What is SkillExplorer?

SkillExplorer is a potentially unwanted application that may end up on your Mac and corrupt settings of Safari, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox web-browsers. As a result, your browser will be filled with obnoxious advertisements such as pop-ups, video ads, banners, in-text ads, and so on. In addition, it can initiate the automatic download and installation of other unwanted programs. In addition to this, it may replace the primary search provider of the browser with a fake one in order to provide users with altered results. The only way to avoid such a scenario is to completely remove SkillExplorer from your device. You should be able to do this without too many troubles by following our instructions below,
