Safe Monitor is a browser add-on, which belongs to the same company as Search Donkey. According to its official site, this program is dedicated for showing tracking cookies for the user when he/she begins surfing on the Internet. However, in most of the cases its creators use unfair distribution methods that can hardly be noticed by PC users. Besides, this adware can be set for other activities, not only for showing tracking cookies – it can also initiate browser's redirections, display annoying pop-up ads and record browsing history. Some users complain that Safe Monitor causes slowdowns on their browsers and redirects to insecure websites. Please, don't click on its ads and uninstall Safe Monitor if it has infiltrated your computer without any kind of permission asked.
HOW CAN I GET SAFE MONITOR ON MY COMPUTER?
As it has already been mentioned, Safe Monitor can be downloaded from its official site but it can also get inside the system in a bundle with other softwares. In most of the cases, it relies on freeware and shareware, so you should be very careful when downloading such programs on your computer. As soon as it gets inside, Safe Monitor leaves its add-on on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other web browsers, and begins tracking the user. Besides, it may also show different kinds of pop-up ads that may easily redirect you to unknown websites. To sum up, Safe Monitor is not malicious as malware, but we don't recommend leaving it on your computer, especially if you haven't installed it from its site.
