Officially, is represented as a cloud-based cyber-security product that is meant to filter the sites you browse and block access to malicious websites.

This is the main reason we recommend having Cloudguard deleted. Continue reading to learn how to delete CloudScout Parental Control and the questionable malware and phishing protection.

Cloudguard is recognized as a PUP, or potentially-unwanted program, because it may come bundled with third-party programs and because it may present online advertisements, which should surprise every user. What is even more disturbing is that these ads are usually represented on sites related to pornography, online games, and other disturbing content access to which Cloudguard should block. If you have discovered this as well, it means that the program is not as beneficial as it claims to be. All in all, when the disturbing ads are presented to you, we recommend that you refrain from clicking on them. If you interact with Cloudguard related advertisements, it is possible that you will accidentally end up visiting highly questionable sites, downloading potentially unreliable software, and participating in other disturbing activity.Cloudguard Removal GuideCloudguard screenshot
