Safe Saver

Safe Saver Description


Safesaver (an independent program from the similarly branded Safersaver) is a Potentially Unwanted Program and an add-on to your Web browser. Examinations by malware experts failed to detect any threatening components or behavior related to Safesaver, but Safesaver may include advertising functions that may have adverse results on your browser of choice. For PC users who haven’t installed and used Safesaver intentionally, removing Safesaver typically should be considered the preferable option, for letting your browser load safely and with the best possible performance.

Saving with Safesaver whether You Want to or Not


Safesaver is a new addition to the bulk of advertising add-ons that may install themselves through bundles with other products. In some incidents, these bundles may include other forms of adware in addition to Safesaver, such as the ironically-named Adsblocker program. Safesaver and related advertising programs may modify Web pages as your browser loads them, allowing their related adware to inject extra advertising content.

Advertisements by Safesaver software may include both text-based links, as well as banners, pop-ups and other graphical elements. Safesaver markets all of its advertisements as ways to save money through coupons and time-limited bargains. Nonetheless, malware experts note that it’s unlikely that Safesaver advertisements may provide superior savings relative to intelligent usage of search engines.

Meanwhile, Safesaver’s additional advertisements may increase your browser’s loading times or cause other, unforeseen issues with your browser’s performance.

Web pages forced to load Safesaver advertisements may behave unpredictably, as a result of the new content that they weren’t meant to host.

Getting a Safer Browser than One Saddled with Safesaver


Whereas legitimate shopping software should allow you to uninstall it easily, Safesaver sets itself apart as a Potentially Unwanted Program by blocking common uninstall procedures, such as via your Windows Control Panel. Any browsers modified by Safesaver automatically should be capable of reversions after deleting Safesaver with anti-malware software. This software also should be capable of detecting any other unwanted program with the same installation date as Safesaver.

As usual, the installation techniques preferred by Safesaver and other adware focus on methods, such as bundling with other applications. In the past, malware experts have found that certain free software websites and popular torrent downloads are common sources of adware bundles. However, the involvement of threats never should be discounted, until you’ve scanned your PC to confirm the lack of Trojan downloads and similar threats. Individual files from suspicious sources also should be analyzed to detect Safesaver installation bundles before Safesaver can modify your browser. Because of its relatively recent identification, malware researchers have yet to confirm all of Safesaver’s potential browser compatibilities. Mac and Windows browsers, such as Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer, are estimated to be at the biggest risk of being forced to load Safesaver advertisements.
