What is Browser Guardian App?

Browser Guardian App is a program that is promoted as a totally valuable application. Those who have already installed it on the system were convinced that it is capable of protecting them during their surfing. Unfortunately, its developer fails to mention that Browser Guardian App may not only try to block malicious websites and programs seeking to infect their computers. It may also start tracking their browsing sessions, display continuous pop-up ads and cause redirects to affiliate websites. That's why security experts decided to start calling this program a potentially unwanted application and included it to the database of their programs. If you are annoyed by Browser Guardian App redirects, popup ads and other activities that are initiated by it, you should scan your computer with reputable anti-spyware.

Please uncheck them in order to avoid appearance of Browser Guardian App on each of your web browsers.
