This week we made some important changes to how we detect browser modifiers and adware. These changes are designed to better protect your browsing experience.

We have already blogged about the changes to the behaviors we detect as adware. I will explain the changes to our browser modifier detections below.

Our objective criteria has all the details about how and why we detect unwanted software.

Unacceptable behaviors


There are two new browser modifier behaviors that we detect:
  1. Bypassing consent dialogs from browsers that ask you if you want to install browser toolbars/extensions/add-ons.
  2. Preventing you from viewing or modifying browser features or settings.
