FoodBuzz

FoodBuzz is a browser add-on which generates various recipes while the user is browsing the Internet. The recipe or some food-related information can be displayed on any website. The application highlights words related to food, cooking, healthy diet, and the like. It is available at foodbuzz.net, and it works on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. FoodBuzz can also be bundled with freeware, so if you have acquired this application by mistake, do not wait – remove it from the computer right now.

FoodBuzz is an ad-supported application, and it can generate banners, search pop-ups, pup-unders, not to mention in-text advertisements. The advertisements are quite obtrusive because there is more than one advertisement generate at a time, and their number depends on the content of the website or your search terms.

The ads that are generated by FoodBuzz are not related to the website you are on; which means that if you access the site which usually does not serve ads but you are provided with some pop-up or in-text advertisements, it is a sign that some security measures should be taken. The ads contain the label FoodBuzz, so you will easily recognize them.

The advertisements that are provided by third-party are not controlled by FoodBuzz, which means that all your purchases and other actions on the third-party websites are your own responsibility.

As regards the installation of FoodBuzz, on Internet Explorer it is installed as a browser helper object, whereas on other browsers it is presented as a regular browser plug-in. If you install the browser add-on, you allow it to access your data on all websites.

Like any other free browser add-on that generates some contents on the browsers, FoodBuzz records your search queries, the details of the operating system, the IPs of the websites you visit, and your clicks, which is being done to provide you with more relevant advertisements.

Are you ready to remove FoodBuzz? Below you will find our instructions on how to uninstall the application and remove the browser add-on from Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. No extra actions are necessary on Internet Explorer because the unwanted browser helper object is removed automatically.
