What is Quiclean?

Quiclean is a browser extension coming to the PC without the user’s consent. This potentially unwanted program (PUP) is not a virus, but it brings many problems. The developers claim that this extension speeds up the browser by cleaning the cache and temporary files, as well as protecting your data from abduction. In reality, it collects information about user data, passing it on to third parties. Instead, Quiclean displays tons of annoying banner ads, coupons, and more. This program can redirect the user to ad sites. Many ads and offers are bait for users because the Quiclean was created in order to make money. In addition, the program significantly reduces the performance of your browser and PC. Do not risk the safety of your private information. Remove Quiclean right now.
