BrowserWatchdog Ads

BrowserWatchdog Ads Description

The BrowserWatchdog software is delivered to computer users via freeware bundles and is available for download on BrowserWatchdog.com. The official site of BrowserWatchdog may feature logos that suggest it is audited by independent security authorities, but they are just images that are fabricated to claim credibility and encourage users to install the BrowserWatchdog plug-in. The BrowserWatchdog plug-in is promoted to protect users from visiting compromised sites on the Internet that are reported at OpenDNS, but users will be disappointed. Security investigators alert that BrowserWatchdog is adware and should not be trusted. Users that installed BrowserWatchdog report that they were redirected to suspicious online stores and were presented with many pop-up windows that covered their browser screen. The BrowserWatchdog plug-in will not protect your family as its site may suggest and invite you to install rogue security tools like Antivirus 2010 RTK and Win 8 Defender 2013. The rogue apps mentioned before are designed to bring up false detections and ask for money to disinfect your PC. Moreover, the BrowserWatchdog adware may use tracking cookies, detect your approximate geographical location and read your browser bookmarks to generate customized commercials that may contain adult-rated content. Responsible computer users should address the BrowserWatchdog adware with a trusted anti-malware solution to avoid threats to their files and computer stability.
