Therefore, it is not that surprising that it has been dubbed as a potentially unwanted program by malware experts at In fact, we highly advise you to use other browsing applications instead of this one since it does not seem to exhibit any valuable features. Unfortunately, quite a few users are simply tricked into downloading and installing this questionable tool as it is advertised in a very attractive manner. On its official website, you come across claims stating that you will be presented with customization options and maximum privacy. In reality, TheBrowser does not provide all of this in the best way possible. Due to all suspicious features, we highly advise you to delete it without any hesitation.

Once this invasive piece of software successfully enters your operating system, it will immediately be set as your default web browser, which is annoying to say the least. Additionally, the potentially unwanted program in question will use its own search engine, homepage, and new tab page. Even though at first all of this might seem rather useful, you must know that in reality there is something much more alarming about this suspicious web browser. During the further investigation, we have found out the t search engine in question could be the reason other dubious programs can enter your PC in a rather easy way. This is so because you could be redirected by just clicking on a search result. It is important to note that such exposure is not a direct consequence caused by this potentially unwanted application as it does not control the activity of the search provider.

This means that just by opening such a website a silent download and installation procedure will be triggered without your knowledge. Thus, your PC could be implemented with some unknown application, which consequently could turn out to be malicious. Despite the fact that such situation does not occur often, the chance remains, and the price that you might have to pay is too huge to take such a risk.TheBrowser Removal GuideTheBrowser screenshot
