Shieldme is a computer application for those computer users who want to prevent their children from accessing websites containing inappropriate content. The program is promoted at shieldme.co; however, the so-called official website features no installer of the program. That means that Shieldme can get installed on a computer alongside other programs. The program can be presented as an optional program; hence, it is always important to pay close attention to the information provided by the installation wizard; otherwise, you may miss important details regarding changes on your operating system.
Shieldme is free of charge and is also sponsored by third parties. As a result, you can be provided with third-party advertisements, none of which is owned or controlled by Shieldme. Shieldme accepts no responsibility for third parties and their activities, which means that you interact with those advertisements and sponsored links at your own risk. Since Shieldme has no control over the content delivered to you, we strongly advise you to remove the Shieldme from the computer. Your child may be prevented from visiting unsecured or adult-oriented websites, but you should consider the risk of getting the computer infected after clicking on a Shieldme pop-up. If you want to protect your child, remove Shieldme and find a more reputable children protection program or teach your child safe Internet browsing.
Shieldme is capable of monitoring your online behavior, which is usually done by the vast majority of advertsing-supported programs. Shieldme may record your IP address, the characteristics of the operating system, including type, version, CPU type; and some browsing-related information, such as default search provider, browsing history, and your interaction with the Shieldme program. The data collected may be shared with third parties, which you can prevent by removing Shieldme from the PC.
As regards the removal of the Shieldme program, our advice is that you implement a reputable security program. You can try removing Shieldme manually, which you can do with the help of the instructions given below, but bear in mind that the Internet is full of more dangerous programs. Your operating system can get compromised by Trojan horses, rogue anti-virus programs, browser hijackers, and many other threats, so, if you do care about your online security, do not keep the system unprotected. We recommend using SpyHunter, which can remove Shieldme and safeguard the system against multiple malicious programs.
