DNS Keeper Removal Guide

Do you know what DNS Keeper is?

Users who install DNS Keeper believe that this program will unlock censored sites and protect their virtual privacy. Even if the developer of this program had the intention of offering beneficial services – which is highly unlikely – our research team has found that it does not work the way it should. Instead of unblocking sites that might be blocked in your country, all that this program can do is introduce you to advertisements. As expected, these advertisements are not very reliable, which is why we believe it is best to remove DNS Keeper from your operating system. If there was a good time to say “easier said than done,” it is now, because the removal of this advertisement-supported program can be quite complicated. In this report, we offer the easiest and quickest way to delete this adware.

While analyzing DNS Keeper, it was found that this adware is distributed via vidpot.tv. This is an Online Sharing Community that promotes the so-called Vidpot.tv Survival Kit. This kit is meant to provide you with the tools necessary for watching videos, but you already know that this program, in reality, cannot offer you this service. The developer of DNS Keeper, GreenTeam Internet Ltd., has also unleashed DNS Unlocker, which is another misleading app, promoted at vidcreek.tv. Both of these programs have a bad reputation and require removal because they show potentially unreliable advertisements. Have you encountered "Ads by DNS-Keeper” advertisements already? If you have clicked on any of them, you have to think if your virtual security was jeopardized. In extreme cases, unreliable ads injected by DNS Keeper could be used to introduce malware, which is another reason we propose removing this adware.DNS Keeper Removal GuideDNS Keeper screenshot

You can uninstall DNS Keeper from your operating system, but that does not mean you will have eliminated this threat. As you might know, this advertisement-supported program might change your DNS settings, which you can fix manually. Once you uninstall the undesirable program and change the DNS settings, the potentially misleading ads should stop flooding your browsers. If you continue encountering ads, it is possible that you have failed to delete DNS Keeper manually. If this happens, it might be a good idea to install a security tool that will not only protect your operating system from misleading programs but will also eliminate infections that are currently active on your PC. You should install this program immediately if you have installed DNS Keeper bundled with malicious programs that require urgent removal.

In non-techie terms:

DNS Keeper promises beneficial services, but it cannot live up to anyone’s expectations. The reality is that this program is represented in a misleading way so that users will install it. Once installed, this program will inject advertisements on different sites you visit, and these ads might be unreliable. You can remove DNS Keeper using the manual removal guide below, but you should not forget about legitimate security software either. If you do not install this software now, other advertisement-supported programs and more clandestine threats could slither into your operating system.
