There have been reports claiming ‘WikiBrowser’ as an adware program. If you see intrusive pop-up advertisements while you browse the internet, that say something like ‘Brought To You by WikiBrowser’, ‘Provided by WikiBrowser’, ‘Ads by WikiBrowser’ there is a real possibility that you might have the add-in installed on your PC. The other way that it might get on your system is with bundled installers of freeware or bloatware. Be cautious, since it may pose danger to your PC.
‘Ads by WikiBrowser’ – How Does It Work?
Security experts claim that WikiBrowser (often confused with Wiki Browser app in Google play store or wikibrowser(dot)co ) may be advertised as a new and safe web browsing extension. However, most sources consider it software that may be add-driven and could be dangerous to PCs. A lot of people might mistake it for software that has a lot to do with Wikipedia, but this has not been verified in any way.
Similar to your usual adware, ‘Ads by WikiBrowser’ might install itself bundled with other software that you may have downloaded from unfamiliar third-party sites (Media Converters, Video Players, Photo Manipulators). Such software might take advantage of mostly fast clicking users who tend to miss out on details, like removing ticks that may say ‘Get WikiBrowser as a bonus’ or something of this type in the Setup program.
After you have such program installed on your computer, you might become a victim of the following actions:
- Flooding with tons of adware programs.
- Personal Information theft.
- Changes in some PC settings.
- Installations of software without your consent.
- Dangerous ads that redirect to suspicious websites.
