OnlineMapFinder Toolbar Removal Tips
OnlineMapFinder Toolbar is a potentially unwanted application developed by Mindspark Interactive Network. It has an official page at onlinemapfinder.com where you can download the program. On this page it is described as a tool that will allow you to access map street view, live Earth view images, satellite images, NASA maps and so on.
You will also notice that that the toolbar is powered by Ask and it offers you a web search, home page and default search provider. These search tools is often the main reason computer users want to terminate OnlineMapFinder Toolbar.
How does OnlineMapFinder Toolbar work?
OnlineMapFinder Toolbar works on all popular browsers. It is similar to other Mindspark plugins such as FilmFanatic Toolbar, Utility Chest Toolbar, Zwinky Toolbar and many more. Whether you download it from its official page or it comes bundled with freeware, you can expect that the application will be installed with additional software. If you download the toolbar from its main page, you will be offered to change your browser settings and set home.tb.ask.com and Ask Search as your home page and default search engine. Interestingly enough, this search engine was discontinued in 2011, so you may want to consider if using it is a good idea.
With the arrival of the toolbar, you may also notice an increase in the amount of adverts that you see in your browser. We urge you to steer clear from them as they may very well be misleading or completely fake. If you want to keep your computer safe, you should avoid all ads and sponsored links that appear on your screen. Moreover, the toolbar may also collect information about your browsing habits and sell it to third parties. We suggest that you get rid of OnlineMapFinder Toolbar as soon as you can.
