If you are satisfied with your current browser, it is very unlikely that you would want to change it to Internet Quick Access. This application is a free source web browser that is distributed bundled with freeware. Users often install Internet Quick Access on their computers accidentally, and no one actually forces them to utilize this application. However, computer security specialists recommend that you remove Internet Quick Access because this program does not live up to its promises, and it might be exploited by unreliable third parties for suspicious schemes. Luckily, it is not hard to get rid of this program, and all you have to do is follow the removal instructions below this description.
As far as the technical details are concerned, Internet Quick Access is based on the Chromium engine, and it comes with its own search engine at safebrowsesearch.com. Since the program is based on the Chromium engine, it looks like a reliable application, and some users could easily confused Internet Quick Access with the Google Chrome web browser. What’s more, the fact that the browser comes with its own search engine should supposedly mean the program provides you with legal and reliable service. However, if you were to try and perform a web search via safebrowsesearch.com, you would see that all your queries get redirected to plusnetwork.com.
Thus, we can see that Internet Quick Access does not provide you with an authentic search service. As a result, outsourcing this service from third parties could lead to various computer security-related problems. For example, the search engine could customize search results according to your web browsing habits. This also implies that Internet Quick Access may track your online activity for online marketing purposes. It would not be much of problem if the browser were not vulnerable to third-party exploitation. Yet, now you can never know where the information gathered by tracking cookies would be used later on. In the worst case scenario, you might also end up getting infected with malware.
If you did not plan to have Internet Quick Access on your computer, this is about time to remove it. You should no longer tolerate the commercial advertisements that appear on your screen. This program displays ads that are labeled as “Powered By Quick Internet Access internetquickaccess.” These ads might be embedded with outgoing links that lead to unfamiliar and potentially dangerous websites. Luckily, when you install Internet Quick Access on your computer, it does not affect the default search engine settings on your other browsers. The commercial ads also appear only on Internet Quick Access.
Do yourself a favor and delete Internet Quick Access right now. It is not hard of a task because you can simply uninstall the application via Control Panel. On top of that, you might have more adware and freeware applications on your computer because potentially unwanted programs usually travel in packs. If you are not sure which programs have to be deleted from your system, you can always scan it with the SpyHunter free scanner.
