CryptoPriceSearch Toolbar is a piece of software that some users consciously install on their computers because they expect it to be very useful. We cannot blame those users – this browser extension is presented as software that helps users to “find Cryptocurrency & Bitcoin Information.” Research conducted by specialists working at pcthreat.com has clearly shown that this browser extension is another Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. product, which immediately shows that it cannot be fully trusted. Of course, this is not the reason why our specialists have categorized CryptoPriceSearch Toolbar as a potentially unwanted program, but as our analysts’ have observed, almost all products developed by this company fall into this category. Since CryptoPriceSearch Toolbar is not considered a fully trustworthy application, we do not recommend installing it on the system even though it seems to be a perfectly normal program. No, it is not malicious software, but it might still perform activities you will not like, so if you have not installed it yet, better find another application for finding more information about different cryptocurrencies.
If you click the Add extension button to install CryptoPriceSearch Toolbar, you will allow this potentially unwanted application to read and change all your data on websites you visit, replace the page you see when you open a new tab, manage your downloads, and manage your apps, extensions, and themes. Also, you will see a new page set as your homepage and New Tab. At first, this page looks like an ordinary search provider because it contains a search box, but we cannot call it a reputable search provider because it has been observed that it is powered by Search.myway.com, meaning that it might present some modified search results to users if they enter search queries in its search box. The page set also contains some quick-access buttons leading to popular websites. At the top, you will see such buttons as Bitcoin Basics and Cryptocurrency News. They open websites with the cryptocurrency-related information. Without a doubt, users do not need to have CryptoPriceSearch Toolbar installed to be able to access those websites, so we have some doubts about its usefulness. If you have not found it very useful either, delete it mercilessly today. You should not keep it installed if you are sure you are not going to use it because you will see the page it has set every time you launch your web browser. On top of that, this piece of software will automatically gather information about you. Potentially unwanted programs are not real threats, so they do not record any personal details, but we would still not allow these applications to gather data automatically if we were you.
CryptoPriceSearch Toolbar has an official website (http://www.cryptopricesearch.com/index.jhtml), and it can also be installed directly from the Chrome Web Store, so there is no doubt that some users install it willingly. Of course, we are sure that a handful of people cannot even explain why they have this potentially unwanted program installed on their PCs. According to researchers, Mindspark products are usually spread using two alternative distribution methods. First, they travel bundled with other programs. Second, they are promoted by various pop-ups that are displayed to users when they open certain websites. Do not click on ads promoting software and suspicious links if you do not want to end up with untrustworthy software in the future. In addition, you should start installing new software more carefully. Last but not least, if you want to be sure that you are 100% safe, we recommend having security software enabled on the system too.
You should delete CryptoPriceSearch Toolbar because it is not fully trustworthy software. Also, there is no point in keeping it if you have found it useless or simply do not like how it works. Its removal should not be extremely complicated because it is just a potentially unwanted program, but we have still prepared the manual removal guide for less experienced users. If you are one of them, you should follow it step-by-step. Also, undesirable software can be erased automatically. This is a considerably quicker removal method.
