Surf Safely is yet another browser extension developed by Smart Apps. This company, also recognized as Engaging Apps or Enchanted Apps, is well known to our malware researchers who have already reported tens if not hundreds of applications created by it. Unfortunately, these applications do not have the best reputation, and usually require immediate removal. These programs run without permission and can be installed illegally as well. Furthermore, the activity of these programs is not considered to be secure either. Needless to say, we advise that you delete Surf Safely right away.
Even though computer users often miss the moment Surf Safely enters the operating system, this program presents a system tray icon. If you locate an unfamiliar icon on the Taskbar, you should inspect it right away. On the other hand, if you do not notice the icon and do not find the program in the list of extensions, it is possible that you will have trouble finding it at all. You may be completely clueless about Surf Safely removal even if pop-up and banner ads, including Jollywallet offers, are already flooding the browsers. This is because these ads are difficult to identify since they are presented in different forms and promote the services of different parties. All in all, third-party ads may promote fake offers, which is why you should delete the related adware as soon as possible.
If you have decided to remove Surf Safely, you firstly should scan the operating system to locate which computer applications running on the PC require removal. Unfortunately, this ad-supported program often enters the operating system alongside other threats. What is more, it usually comes bundled with adware helpers, like the potentially undesirable program BenchUpdater. If you do not delete this PUP, the adware running on the PC may be updated in a disadvantageous way without any of your notice or authorization. Luckily, this program usually is removed together with adware.
As you can see, the manual Surf Safely removal is possible. The guides below can help you delete the suspicious application from Chrome, Firefox and IE browsers. Even though the guides show how to delete Surf Safely from the PC, this is how you can get rid of the undesirable extension as well. Nonetheless, while manual removal is a great option, it is not the best. We recommend using automatic malware removal software to ensure that adware is deleted from the system. You should also install this software to ensure the reliable protection against malware which may attack in the future.
