If you accidentally encounter browsersecurtiy1.et on the internet, it would be for the best to stay away from this website as far as possible. The website will look like a decent homepage for a browser extension, but you should think again before downloading Browser Security onto your computer. Rather than being a reliable application that can help you enhancing your browser’s performance, Browser Security is actually a potentially unwanted adware application, and it can expose you to potential security threats. Therefore, it is for the best to remove Browser Security from your system.
Needless to say, downloading Browser Security from the main homepage is not the only way to get this application onto your computer. It is far more likely that the program arrives bundled with freeware apps, such as OffersWizard, DolphinDeals, Remarkit, Plus-HD and many others. Perhaps, you were trying to download one of the aforementioned applications, and you did not even notice that Browser Security came along as well. It just proves that you should not be downloading freeware applications from third-party websites. Such sites that distribute freeware cannot be trusted because almost anyone can embed their files and installers in these websites.
According to our research, Browser Security has been active since October 2013. It is very similar to other applications from the same family, such as WebEnhance, SecurityUtility or WebCheck. For the most part, these applications promise to protect you from phishing attacks. They say that they can improve your online security, but in reality Browser Security causes the opposite effect – this application can expose you to potentially dangerous websites and corrupted content.
It happens because after installation Browser Security starts collecting data on what websites you visit and what you search for online. Twelve hours after the installation, this program begins displaying commercial advertisements on your default browser (Browser Security is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer). Most of the users simply ignore Browser Security ads because they are more annoying than dangerous, but you should not just shrug it off.
Although these pop-ups cannot infect you with malware directly, they are still highly intrusive. What is more, if you happen to click any of these advertisements, you will be redirected to a third-party website that may not be related to whatever you have been looking for. The thing is that adware programs are created to earn easy money for their developers, and Browser Security does not care whether you want to see the ads or not. It simply functions as a messenger, and the program does not even review the ad content.
If you want to avoid this annoying nuisance and potential computer security issues, you should uninstall Browser Security from your computer right now. Please follow the manual removal instructions below to terminate Browser Security for good. For any further questions, do not hesitate to leave us a comment below.
