Browser extensions can be included in freeware installers as a ‘recommended’ offer. However, by quickly going through the setup process, you may have skipped the option to un-check it. Description is a toolbar that may have taken over your browser without your approval. The extension offers direct links to Gmail, AOL, Yahoo, Outlook, Hotmail, and Google Maps. It may seem like a useful browser utility but it may endanger your personal information and it may affect the safety of your browsing activities.

To evaluate the threat level of the toolbar, we have revised its Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. Shortly said, by using, you have agreed to the service providers’ terms and privacy that include:

  • Data collection – personally identifiable and non-identifiable information is captured.
  • Tracking technologies may be used – persistent cookies, beacons, etc.
  • Data sharing – collected data may be shared with third parties.
  • Third party content – third party links, offers, and ads may be included in the browser.

However, what is most troublesome is the following:

→Your Instant Email™ stores Anonymous Information and Search Data in a database on Your Instant Email™ computers. These computers have security measures, such as a firewall, to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under Your Instant Email™’s control. Notwithstanding such measures, Your Instant Email™ cannot guarantee that its security or privacy protection measures will prevent its computers from being illegally accessed and the data on them stolen or altered.

What the upper quite means is that the user data base is not protected in the most efficient way possible. As a result of the insufficient protection your information can be stolen or altered. Once your personal information is obtained by crooks, there is no way to tell the future. Just keep in mind that stolen personal information can be used in a variety of online scams (personality theft is just the tip of the iceberg).


If you haven’t installed yourself, your system may have been infiltrated by unwanted software. As we explained in the beginning, bundled installers are often at fault for the distribution of adware and browser hijackers. The latter may not be real PC viruses, but they are often responsible for a bunch of problems:

  • Browser redirects to predefined pages.
  • Browser misbehavior and crashes.
  • Display of unwanted advertisements.
  • Display of fake updates and fake system alerts. Removal Options

To avoid further damage, you shouldn’t take things lightly. Many users ignore issues related to their browsers, and end up having their systems infected with malware. What our team of researchers advises you to do is remove the toolbar manually by following the steps below, and then running a full system scan. Professional AV software will detect and eliminate all threats caused by and any related unwanted programs.
