Do you know what SafeGuard is?

SafeGuard is an adware program that might look like a useful tool that displays severe weather warnings. Regardless of whether you find the free version of the app useful, it is still considered an infection, because it shows commercial third-party apps that are unreliable.

This article contains information about the infection’s origins, functions, and possible threats that will help you decide whether you want to remove or keep the program.

SafeGuard has been developed by Alerts LLC., which is also credited with developing programs, such as Desktop Weather Alerts, Severe Weather Alerts, StormWatch, and so on.
