WebInternetSecurity removal instructions

What is WebInternetSecurity?

The WebInternetSecurity application claims to protect users whilst surfing the Internet by warning of suspicious sites and blocking dangerous content. WebInternetSecurity is developed to work with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox, and while its initiative to protect Internet users from malware infections is valid, this application has some downsides. For example, it displays unwanted online ads, which computer users may find difficult to remove. Furthermore, it is unclear which company is responsible for developing and supporting this product. Another downside of WebInternetSecurity app is that it tracks users' Internet browsing activity by recording URLs visited and search queries entered within Internet search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.) This information can be personally identifiable, and therefore, the presence of this add-on on your system may lead to serious privacy issues and identity theft. To protect your computer and browsers from potential threats, choose trusted antivirus and anti-spyware programs. Inadvertent applications installation can occur when users install free software downloaded from the Internet, and since WebInternetSecurity is ad-supported, it may be bundled with free software for monetization purposes.
