If you download this toolbar from the official website at appbario.ourtoolbar.com, then you will be in complete control of the installation process. During the installation you will be asked whether you want to change your default home page and search engine to search.conduit.com. Therefore, Appbario toolbar cannot change your default browser settings unless you let it to. However, even though this browser plugin is not a computer virus, it is a potentially unwanted application, because it displays links to third party websites that can be corrupted.

It is developed by Conduit Ltd. and it comes with a customized search bar that users can use for their searches without opening a new tab for their default search engine. Appbario Toolbar also comes with an Internet radio app and other additional features that ought to improve overall browsing experience. However, it also displays third party advertisements, some of which that various errors have been detected on your computer and you need to click "HERE" to fix these errors.
