DailyFunnyWorld Toolbar

What is DailyFunnyWorld Toolbar?

Some threats are malicious in an obvious way. Others do damage silently. Although we do not classify DailyFunnyWorld Toolbar as a severely dangerous infection, it is very suspicious, and it is known that it can do certain undesirable things silently. Since you are reading this article, you might already have decided to remove this suspicious extension, and if that is the case, scroll down to the last section. If you are not sure why this seemingly harmless program has a bad reputation, you want to keep reading. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com malware analysts have reviewed this suspicious application, and it is now identified as a PUP, which is short for “potentially unwanted program.” Why is it unwanted? We discuss this in detail in this report, but the bottom line is that the extension does not offer exclusive services, that it tracks information about users, and that it presents a search tool we cannot recommend trusting. These are the top reasons to delete DailyFunnyWorld Toolbar.testtest

Do you know what DailyFunnyWorld Toolbar is?

DailyFunnyWorld Toolbar was created by Mindspark Interactive Network, which is also the creator of other well-known PUPs, including GiffySocial Toolbar, MyWayNotes Toolbar, WeatherBlink Toolbar, FreePDFCombiner Toolbar, and hundreds of other “toolbars.” They do not actually add a physical bar to the compatible web browser. Instead, every single one of these PUPs hijacks the browser (either via the New Tab page, homepage, or both), and displays an interface of a search engine that appears to display a toolbar at the top. The pseudo toolbar presented by DailyFunnyWorld Toolbar displays “Video of the Day,” “International Jokes,” and “Tools” buttons that give access to 9gag.com, comedycentral.co.uk, timeanddate.com, dictionary.com, and similar websites. Although the PUP displays these links, you can bookmark them to get easy access directly from your browser, and you do NOT need to install anything. To make the interface appear more attractive, links to popular websites, unrelated to memes or gifs – which is the main theme of the PUP – including facebook.com, instagram.com, or booking.com, are added.

Although DailyFunnyWorld Toolbar is advertised as a tool that offers memes and gifs, whether you download it from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dailyfunnyworld/oiedaodjjdfnkfjaphcklblcolefkigc, the official website, dailyfunnyworld.com, or some unknown source, you will get more than you bargained for. Right away, you should notice that the center stage on the toolbar’s interface is given to a search tool. Due to this, it looks like a normal search engine; similar to google.com/search, for example. We mention Google because the search service offered by DailyFunnyWorld Toolbar is, allegedly, enhanced by Google. Do not let this trick you into thinking that you would get the same trustworthy service. On the contrary, you could be exposed to unpredictable third-party links if you trusted search.myway.com. The MyWay search tool is always integrated into Mindspark Toolbars, which is why some researchers suggest that these toolbars are created for the sole purpose of promoting the hijacker. In any case, if you do not remove the PUP and do not stop using the suspicious search tool, information about you and your activity will be gathered, and this privilege might be granted to unknown third parties too. If you do not like being tracked, remove all cookies immediately.
