Where does QuickFlightTracker Toolbar come from?

This browser extension belongs to a huge family of potentially unwanted application. We call them the Mindspark Toolbar family. Usually, these browser extensions come with a specific function that should make your web browsing more convenient. However, deep down all of them are the same, and they exhibit the same behavioral patterns.

Since these applications have official websites, we cannot say that they infect target computers. Like most of its predecessors, QuickFlightTracker Toolbar comes with an official homepage as well. You can visit it via quickflighttracker.com, but the website does not offer a lot of information on the toolbar. There is only the button that can add it to your browser (and it works!).

Nevertheless, most of the users get this application via different means, and that is when they get confused as to why this extension is on their browsers. If you often visit websites that display a lot of commercial advertisements or if you often download programs from file-sharing websites, you might encounter random pop-ups that offer additional software. This is when you need to be CAREFUL about what you click because you might add QuickFlightTracker Toolbar to your browser without even realizing it. Hence, your web browsing habits are just as important in ensuring your system’s security as the antispyware program that you use.

What does QuickFlightTracker Toolbar do?

The extension does not do that much. Its official purpose should be quite obvious from its title. It says that the extension should help you track the flights closest to your location. The extension comes with a button that is called “Get Flight Status,” and if you click it, it starts searching for flight schedules up to two weeks in the future. It is very likely that the extension merely uses the Google search engine to provide you with these results, so the question is whether you really need a third-party application when you can perform the search yourself.

What’s more, QuickFlightTracker Toolbar also comes with additional buttons like Find Directions that redirect you to Bing or Google maps. The extension also has shortcuts to such popular websites like Gmail, Facebook, YouTube, and so on. You can see these buttons because it changes your default search engine and your homepage setting the moment you add it to your browser.

This is actually the most annoying thing about this toolbar. If you are not aware of the fact that you add it to your browser, it might seem as though you have been attacked by a browser hijacker. However, once again, we would like to emphasize that users AGREE to add QuickFlightTracker Toolbar to their browsers, but they might not be aware of that.

Our main security concern associated with this extension is the fact that it could be exploited by a malevolent third party. Of course, that is the worst-case scenario, and it does not occur very often, but you should not take your chances. If you do not need this application, simply remove it today.
