Swiki Removal Guide

Do you know what Swiki is?

The term Swiki refers to a browser add-on that modifies Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox by displaying an additional search box below the existing one. The program is aimed at providing you with search results obtained from multiple websites, including social networking websites, video sharing websites, online shops, etc. The search results are provided under separate tabs, and those tabs includes Yahoo, YouTube, Twitter, Amazon, eBay, Wikipedia, and some other websites. However, this seemingly harmless program should be removed from the computer because it may display some third-party advertisements that have nothing to do with Ad.com Interactive, which is the owner of the program.Swiki Removal GuideSwiki screenshot

Interestingly, Swiki enables you to collect certain points that you can redeem to donate for a charity, including Cancer Care, Child Fund Internetional, Wildlife Conversation Society, and many others.

The Swiki browser add-on does not make any visual changes within the browsers. The program does not change the home page and the search provider but may change Internet settings and have some effect on browser functionality. Those changes may be made to insert advertisement into various websites and for some other reasons.

As to Swiki advertisements, they include in-text advertisements, video ads, rick media display ads, and some other advertisements. Every pop-up window is associated with a particular website, which is not endorsed by Swiki. You use the program at your own risk, so, if you want to prevent computer infections and security-related issues, remove Swiki from the computer as soon as you can.

According to the developers of the program, no personally identifiable information is collected by the Swiki browser extension, but if you create an account on swiki.com, you are required to provide your personal details such as your first name, last name, and email address. However, some anonymous information related to targeted advertising may be recorded after installing the program. In case you have no intention of using the Swiki search and interacting with Swiki advertisements, remove the program from the computer right now.

The program has two uninstallers, one of which is named Swiki for IE version 1.2. After uninstalling the unwanted program, it is necessary to remove its extension from Mozilla Firefox. Due to the fact that the program could be distributed alongside freeware, it is worth scanning the computer, and we recommend that you implement SpyHunter. This real-time security program removes Trojan horses, browser hijackers, ransomware, and other threats in no time, so do not wait any longer.
