Note that the installer available at the official website of the add-on contains other programs whose reputation have been tarnished because of redirects and advertisements which appear while browsing the internet. If you install 2YourFace on your Internet Explorer, you may accidentally install Incredibar Toolbar if you do not uncheck specific check boxes. Your home page and search engine will be changed into Mystart.search.com. The same goes for Google Chrome, but if you try to download 2YourFace on Mozilla Firefox, you will be offered to install Claro Toolbar which will change the home page and search engine of all your browsers.
