What is WebNavigator Browser

WebNavigator Browser is the name of a web browser based on Chromium (an open-source browser project developed by Google). Note that WebNavigator Browser is categorized as adware, which means it can display promotional ads, coupons, links, and other socially-engineered content to spread unwanted software. The research also shows that it can use accessed capabilities to spectate and gather personal data entered alongside browsing. Moreover, it is necessary to mention that WebNavigator Browser redirects users through the legitimate Yahoo.com search engine to generate illegal traffic, similar to the activity of browser hijackers. Unwanted software like WebNavigator Browser can cause a lot of issues regarding privacy or even identity threat. This is why it should be removed from your system to prevent misuse of personal data by third-party figures.

How WebNavigator Browser infected your computer

Usually, cybercriminals make it as easy as it is. They analyze the market of websites focused on freeware software and negotiate to bundle their own programs as additional offers. Such a method is famously known as “bundling”, being the simplest and most profitable way to earn illegal cash. Whenever users opt for the installation of free/pirated software, they risk installing extra and unwanted programs without consent. This happens as a result of missing “Advanced” or “Custom” sections, which are essential when running a setup of third-party software. So make sure you get in there and uncheck these offers from the list. On top of everything mentioned, you should also avoid clicking on ads scattered around the web, because they can contain redirects leading to doubtful/malicious pages. Always follow these rules to minimize the risk of getting infected by such programs. If you do not have enough will to keep up with the rules, there are certain tools that will help you sustain it when surfing through the web. For example, Ad Guard will prevent you from opening potentially dangerous content. You can download it and more tools in the article below.
