MyRadioAccess can be downloaded from their website myradioaccess.com. However, most users may install this toolbar unknowingly by installing other free programs, it is combined with. Usually, it is included in one of the installation steps with text, similar to ‘Include MyRadioAccess as a free extra!’ or a separate installation step with a button ‘I Agree’.

Some of those were the managing of user downloads, apps, extensions and themes and also reading and changing user browsing history.

Once on the computer, MyRadioAccess changed our homepage with int.search.myway.com custom search engine. It is famous for its use of tracking cookies, which may collect different user information, such as IP Address, Location, user search history. The toolbar worked. However, it had to open three pop-up windows to get us to actual live radio stations. Those were based on our location, and we managed to be able to listen to some radio stations. However, all the other buttons on the toolbar had third-party links to other websites.

MyRadioAccess may not be directly dangerous to the computer, however while using it we noticed some advertisements on the radio pop-ups that redirected to third-party sites. Third-parties for such PUP applications may be dangerous to the computer in several ways, main of which are:

→-Download malware on the PC.
-Prompt the user to enter different information. (Surveys, Registration for a prize, etc.)
-Display fake PC problems with tech support numbers.
-Prompt for financial info.

These may be the main dangers in regards to suspicious third-party sites. However, cyber-criminals are continuously working on creating new methods to obtain information from the users.
