Commuity 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.
