Although Safe Monitor may seem like a useful browser extension you should think twice before allowing it to stay on your PC. This application is developed by WepAppTech Coding LLC, and it does come across as a legitimate browser plugin that helps you to protect yourself from spyware and tracking cookies. However, the information that we encounter on its official webpage at safemonitorapp.com is highly questionable. The Norton security logo, that is supposed to guarantee that Safe Monitor is a trustworthy application, is fake. Hence, you have a valid reason to remove Safe Monitor from your computer and that is what a majority of security experts recommend you to do.
Some users may think that Safe Monitor enters their system in stealth, but this program requires user’s intervention in order to be installed. Therefore, if the application is installed on your browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer etc.), it means that you have downloaded the plugin from the official website yourself, it came along bundled with freeware applications that you downloaded from third party websites. Be careful when you install shareware applications and games, because free applications seldom come alone.
Luckily, Safe Monitor does not change your home page address or default search engine, but once installed it starts displaying various pop-up messages about your Internet and browser security status. The application claims that it protects you from spies, but at what cost? Safe Monitor tracks your browsing habits, various IP addresses, records search queries and many other things that you definitely would not want for an application to record. In a way, application behaves like a tracking cookie, although it claims that it wants to protect you from such things.
Since Safe Monitor can collect your personal data, a possibility remains that this application can be exploited by a third party to participate in data theft or malware distribution. To avoid such consequences you have to remove Safe Monitor from the PC right now. Follow the instructions below to do it.

When you are done with the manual removal, you should run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner; because you can never know what other potentially dangerous programs could be hiding in your system. Invest in a powerful antimalware tool if need be.
