (at clara-labs.com). Since the browser has an official homepage with a working direct download link, we cannot label this application as a dangerous computer security threat. Nevertheless, the official website is not the main distribution source, as Unico Browser could easily enter your computer in software packages. If that is the case, then you clearly need to remove Unico Browser and all the other unwanted applications because the browser could be exploited by malevolent third parties to redirect you to corrupted websites.
On top of that, Unico Browser is rather intrusive because it replaces Google Chrome, setting itself as your default web browser. It also deletes Google Chrome shortcuts from your desktop and the quick launch bar, adding multiple shortcuts to YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, and other popular websites on your screen.
Anyone is able to customize her desktop the way she wants, so there is no need to suffer Unico Browser’s interventions. Delete Unico Browser from your computer via Control Panel and then acquire a reliable antispyware application that would help you determine what other programs must be removed from your system. Safeguard your computer against potential threats before it is too late.
