Do you know what SaferWeb is?
SaferWeb is an adware application. This program has been created to generate financial profit for its developers. It is not a computer virus, and it does not try to infect your system with malware. Nevertheless, adware applications are highly vulnerable to a third-party exploitation, and SaferWeb is of no exception. It would be in your best interest to remove SaferWeb from your computer. While you are at it, please scan your computer with a security application of choice as you need to see whether there are more unwanted applications on board.
The reason we think there might be more unwanted applications on your computer is that SaferWeb does not travel alone. If you accidentally come across saferweb.info on the Internet, the page may look like a legitimate application distributor, but the orange download button does not work. For one, it is very unlikely that users would stumble upon adware homepages when they browse the Internet. Second, adware programs usually get around bundled with freeware, and SaferWeb comes from a group of adware applications that are based on JustPlugIt engine. Almost all of these applications get distributed via InstallRex, Vittalia and Amonetize installers.SaferWeb screenshot

In that sense, SaferWeb is very similar to LuckyCoupon, SaveNShop, SharManCoupon and so on. These adware programs are known to randomize their names upon the installation. Hence, SaferWeb might be installed on your computer as saafferWoeb, saoferrweb or saFErrweb. Despite the fact that the entry on the list of installed programs may differ, the fact that you have an adware application on your computer does not change.
Upon the installation, SaferWeb adds extensions to all main browsers, although the newest versions of Google Chrome block this application. The fact that one of the main browsers blocks this extension for security measures should be enough to convince you that SaferWeb is no good. If the application remains on your system, it will collect information on your web browsing habits and sooner or later you will be exposed to an extensive amount of annoying commercial advertisements.
These advertisements are displayed under a pretense that SaferWeb can provide you with coupons and discount information on your favorite goods at the most popular online stores. However, SaferWeb ads display third-party content, and the application does not review it. Therefore, the advertisements could be embedded with potentially corrupted content and even used for malware distribution.
As a result, removing SaferWeb from your computer should be your utmost priority. When you uninstall the application via Control Panel, scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner as you are bound to have more unwanted applications on your computer. Do everything you can to protect your computer from harm.
