Do you know what Safe Browse App is?
Everyone wants to browse the web without facing risks, and there are many programs that promise to help users evade these risks. Safe Browse App is one of these programs, but it is not one you can trust. First of all, this program is spread using software bundles, and this is a security loophole that can be used to infiltrate malicious programs. We do not know if this ad-supported program will be bundled with legitimate programs because different installers could be employed, but we have to consider the possibility that malicious programs could come packaged as well. If that happens, you will need to delete Safe Browse App together with all other threats. The removal guide below will help you get rid of this browser add-on, but we recommend reading the entire article.Safe Browse App screenshot

Safe Browse App is a clone of CantMissCoupons, Majestic Coupons, Pricechomper, and similar ad-supported programs. All of these programs have download pages (e.g., safebrowseapp.com), but none of them offers a working installer. In fact, they do not need to work because Safe Browse App and its clones are successfully distributed by third-party installers. Our research team warns that software bundles could hide hijackers, potentially unwanted programs, and malicious programs. Even if you download adware with seemingly harmless software, you might have to delete it because it could expose you to different security issues. Safe Browse App itself is not considered to be a malicious threat, but you must delete it to avoid ads that could open security backdoors. Unfortunately, these backdoors could allow much more dangerous threats to slither in.
The suspicious Safe Browse App can show all kinds of advertisements, including banners, coupons, pop-ups, pop-unders, and even video-targeted ads. Most users are annoyed when the videos they want to watch are interrupted by advertisements. Interstitial ads are annoying as well because they open up in new browser windows or tabs, and they are impossible to ignore. Even if the ads are attractive, we are sure that you will come to a point where you will want to remove Safe Browse App just to disable the irritating ads. Of course, if you interact with these ads, you could encounter different security threats, which is another reason to delete Safe Browse App. All in all, this ad-supported program is not a reliable security tool, and it deserves removal.
You can remove Safe Browse App directly from browsers, or you can leave this task up to automated malware detection and removal software. The latter option is not only more convenient but can also help you eliminate the infections and unreliable programs that are active on your PC alongside adware.

In non-techie terms:
Safe Browse App deserves removal because it is an advertisement-supported program, not the security tool it claims to be. According to our research, deleting Safe Browse App directly from the browsers should help users get rid of this adware. Unfortunately, we do not know which other threats or how many of them could be active on your PC. If you are unsure about this as well and you want to keep your system protected in the future, install an automated malware remover/security tool.
