Chedot Browser

Chedot Browser Description

Type: Possibly Unwanted Program

The Chedot Browser is promoted on Chedot.com as an innovative Web browser based on the open-source project Chromium that would allow users to download any media on the Internet blazingly fast. In addition, users of the Chedot Browser will be directed to the Chedot.com search portal where they can find direct links to services like YouTube, Facebook and currency exchange rates. Users that may want to download the Chedot Browser should know that it is perceived as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). Security investigators note that web surfers using Chedot only have access to commercials by sponsors of Chedot.com and will not see the native ads on trusted e-commerce sites like Amazon, Walmart, eBay and Best Buy. Moreover, users of the Chedot Browser will not have the option to change their default search engine to leading engines like Google and Bing. The Chedot Browser works similarly to the Mustang Browser and the Protectium and might present users with many pop-up windows to promote sponsored services and products. The Chedot Browser may arrive on your system bundled with a free program installer and edit your Windows Registry values to become your default Internet client. The Chedot Browser may be built upon Chromium, but it may not allow you to browse as fast as your Internet connection allows because it is constantly exchanging information with the servers of advertisers. The Chedot Browser may send information like your Internet browsing and download history logs to advertisers in order to show related commercials on the pages you visit. You may want to remove all files related to the Chedot Browser by using a reputable anti-malware solution.

    When Chedot is running it use, in practice, the full memory available creating the situation than the computer speed fall down. You can check the Chedot memory usage using the Task Manager. Probably the reason is that CheDot use memory consuming background processes. The positive side of CheDot is that it has built-in VPN.
