Remove WebDefence adware

WebDefence is a fork of the Chromium Browser based on Google Chrome, identical to WebNavigatorBrowser. WebDefence is installed using adware bundler software, meaning it is most likely installed without the consent of the user.

WebDefence is usually recommended on the internet as a helpful browser by intrusive pop-ups that are associated with adware applications and advertising networks.

However, in reality, WebDefence is a browser that collects all kinds of browsing data from your browser settings and installs a toolbar in Microsoft Windows.

The web browsing data collected by the WebDefence adware is used for advertising purposes. The browsing data is sold to advertising networks. Because WebDefence gathers browsing data from your browser, WebDefence is also classified as (PUP) Potentially Unwanted Program by malware investigators.


WebDefence will install itself in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10. No operating system protection such as Windows Defender notices this Chromium-based browser as dangerous.

Remove WebDefence

  1. Open Windows Control Panel.
  2. Go to Uninstall a program.
  3. Click the “installed on” column to sort the recently installed applications by date.
  4. Select WebDefence by WebDefence software and click Uninstall.
  5. Follow WebDefence uninstall instructions.

Thank you! You’re a lifesaver. I was checking out an old link and I guess they stole it and redirected me to the website. I had no idea what it was but I had a bad feeling about it and now it’s gone. Thank you again.
