How does the SearchMe toolbar by Spigot work?

Similarly to other browser extensions that add smart bars below the address bar of the browser, SearchMe provides computer users with quick access to popular social networking platforms and shopping websites. The toolbar features links to Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, Google+, and a search box enabling you to use the Yahoo! search engine. The same websites can be accessed without the SearchMe toolbar if you customize the bookmark toolbar of the browser. The only shortcoming of browser bookmarks is that they do not open the selected websites in pop-up windows, which would enable you to continue browsing the underlying website.

It is also important to mention the SearchMe browser extension installs another browser extension called Start Page. This extension inserts a new search box into every new browser tab. Start Page is distributed by other programs too, including the YTD toolbar, which is another product of Spigot.

After installing the SearchMe toolbar owned by Spigot, two toolbar update processes are launched at every Windows startup, and these processes are Application Updater and Search Settings.

Even though the browser extension SearchMe is not aimed at stealing your personal information, it is advisable to remove it from the PC because by collecting non-personally identifiable information, it may obtain some information concerning your identity.
