What is Softonic Toolbar?

Softonic Toolbar is a browser add-on which is powered with a variety of options that enable a computer user to perform multiple actions. For example, the toolbar enables you to check your email, translate, listen to the radio online, check weather forecasts, etc.  Softonic Toolbar may also refer to a toolbar which is installed along with the applications downloaded from Softonic, which offers a lot of applications for Windows, iPhone, Mac , Android, etc.

How are the browsers altered?

If you have downloaded a Softonic application and found that your browsing tools such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer are not operating as usual, it is likely that they have been modified by the application which was attached to the installer. Have your home page and search provider changed? Do you get irrelevant search results? If so, than you should remove the add-on associated with Softonic.

Very often, browser plug-ins which are bundled with free programs generate advertisements. For example, you may be unknowingly redirected to unwanted websites or receive pop-up advertisements offering to acquire some product or service. This happens with the help of browser helper objects, tracking cookies, etc, which monitor your browsing behavior so that third-party companies can produce the contents that match your interests.
