What is GiffySocial Toolbar?

Even if you want to see random GIFs every time you open the new tab page, GiffySocial Toolbar is not an extension you want to install. It is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer web browsers, but it is important to note that Internet Explorer users install it as an application, not an extension. In any case, the app takes over the new tab. Considering that the services of this application/add-on are not the most beneficial, we classify it as a potentially unwanted program. The good news is that PUPs are easy to delete. All you have to do is find the right extension entry and uninstaller, and we can help you with that.

How does GiffySocial Toolbar work?

GiffySocial Toolbar can be downloaded from or the Chrome web store (at the time of research, the installer was not available). It was created by Mindspark Interactive Network, and so our research team is not surprised by the representation. Most toolbars created by the company – including LearnTheLyrics Toolbar, EverydayMemo Toolbar, and MyWayNotes Toolbar – have official websites and are available via the Chrome web store. On the other hand, they are also spread using unreliable installers, and they can be promoted using annoying pop-ups and advertisements. Therefore, we always recommend that users install malware scanners to inspect their operating systems if they have downloaded any Mindspark toolbar. What should you do if you discover serious threats that require removal? Without a doubt, you want to delete them, but do not forget about GiffySocial Toolbar. Even though it is not classified as a malicious threat, you might want to get rid of it, and there are several reasons for that. First of all, the PUP records information and shares it with third-party advertisers, whose ads might be shown via the search tool.

Below that, you can find a search field, which redirects search queries to MyWay is a well-known search engine that is used by all Mindspark toolbars. The search service is powered by Google, but the results shown can be modified, which is why we cannot recommend trusting or interacting with them. Below the search, you can find links to popular sites, such as,, or At the bottom, you are shown GIFs. Although the easy-access to the sites you are, most likely, familiar with, as well as the GIFs that are shown might make GiffySocial Toolbar seem quite beneficial, you must not forget that it has introduced you to a potentially unreliable search engine, and it also can spy on you and share data with unknown parties. In our eyes, this is why you should delete the PUP.
