What is WebExplorer Browser

WebExplorer Browser by Better Cloud Solutions Ltd. is another suspicious browser that adds a set of features to improve the browsing experience. It is based on popular open-source platform Chromium and is very similar to the notorious WebDiscover Browser. Unfortunately, it acts like both browser hijacker and adware displaying unwanted ads and promoting new search engine (onesearch.org). This search engine supposedly generates better search results, however, instead of this, it simply redirects users to legitimate Yahoo.com. By acquiring control of your browser, extortionists can gather your data (passwords, history, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc.) and sell them on the darknet. Note that similar applications can be installed as an extension or program in your PC. Whatever the case, feel free to use our guide to get rid of the WebExplorer Browser.
