SocialDownloadr Toolbar

Even if you are a constant Facebook user we can assure you that SocialDownloadr Toolbar is definitely a program you can live without. The application’s creators claim it can download entire albums from your profile, but maybe they do not know that Facebook members can do the same with a few mouse clicks while logged in. Also, you should know that the toolbar would change your browser settings without any permission, and it comes with an unreliable search engine. One could only wonder who would want such a useless and uncontrollable tool. It would be advisable to delete the program from your system, before anything bad happens. Consequently, we are adding removal instructions that you can find below the text, but if you want to learn more before erasing it, you should continue reading the article.

SocialDownloadr Toolbar Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement documents state that the application and the official website belong to HTTO Group Ltd. As we checked the company, we have found out that it is a software publisher located in Tel Aviv, Israel. Also, it is known as a primary unwanted programs distributor, so you can not consider it a reliable developer.

Some users come across socialdownloadr.com website and get convinced that the toolbar has lots of useful features while others download it with unrelated applications. The latter scenario happens when you download freeware from suspicious file sharing websites. As you launch the installer in one of the setup wizard’s steps, you could be suggested to allow SocialDownloadr Toolbar to be installed too. In most cases, users do not notice the proposed software as they rush to launch the desired program, and that is one of the main reasons why unwanted applications get installed. In order to avoid it, you should carefully read the information in the setup wizard, download programs from trusted websites and always learn about software from other sources than their official websites, e.g. user reviews on forums, etc.

After the installation process is completed, the toolbar appears on your browsers. It can affect Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. In addition, it should alter your browser settings by changing your homepage to its official website and your preferred search engine to search.socialdownloadr.com, without any consent. As we mentioned before, the search engine provided by the application is suspicious because of the promoted unreliable third-party websites. Our researchers have noticed that search.socialdownloadr.com can inject the results with ads that could lead you to harmful web pages, or they could promote similar toolbars, adware applications, browser hijackers, and other unwanted software developed by unknown publishers. Such programs are capable of connecting to the Internet without your permission; also, they can update or download more components that you do not want. If you fear that you might have downloaded more unwanted programs, you can open Control Panel and check if there is any unfamiliar software, but it would be better to scan your computer with a security tool, which would find and delete it automatically.

The toolbar does not seem useful at all, as you can get the same result without it. If it were impossible to download your albums from Facebook while using its tools, then you could consider keeping the application. In this case, deletion is an obvious choice if you want to protect your computer and keep it clean. SocialDownloadr Toolbar can be removed either manually or automatically. The second option would be much easier and for that you should invest in a legitimate and reliable antimalware tool, which would erase the toolbar and protect your system from various threats in the future too. If you want to try the manual removal, you can take a look at the instructions we have prepared below. Also, do not hesitate to leave a comment here or on social media, and we will try to answer your questions as soon as possible.
