Bridgetrack might sound like something important, but in reality, it is merely a tracking cookie that might pull you off the track once in a while. Tracking cookies are not immediate computer security threats, but any researcher out there would tell you that it would be better to get rid of them. It is not complicated to remove Bridgetrack, so the sooner you terminate it, the better.
Also, you would do yourself a favor if you were to scan your computer with a licensed antispyware tool because there might be more unwanted intruders on-board. And your system’s security should be one of your top priorities.
Our research suggests that Bridgetrack was first detected back in 2009. So it is a very old tracking cookie that still works. Normally, it was associated with bridgetrack.com, but it doesn’t mean that this website is the main distribution source. You might catch this cookie at some other website that employs it. And there’s nothing much you can do avoid adding tracking cookies to your browser because there are LOADS of websites that use them to collect information on their traffic.

However, our problem with Bridgetrack lies in the fact that we cannot guarantee that this cookie doesn’t get exploited by malevolent third parties. In other words, tracking cookies seldom can decide what KIND of content they may promote. So while they may not intend to infect you with malware, they might inadvertently share the information they have collected about you with unreliable third parties. From there, you could be exposed to corrupted content once you click an outgoing link.
Needless to say, a malware infection is a worst-case scenario, and it seldom begins with at tracking cookie. But since the possibility if there, it would be for the best to remove Bridgetrack from your system.
To remove Bridgetrack for good, you should consider restoring your browser’s settings to default. You can find the instructions on that right below our description. After that, scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner. Do you think there’s only one tracking cookie on your computer? The chances there that you have dozens of them. And it’s not just about tracking cookies. There is a very good chance that you also have potentially unwanted programs, adware apps, and other suspicious software installed. So while you are at it, make sure that you terminate and delete everything that might cause any threat to your system’s stability.
