Motitags Toolbar

Motitags Toolbar is a browser extension for Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The application is available at and Chrome Web Store. In order to get the browser extension working on the three Internet browsers, it has to be installed separately on each of them. The toolbar is owned by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc, which is famous for its interactive browser toolbars featuring various emoticons. Motitags Toolbar is also said to be powered by 4 different, uniquely designed emoticons, which works on Gmail, Outlook, AOL mail and Yahoo mail. However, the emoticons are not the only features of the browser extension. The toolbar also has an email notifier and allows you to access more smileys. It is also important to note that Motitags Toolbar is powered by Ask. It means that if you do not uncheck two boxes when installing the application, the home page and the search provider of the browser is change to, which may be one of the reasons why you may like to remove Motitags Toolbar from the system.

More specifically, the home page of the affected browser is changed to, whereas the search engine is changed to Ask Web Search. The startup page contains 14 links to popular websites, including Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, eBay and Instagram. Unlike some other search providers, the new home page does not contain annoying advertisements; however, some sponsored links can be found on the search engine results page. If you want to prevent insecure websites, you should ignore the sponsored links. Not all of them are insecure; however, there is always some risk of being redirected to a corrupted website. The search engine is not responsible for the content of the websites that are being advertised, so everything depends on you. If you want to restore your former settings, remove Motitags Toolbar from the browser and change the settings of the browsers.

    Why are these programs allowed when they are known to be *****ociated with spyware, malware etc., The Internet should be safe to use for all, without having to peruse every little piece of information before you can download what is purported to be an innocent program.
