SavePass Smartbar

SavePass, or SavePass Smartbar, is a browser extension which is compatible with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, and which adds a toolbar to Internet Explorer. The SavePass Smartbar is developed by PinWid Ltd, which is the owner of browse-search.com. The SavePass browser extension is distributed by bundled installers, which you can encounter if you like using browser plug-ins which display coupons, price comparison information, and other advertisements. One of the sources of the SavePass is the server cdn.download4desktop.com, which hosts various adware programs. If you are already familiar with the characteristics of the SavePass browser extension and want to remove it from the computer, get to the end of the review to learn how to remove the unwanted program.

The SavePass toolbar offers computer users various links, including links to Twitter, Facebook, eBay, and weather forecasts. This toolbar also features an email notifier, a radio player, and a search box. If you already have your favorite websites bookmarked and do not want to use the SavePass Smartbar, you can easily remove it from Internet Explorer.

The SavePass browser extension is powered by Snap.do, a search engine which is promoted by a browser hijacker. The browse extension can change the home page and search engine to Snap.do, which provides computer users with third party advertisements. The first encounter with advertisement occurs once you open the browser because some display advertisement, or web banner, is displayed on the startup page. The search engine does not own those advertisements and do not endorse third parties by displaying those ads. If you click on startup advertisements, you do it at your own risk. The search engine promoted by the SavePass Smartbar can also provide you with sponsored links which are displayed on the search engine results page, and if you do not want to risk your privacy, you should fix your browsers as soon as you can.

The SavePass Smartbar is not a computer infection but it can be removed from the computer SpyHunter, which is a spyware and malware removal tool. It is possible to uninstall the browser extension and restore the former settings manually, which you can do using our removal guide, but our team recommend using SpyHunter. The recommended security tool can fight off Trojan horses, rogue anti-virus programs, adware programs, rootkits, and other unreliable security tool.

In case you decide to implement SpyHunter, bear in mind that the SavePass Smartbar is detected as the Muvic Smartbar because these two applications share the same files. If you have any questions regarding the removal of the unwanted extension or the search engine Snap.do, feel free to leave your question in the comment box.
