DNS Keeper

What is DNS Keeper?

If you think that DNS Keeper will enable you to access websites that are for some reason blocked by your country, then you are in for an unpleasant surprise. This program will not do the things that it claims to do, and that will become obvious once you try accessing a blocked website. We recommend that you remove DNS Keeper, because it has been created for the single task of showing commercial ads. Since this application is deceptive in nature, it would be appropriate to get rid of it as soon as the opportunity arises. But, before we get to that, you should get to know more about this program.testtesttest 100% FREE spyware scan and

Where does DNS Keeper come from?

DNS Keeper has been developed by GreenTeam Internet Ltd. This developer is largely unknown to us, because this program is only GreenTeam’s second release. Not so long ago we also analyzed DNS Keeper’s clone, called DNS Unlocker. So, if you are thinking about installing or have already installed any one of these programs, you should know that they are one and the same. The company has its own dedicated website at Greenteamdns.com. However, this website does not work normally, because some subpages are inaccessible. And you might not even know what the website is all about, since it has no mention of its “products.” However, additional information about DNS Keeper is provided on Vidpot.tv.

We do not know how this application is disseminated, but we have a hunch that it might be distributed using software bundles, since there is no information that would indicate that DNS Keeper has its own download website. DNS Keeper might be bundled with legitimate applications and put up for download on mainstream freeware distributing websites, or it might even be bundled with malware and distributed using piracy websites.

How does DNS Keeper work?

It is true that some Internet service providers and even governments block particular websites with the intent of denying people access to certain information and content. However, there are many applications designed to bypass these restrictions, but DNS Keeper is not one of them. Allegedly, this program should unlock blocked websites for free, although they conveniently try to weasel out by stating that not all websites can be unlocked, so you could not accuse the developers of not keeping their promises.

Unfortunately, DNS Keeper displays commercial advertisements, mainly on online shopping websites, such as Walmart. This program is capable of showing various coupons, banners, search-related ads, and so on. Most of the ads should have labels, such as “ads by DNS Keeper.” And it seems that displaying ads is the application's main purpose, since it cannot unblock any websites.

How do I remove DNS Keeper?

You can uninstall DNS Keeper via the Control Panel, but it will not stop displaying commercial ads. So you will have to perform individual removal steps or leave it to an antimalware scanner to do the job for you. You should not attempt to do it yourself if you are an inexperienced PC user. If you are a novice, we recommend that you use a malware removal tool, such as SpyHunter, that will delete all DNS Keeper-related files.
