Whenever program bundling is being employed, Launchpage.org is combined with some other, third-party software that is usually free or cheap. Most individuals believe that Browser Redirect uses some type of stealth installation. The truth is that all pieces of added software installed by the installer are generally specified in the advanced installation setting, yet, since few bother to read them Browser Redirect application installation stays a mystery for most. What users typically do is, they go past this option and select the quick installation instead.

Obviously, Browser Redirect is only problematic if it infects your computer. By steering clear of dangerous internet websites and torrents a wise individual will decrease the potential risks.
