Browser Secure is classified as a potentially unwanted program, most likely promoted as a tool that protects the browser from hijacking. Potentially unwanted apps are often installed together with other freeware available for download on legitimate websites. Browser Secure is not defined as a malicious threat, but it may trigger certain issues on the operational system. On one hand, if Browser Secure is ad-supported, the user may start witnessing numerous advertisements such as pop-ups, banners, and in-text ads. They may be related to his search queries, or may be random. Either way, clicking them may lead to unsafe browser redirects.
Browser Secure Distribution Method
Potentially unwanted applications such as Fresh Outlook usually enter the system via packaged downloads also known as software bundling. Bundled downloads are often used by both application developers and third party online marketers for solely financial reasons. For instance, online platforms may be monetized through bundling. That is why it is crucial to remember that clicking the ‘next’ button without reading ‘the fine print’ while installing free software is not considered safe. Instead, the user should always opt for the advanced installer option so that he can uncheck any program added to the original one.
