Do you know what Security Alert is?
Security Alert is an advertisement-supported program. Of course, not all computer users will realize this, because the program is promoted as a beneficial tool. The application is published by Mathematical Applications, and the name of this company is well known to our malware researchers. Finance Alert, Breaking News Alert, and Celebrity Alert are a few other programs that have been published by the same company. The websites promoting these applications are identical, which is why we believe that the apps are controlled by the same people. Unfortunately, this means that you need to delete Security Alert from your operating system. According to our malware researchers, the program is useless, and you will not be safe until you delete it from your PC.Security Alert screenshot

Have you downloaded Security Alert from getsecurityalert.com? The website promotes the worthless application as a beneficial tool that will alert you to security threats and will safeguard your personal information. Can you trust Security Alert to serve beneficially? We think not, and we recommend removing the application instead, because it works as an advertisement-supported program. As you know, online advertisements link to third-party websites, and so they are considered to be a security backdoor. Needless to say, a reliable security tool would never expose your virtual security to different threats. Therefore, it is clear that Security Alert is not a reliable program. Authentic software also would not introduce you to suspicious, unreliable programs. If you have downloaded Security Alert together with unfamiliar programs, you have to remove them as soon as you delete the advertisement-supported program.
The removal of the advertisement-supported software is not always simple. Most computer users uninstall Security Alert from their operating systems thinking that this is enough to delete Security Alert successfully. If other threats and leftover files remain active after the manual removal, you either need to tackle them yourself, or you need to install automatic malware removal software. If you are not experienced with the manual removal, you should install a reliable tool that will automatically delete Security Alert.
