As cyber-attacks become more complex and difficult to spot, browsing the web can lead users to dangerous sites which can install malicious software onto their devices. To help internet users protect themselves from unwanted software the Slovak cybersecurity company, Eset, has developed a scanner and cleaner - Chrome Cleanup for Google Chrome designed to help users browse the web safely and without interruption.

“Using the internet should always be a smooth and safe experience for everyone,” said Juraj Malcho, chief technology officer at Eset as cited in the press release, adding that Chrome Cleanup addresses unwanted software that can negatively influence a users’ experience on the internet.

Chrome Cleanup will alert Google Chrome users to potential threats when it detects unwanted software. Google Chrome will then give users the option to remove the software. Chrome Cleanup operates in the background, without visibility or interruptions to the user. It deletes the software and notifies the user once the cleanup has been successfully completed.
