Freemium

Freemium, also called Freemium toolbar, is a browser extension which works on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. The toolbar bears the name of a data recovery program for Windows computers, which is said to be capable of recovering your photos, audio files, videos, and so on. The toolbar is Conduit-based and is available at freemiumen1.ourtoolbar.com. However, Freemium may also be bundled with other applications. It does not matter what program you are going to install – you should always read the terms of use in order to become aware of the changes that will be made within the system and on your internet browsers.

Freemium toolbar contains a button which takes the user to freemium.com, amazon.com, and some other websites. It also promotes Value Apps, which are browser plug-ins that monitor the user’s actions on the Internet and provides him/her with related coupons, advertisements, and discounts. Like a majority of the toolbars based on Conduit, Freemium contains an e-mail notifier, a radio player, a button that allows you to see the weather forecasts in your location. If you do not like the functionality that is added to the browsers, remove Freemium from the browser right now.

Another reason why you should remove Freemium from the browsers is its capability to change the settings of the browsers. It can replace your home page and the default search provider of the browsers with search.conduit.com even thought the installation wizard suggests that the home page should be changed to Trovi Search. We recommend that you remove Freemium and restore your former settings because the search engine monitors your search terms and displays sponsored links on the search results page. This type of advertising can be used by any webmaster, which means that you may be provided with a link that takes you to an insecure website, and Conduit is not responsible for the content of the websites to which you are exposed.

Moreover, Conduit search usually provides the user with display ads, which are given on the start-up page. They are likely to be unrelated to your search terms because they are generated in order to drive as much traffic to specific websites as possible. The ads are likely to be provided through ads.yahoo.com.

It is also important to note that Freemium, also known as Freemium EN1, reads the information stored on your browsers. It may modify your bookmarks, track your browsing history, alter your extensions and communicate with other programs.

Note that if you do not read the terms of use when installing Freemium toolbar, you are likely to skip the part which presents Wajam, a browser add-on which alters your search results on various websites so that you can see the links share by your friends on Facebook or Twitter. In order to prevent the installation of Wajam, you have to decline the whole installation procedure.

We recommend that you implement a reputable spyware removal tool in order to remove Freemium. A reliable tool should be able to eliminate the browser extension in question and shield the system from many other threats, such as browser hijacker, adware programs, Trojan horses, and the like. Below you will find our instructions on how to uninstall Freemium, but if you find any difficulties or want to make sure that the unwanted toolbar is really removed from the system, implement the scanner available below the removal guide.
