BrowserActivityfld is a Mac application known for displaying intrusive ads in the primary browser once it becomes attached. Users cannot control the ad flow, and BrowserActivityfld often causes redirects to various websites without consent, threfore, those affected by this software may mistakenly believe they’re dealing with a serious virus like Ransomware, Trojan, or Spyware. However, while BrowserActivityfld is a nuisance in Safari, Firefox, or Chrome, it’s not an actual virus. Its primary purpose is to generate revenue through various paid advertisements. To achieve this, the software modifies the browser’s homepage and default search engine, redirecting user searches and clicks to sites that pay for promotion, which is a common tactic in many such browser-hijacking applications.

Remove “BrowserActivityfld will damage your computer” from Mac
The following instructions will allow you to remove “BrowserActivityfld will damage your computer” in two ways:
- The manual instructions will allow you to remove it on your own by downloading 2 software suites which will show you the folders the threat is located in. Installing, scanning, and deleting everything will require 1-2 hours of your time, depending on your speed and the threat itself.
Note: If “BrowserActivityfld” has an in-built ability to restore itself on a restart, the manual steps will not prevent that. We recommend the automatic removal.
- Download SpyHunter for Mac (one of the apps used in the manual instructions), scan with it, and if you decide to use the program, it will likely require about 15-20 minutes. This, however, requires an active subscription for SpyHunter, which means either to use the trial version or purchase the software.
1. Download EtreCheck from the Appstore and scan for any “BrowserActivityfld” unsigned files. Delete them. (You can skip this step altogether and download and scan with Spyhunter instead if you don’t want to double-check things).
2. Download and install Spyhunter for Mac. Scan for any malicious files.
3. The app will show you which files are infected. Either use SpyHunter to delete them for you (the automatic removal) or do it manually, which means tracking down each detected location by yourself and deleting the file.
4. In most cases start with /private/var/root/Library/Application Support/.”BrowserActivityfld”/”BrowserActivityfld”
5. In Finder press Shift+Command+G to open the Find window.
6. Search for the /var directory. Then proceed and look for the /root folder inside.
7. It will most likely be locked and you will need additional permissions to meddle with it.
8. Press command+I and scroll to sharing and permissions. Add your user name to permissions.
9. Now you should be able to access the /root folder and proceed and locate the /Library folder inside it. Proceed to do the same until you are inside the /Application Support folder.
