Remove Unico Browser from Your Computer

Unico Browser is a web application created by Clara Labs Software and promoted as “interruptions-free”. The browser has a striking similarity to Google Chrome, but experts consider it to be less reliable and potentially unwanted. Unico Browser is known to alter the browser settings on the affected computer, assigning itself as a default search engine. Unico Browser may present the user with manipulated search results and cause redirects to predetermined web pages. Due to its ability to display intrusive marketing materials, the application is considered a PUP and its removal is recommended.

How Is Unico Browser Distributed?

The Unico Browser can be downloaded from its official web page. If Unico Browser appears as your search engine without your permission, then it has probably entered your system bundled with other software you’ve downloaded online. To avoid confusion and unwanted installations, users are advised to go for the Custom options, where they can see a list of all additional programs that get installed with the desired software.

Is Unico Browser Dangerous?

The Unico Browser uses a conventionalized version of the Google Chrome browser and sets its own homepage as the default search provider. Although the application is capable of deleting Chrome browser shortcuts, it is not considered a high-level threat.

In case Unico Browser infiltrates your computeр bundled with adware, it will flood the web pages you visits with third-party advertisements regardless of your browser choice (the application is compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Explorer, etc.) The promoted ads may seem harmless, but they may link you to unsafe web locations if clicked on. This is why experts recommend the removal of Unico Browser with a trusted AV tool.

How to Remove Unico Browser from Your Computer?

Unico Browser can be removed manually or with the assistance of a competent anti-spyware application.
