Do you know what MySafeProxy is?
MySafeProxy is a potentially unwanted application that gets installed onto target computers together with other unreliable software. For example, it is known to travel bundled with Snap.do, BoBrowser, SpeedChecker, MyPC Backup, etc. In other words, MySafeProxy enters your system when you download software from unreliable web sources. It would be in your best interests to remove MySafeProxy from the computer immediately. Although this application is not a malicious computer infection, users should not utilize programs they did not download and install themselves because it might cause various security problems.
One of the major reasons we cannot consider MySafeProxy a malicious infection is the fact that it has a main homepage via mysafeproxy.net. Granted, this website does not provide us with the direct download link and that is suspicious, especially as the program tries to pass for a useful tool. However, a genuine computer security threat would not manifest itself at all. Thus, MySafeProxy is more of a nuisance than a dangerous application.
Information provided at the main homepage claims that MySafeProxy is a free application that can protect your IP address from hackers and spammers. It will also make your web surfing sessions completely anonymous, and your shopping data will be secured. It says that once you install MySafeProxy, a so-called “tooltip” will appear in your browser, and it will let you enable SecureBrowsing.
Truth be told, there is nothing wrong about hiding your IP address, especially if you want some anonymity online. The question is though, whether you can really trust MySafeProxy with it since you clearly did not plan on having this application, and it arrived bundled with a number of potential system security threats.
We strongly recommend that you remove MySafeProxy from your computer. It is not hard to do because this program has an uninstall entry, so you can remove it manually via Control Panel. While you are at it, scan your system with SpyHunter free scanner, to see what other unwanted applications have been installed on your PC. Some of them may not even be present on the list of installed programs in Control Panel.
You have to terminate all the potential threats immediately, and then protect your system from harm. The best way to do it is to invest in a licensed antispyware application that would automatically run periodic system scans. Also, you should stay away from third-party websites that distribute software because programs from unofficial websites are often bundled with unnecessary and sometimes even dangerous additional applications.
