HostSecure is an advertising-supported browser add-on which displays third-party advertisements on news websites, shopping websites, and many other websites that you access. The HostSecure browser add-on is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Moreover, the program is installed as HostSecurePlugin. Due to the fact that HostSecure displays third-party advertisements, the program is categorized as adware, and we recommend that you remove it from your computer once you notice its pop-ups, web banners, and other advertisements.
If you have HostSecure on your computer, you have probably noticed that it is not working properly. Instead of commercial and non-commercial offers, the program displays blank pop-ups. The reason you do not see any content is that the program does not connect to servers hosting advertisements. The odds are that this issue will be fixed in the near future, which means that you will be put in danger.
The program may also be monitoring your online behavior so that the owners of the program or some third parties can use the information collected for advertising and marketing. Usually, adware programs record clicks, impressions, search terms, browsing history, browser type, operating system, and some other anonymous information. It is also possible that the program will obtain some personally-identifiable information, depending on your browsing behavior.
HostSecure is an adware program, and it should be removed from the computer, especially if you do not remember installing it. HostSecure is bundled with various programs, including PC Optimizer Pro, WordProsper, and many other programs.
If you want to remove HostSecure manually, i.e., uninstall the program, bear in mind that a lot of files which are part of the program will remain on your system. Our advice is to install a reputable anti-malware program that removes the program, including all of its files, for you. We recommend using SpyHunter, because this program successfully deals with various programs; however, we want to inform you that if you implement our recommended program, some manual changes within Google Chrome are still necessary. In order to fully get rid of HostSecure, you will have to fix the Target line of Google Chrome. You will find instructions on how to access the Target line at the very end of the report.
