OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar

What is OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar?

OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar is an extension that is offered by Mindspark Interactive Network. This company has also created DigiSmirkz Toolbar, MyCalendarPlanner Toolbar, Everyday Manuals Toolbar, and hundreds of other applications of this kind. Are these toolbars malicious? They are not, but they are classified as potentially unwanted programs because they come packaged with MyWay search tools that not all users are likely to be happy about. Also, the toolbar could be introduced to users via third-party installers, and so they might acquire it by accident or without understanding how it works. All in all, malware researchers agree that while you can use the toolbar to your advantage, there are reasons for deleting it as well. If you are curious about this, you might want to read this report. Note that we have created a guide that shows how to remove OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar as well, and if you want to get rid of this PUP right away, you can move straight to the guide below.testtest

How does OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar work?

The official website representing OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar is, but, as we mentioned, third-party installers might be spreading this potentially unwanted program as well. While we are confident that the PUP works in the same ways regardless of where you install it from, malicious installers could use it to conceal more dangerous threats, and you have to be extremely cautious about those. Please scan your operating system immediately to check whether or not you need to delete any additional threats. If the malware scanner discovers serious infections, you might want to consider removing them first because the toolbar is not dangerous per se. In fact, some might argue that this application is not harmful in any way. Well, let’s say you install it onto Google Chrome. When you begin the installation, a pop-up message shows up indicating that the program can manage your downloads and extensions, as well as read and modify your browsing history, as well as the data on the sites you visit. Needless to say, these are pretty suspicious privileges that the seemingly harmless add-on demands.

When you install OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar it might change the homepage, default search provider, and new tab, but the way this PUP manifests depends on the browser you use. For example, on Chrome, it only takes over the New Tab page. The toolbar represents links to sites that can help you find maps, as well as provide you with information regarding traffic, weather, gas prices, etc. Additionally, easy-access links to popular websites (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, Amazon, or Target) are displayed as well. That is not what we want to focus on. Instead, we want to bring your attention to the MyWay search tool because it uses the modified Google search engine to introduce you to “Ads.” Do you want to face advertisements whenever you browse the web? Considering that ads can be misleading and malicious, we are sure that you want to avoid them. The best way to do that is to delete OnlineRouteFinder Toolbar.
