SecurityApps Removal Guide

Do you know what SecurityApps is?

If you are looking for a reliable security tool, we definitely advise you to stay clear away from SecurityApps. In reality, this is a so-called rogue antimalware application that pretends to be a useful tool for protecting your PC. As a matter of fact, its pure presence on your computer may mean that your system has already been infected with other malware infections as well. You should remove SecurityApps right now in order to avoid any complications. The longer this rogue software is on your computer, the more you may be exposed to online scams. Learn more about the suspicious behaviour this application tends to display and what you can do to clean your system of it.

The first question with regard to SecurityApps is how it enters your system. Although it has a relatively nice and modern website at, you need to know that there is little chance that you find it by looking for a security tool. It is just as equally unlikely that you can actually download it from this website since all three major browsers block the executable file from landing on your computer. That seriously questions the reliability of this software – we hope you agree.SecurityApps Removal GuideSecurityApps screenshot

The most likely way for SecurityApps to infiltrate your PC is being dropped by a Trojan malware infection or by downloading a suspicious software updater. This simply means that there may be other threats on your computer to worry about, too. In this case, deleting SecurityApps will not be enough; you need to run a system scan to see whether there are other malware threats or not. If the scan finds anything, you had better act right away.

Our malware researchers have tested SecurityApps in our internal lab and found that, actually, it has two versions. One will display a false blue screen of death on your computer screen saying that your computer shut down due to a system problem. The other one will display a false Microsoft Security Essentials Scanner panel that happen to find thousands of threats on your computer. In both cases the solution offered to you is the same: You need to call a toll free telephone number, 1-844-258-9534, for support. You may already guess that it is not free support, of course. For around $350, you can have your PC cleaned of all the made-up infections. In fact, what really happens is that this malware gets deactivated. Do not believe these scare techniques and do not even think about paying that amount for this scam. We have found a way to remove SecurityApps from your system.

Obviously, this malware is not easy to get rid of; but, it is not impossible either. If you follow our instructions below this article, you can do that even if you are not an expert. What you need to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode with Networking and locate the SecurityApps folder. Once you find it, simply delete it. However, since it is quite possible that there are a few more threats still hiding on your system, we advise you to download and install a reputable antimalware application, such as SpyHunter. This tool can automatically identify all the known threats and eliminate them. It may be time for you to give your computer the protection it deserves unless you are ready to fight the endless battles manually against the daily refreshing flow of malware infections.
