Safe Web Alliance Description
Security analysts have received reports of issues involving Safe Web Alliance. Computer users have reported that Safe Web Alliance blocks Web browsers from visiting certain websites, displaying a window claiming that the blocked website contained harmful content. In fact, Safe Web Alliance is considered part of a known misleading tactic that involves selling useless, fake security software to computer users. Safe Web Alliance claims to protect your Web browser by blocking unsafe websites entirely. However, Safe Web Alliance may block legitimate websites or even block pages at random rather than using any kind of legitimate criterion. If Safe Web Alliance is preventing you from using your Web browser normally, it is important to take steps to remove Safe Web Alliance from your computer immediately. Under no circumstances should you heed Safe Web Alliance's warnings or purchase any kind of software or service offered by Safe Web Alliance or content associated with Safe Web Alliance.
What to Do When 'Safe' Turns out to be Danger
The Safe Web Alliance strategy is simple to understand: Safe Web Alliance is marketed as a security add-on for your Web browser that supposedly protects you from unsafe websites and other types of unwanted content. However, Safe Web Alliance will not actually monitor your Web browsing and protect you. Rather, Safe Web Alliance may block legitimate websites in an attempt to convince you to download and install adware or a Potentially Unwanted Program. Safe Web Alliance is used to distribute PUPs and adware rather than to protect your computer.
Eliminating Safe Web Alliance from Your Computer
If Safe Web Alliance is preventing you from using your Web browser normally, a reliable security program should be used to remove Safe Web Alliance and all content associated with Safe Web Alliance. It is important to note that Safe Web Alliance is a relatively new problem, so a fully updated Web browser should be used to deal with Safe Web Alliance. In some cases, Safe Web Alliance redirects may occur after visiting a website with unsafe content. Apart from removing Safe Web Alliance and associated components, make sure to avoid visiting unsafe websites while browsing the Web.
