Commuity Toolbar adwareCommuity Toolbar is a browser helper object that has been classified as adware and PUP by security experts. The add-on reportedly can cause browser redirects to suspicious web locations and collect information about the user’s browsing habits, search queries, and bookmarks in order to deliver various pop-up ads.
Just like other cross-browser ad-supported applications, Commuity Toolbar may disclose the gathered data to third parties for marketing purposes. As a result, the users may receive different spam emails, or in case they have provided their telephone number – even phone calls from telemarketers.

Commuity Toolbar Distribution Techniques

Like many other adware programs, Commuity Toolbar may end up on the user’s computer along with free programs and applications he has downloaded online. This distribution method is called “bundling” and it allows additional installations along with the selected software. The installation of unwanted or unsafe programs can be easily avoided by choosing the Advanced options for the installation of any program on your computer.
