The Segurazo Antivirus, or SAntivirus, purports to be a helpful and legitimate antivirus tool, but in reality, Segurazo Antivirus bombards users with falsely exaggerated scan reports to pressure you into buying the premium version of this app.
Like most Potentially Unwanted Programs or PUPs, Segurazo Antivirus usually gets installed into computers in a software bundle. Users inadvertently install it by clicking on a suspicious pop-up ad, bogus software updates, or as part of a random free software bundle. To avoid this entry point, during a program’s installation process, computer users should always opt for the custom or advanced software installation rather than the default one. That way, you can hand-pick the components you wish to install and opt-out from the ones that have nothing to do with your original purpose.
Once installed, Segurazo Antivirus may display exaggerated scan reports. Those reports attempt to apply pressure on you until you purchase a premium Segurazo Antivirus subscription. This kind of behavior is typical of many potentially unwanted programs that are offered on the Internet, and their purpose is clear — to lead you to believe that your system is compromised.
While past versions of Segurazo Antivirus had a usable Uninstall section that you could use to uninstall the program, newer versions can only uninstall this program in Windows Safe Mode. As of early 2021, dozens of reputable antivirus providers have flagged the Segurazo Antivirus application as either unsafe, a riskware, a hack tool, or a PUP.
