Alexa Toolbar is an Amazon.com browser extension which can be applied to Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers and which has been found responsible for questionable and unauthorized personal information gathering. The toolbar is considered legitimate and, therefore, can be installed from the authentic web page alexa.com; however, it can also be attached to your browser after downloading free bundled software. Even though the application does not appear to be harmful, you should delete Alexa Toolbar and apply a different legal and reliable tool to improve your Internet browsing experience. Please continue reading to understand why using the extension is inadvisable and how you can ensure your system is guarded against any malignant activity.
NOTE: Alexa's toolbar service collects and stores information about the web pages you view. In some cases, information collected by the toolbar service may be personally identifiable, but privacy is important at Alexa, and we do not attempt to analyze web usage data to determine the identity of any Alexa user. […] The software may cause Alexa to collect and store full Uniform Resource Locators, more commonly known as "URLs," for Web pages that you view while using the Alexa Service.
Even though it is possible that Alexa Toolbar developers take great precaution to secure your identifiable data, we do not recommend taking the risk as this could lead to extremely illegal and unauthorized activity linked to cyber crime. If you wish to continue using the questionable application, you need to ensure that your computer is guarded by the latest version of a reliable malware detection and removal tool SpyHunter, which you can download by clicking on the button below.
