Some computer users believe Protected Browsing to be a reliable and beneficial browser add-on. The suspicious program is promoted at protectedbrowsing.net; however, the download link on this site has been disabled. Regardless, the website plays an important role. For example, if the advertisement-supported program is offered to you as a free addition alongside other applications, you may visit this site to learn more about Protected Browsing. Unfortunately, if you trust the provided information, you may install the application without even thinking that you will need to remove it in the future. Unfortunately, it is necessary to delete Protected Browsing from the PC.

Protected Browsing has been published by the same company (Gratifying Apps) which is responsible for 1SaleADay and other disruptive advertisement-supported software. We list Protected Browsing as adware as well because instead of providing the security services it promises, the program actually displays random online advertisements. The suspicious application may produce in-line, banner and interstitial ads, pop-up coupons, offers to install third-party software, and other suspicious suggestions. If you do not remove Protected Browsing, the program may employ browsing cookies to collect information about your browsing history to ensure that the presented ads are alluring and irresistible. Unfortunately, the presented offers may be completely unreliable, and because of this risk, you should delete adware.

Despite promising you to watch your back while you browse the web, Protected Browsing will flood your browsers with disturbing online advertisements, also known as Ads by ProtectedBrowsing. These ads may belong to third parties and may promote unreliable services and products. If the removal of additional threats does not seem like a good idea, you should be very careful about the advertisements you click on. Do not accept suspicious offers before researching them, do not install unfamiliar programs, regardless of how wonderful they may seem, and do not disclose private, sensitive information. Keep in mind that if you need to remove Protected Browsing, it is possible that you already need to delete other programs as well, considering that adware often travels bundled with other programs.

You can install automatic malware removal software to delete Protected Browsing from the PC. This is the best option you have, especially if other disturbing and unfamiliar applications are running on the computer. If you have scanned the operating system and no additional threats were detected, you can follow the manual Protected Browsing removal instructions. Once the PC is cleared from malware, install legitimate security software to safeguard it in the future.
