Add-ons or extensions are additional software programs you add on your existing programs to make your work easier. There are useful add-ons such as pop-up blocker or ad-blocker, it is use to block certain content when you are visiting certain sites.

However, as technology is constantly evolving, some developers are exploiting this feature of your browser; some are making add-ons that steals your personal information, some add-on installs third party plug-ins which changes your browsers homepage without your permission.

Not only that, InstallSafe also monitors newly installed extensions on your browser, therefore, you will be able to see extensions that installs without your permission and remove them quickly.

Additionally, InstallSafe will notify you once there is a newly installed application on your computer system. If a certain program would automatically install by itself, you can quickly remove it.

I hope this article helps you!
