About Sense?

Sense is a browser extension that may fall under the category of potentially unwanted software. Its primary function is to modify the home and search page settings of users' browsers, along with displaying advertisements. This extension is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Firefox. In addition to adding an extension to the browser, the software runs various background processes. One of these processes ensures that the toolbar/extension or search settings cannot be easily removed or changed, while another periodically checks a remote server for updates.

Multiple virus scanners have detected malware in Sense.
