Do you know anything about the applications which come bundled with ConnectSo Toolbar? Wajam is a social search engine which requires you to login via Facebook or Twitter accounts. If you do not want the suspicious application interacting with your social networking accounts on your behalf, we recommend that you decline this product when you are offered to. What about Search Protect? This is another application which you can decline by unmarking a box asking whether you wish to install Trovi Search. This add-on can collect information relating to your web browsing, which is why we do not recommend trusting it.

If you activate these plugins, they may access, collect and use personal information, and this may be used to present virtual coupons hiding links to other suspicious and unreliable services. Note that these could be installed alongside Quizulous Toolbar, Guffins Toolbar, and other Conduit browser plugins as well.
