Browser app changes the default, managed, and provided search engine, homepage, and browser shortcut of internet browsers that it infects. This causes internet browsers to start-up on unwanted websites and redirect to unwanted websites when a user opens a new browser window, opens a new browser tab, or uses the browser or omni bar for web searches.

Browser app adware is also known to bundle alongside third-party PUPs and malware, including additional adware and browser hijackers like Cinema-Plus and can also be used to accommodate third-party items. This means that it may be necessary to remove third-party applications in order to remove ads by Browser app and stop unwanted browser and system symptoms.

This program may also bundle with very dangerous trojan horses depending on the point of contraction and setup operating of manually installed software.

Once installed, this program and associated items will collect user information used to display targeted advertisements by use of browser helper objects (BHOs). add-ons, and extensions. Information collected includes complete browser activity and history. This program can also modify browser settings such as bookmarks and shortcuts.
