What is ShieldPlus?

ShieldPlus looks like a very useful application because it promises to protect the settings of your browsers and do not let other suspicious programs change them. “Enjoy your browsing experience the way you want!” is the motto of this application; however, it does not seem that it has been published to serve you. The researchers of have implemented a research and found out that ShieldPlus is just a typical advertising-supported application. Thus, its main purpose is to drive traffic to different websites and advertise various products. The program is very similar to Browser Guardian.

How does ShieldPlus act?

Many people believe that ShieldPlus protects their personal settings and might even help them to avoid unreliable websites. Unfortunately, the truth is that this program will just show advertisements on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. It does not differ from other adware programs, which is why we recommend being extremely cautious. You should not click on any ads labeled as “Powered by ShieldPlus”, “Brought by ShieldPlus” or “Ads by ShieldPlus” because they might take you to unreliable places. ShieldPlus itself is not responsible for your safety in any way, which is why you should carefully think whether it is worth keeping this program on the system.

Advertising-supported applications might do a bunch of other suspicious activities behind your back. On top of the distribution of commercial ads, they are interested in non-personally identifiable details. It means that such information as your IP address, search queries, and browsing history will be known for the publisher of ShieldPlus and third-party advertisers. In order to find out how the program is going to act, we advise you to real EULA and Privacy Policy before the installation. If it happens that you do not like some features of the program, it is better not to install it on the system.
