Have you ever heard about Browser Gloss? If not, you should know that it is not good to have it on your computer. This browser ad-on has been created by the well-known SuperWeb LLC, which is notorious for SnipSmart, Zippy Zarp and a bunch of other similar applications whose are meant to improve your browsing activity. Though, the facts about Browser Gloss talk different. The official website of Browser Gloss is browsergloss.com, however, despite the fact that there is a download button for the application, no installation file is available on it. In this case, one can easily assume that SuperWeb has been distributed via bundled software. Usually, this happens when you install some other program on the system as its installer contains additional software. Similarly to other advertising-supported programs, Browser Gloss promotes third-party advertisements. Due to this characteristics, the application has been categorized as malware and should not be kept on your computer. Otherwise, you may experience security-related issues.
The commercials provided by Browser Gloss include web banners, in-line advertisements pop-ups, interstitial adverts, etc. However, these commercials are neither monitored, nor endorsed by SuperWeb LLC, meaning that the creators of the application do not take responsibility for the third parties’ activities. So, if you install Browser Gloss on your computer, you automatically accept the terms provided in the setup wizard and everything that might follow. Though, if you want your browsing sessions to get back to normal, you should remove Browser Gloss as soon as possible.
Keep in mind that all the ad-supported applications can monitor your web activities. This means that Browser Gloss is also capable of recording your clicks, impressions, search terms, browsing history, time spend on different websites, and other anonymous data which can be obtained from your web browsers. Despite the fact that the purpose of Browser Gloss is not to reveal your identity, some personally identifiable information may still be recorded by the application in order to provide you with some customized commercials. The only way to terminate the adverts is to uninstall Browser Gloss from your computer.
You can try to delete Browser Gloss manually, however, you should perform a full scan of the system to check whether there are any leftovers on your PC after that.
