Securor Browser Removal Guide

Do you know what Securor Browser is?

Securor Browser is yet another suspicious low-grade web browser based on the Chromium platform developed by Google. Our researchers have classified this browser as a potentially unwanted program that you ought to remove in a timely manner. We suggest that you get Google Chrome instead if you prefer the Chrome-type interface, because many shady software developers like to create Chromium-based browsers that feature some borderline malicious functions. In short, this browser will render advertisements and gather information about you. If you want to know more about these activities in greater detail, please read the full article.

First of all, the browser’s developers tried to make Securor Browser look as similar to Chrome as possible. Even the shortcut icon is so similar that one might think that Google just changed Chrome’s icon. So visually Securor Browser is almost identical to Chrome if you ignore the name. However, the two browsers have internal differences that make Securor Browser potentially unreliable. The fact of the matter is that this browser displays commercial advertisements. It has no additional extensions, the application has built-in ads. Our researchers have noticed that all of its ads are marked with “Powered by Securor Browser.” However, its ads are quite hard do single out since they are mostly displayed on online shopping websites, such as Wall-Mart. This does not mean that your computer will definitely become infected with Trojans. All we want is for you to recognize that this browser’s commercial content is not subject to any scrutiny or regulations.Securor Browser Removal GuideSecuror Browser screenshot

Securor Browser’s privacy policy states that its website collets information, such as “your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type or version, operating system type or version or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site and by using the Application,” and so on. The website uses tracking cookies to collect this and other data, but you should remove them. You should not allow some shady people to keep tabs on your browsing activities. Moreover, the website might also ask you to provide personal information, such as your email address, and we have a hunch that they might send you spam mail.

As far as we know Securor Browser has been developed by Apps City Limited. Not much is known about this company, but it seems to specialize in developing software, IT consulting and I outsourcing services. In any case, this browser is probably distributed via a dedicated download website. Our researchers did not find it on freeware websites as a standalone program or in software bundles. However, this cannot be confirmed at this particular time.

At any rate, it is clear that Securor Browser is a potentially unwanted program, because it has been developed by a largely unknown software developer. It has been set to display unreliable and annoying advertisements that only serve to hamper your browsing experience. On top of that, the browser’s website can collect information about you, which will probably be used for marketing, commercial, and analytical purposes. So if you do not want to use this untrustworthy browser, we suggest that you remove it.

In non-techie terms:

Securor Browser is regarded as potentially unwanted program, because it has been developed by a shady software developer. The browser is set to inject third-party ads on online retail websites. As per usual, third-party ads cannot be trusted, because they are not regulated, and, therefore, unsafe. So we invite you to download an established and, above all, reliable browser that would block ads – not show them.
