Browser Nail is an adware-linked browser extension that may display intrusive advertisements that may irritate the computer user. Usually, adware is not considered threatening for your machine, yet adware may keep track of your Web browsing in order to show advertisements that are related to your preferences. Browser Nail has a technique of distribution named 'bundling'. This technique consists in packaging the adware program with the installation process of needed free third-party software. Therefore, the adware program will enter the computer stealthily if the computer user does not block its installation. This is why security experts recommend careful installation of free programs. The presence of Browser Nail on the affected computer may cause performance problems and its advertisements, if clicked, may direct computer users to unsafe websites.
