What is YourLocalLotto Toolbar?
Are you an avid lottery player? If you are, programs like YourLocalLotto Toolbar might strike your interest. This particular program was designed by Mindspark Interactive Network, and it should provide links to popular lottery sites. All of this would be great, except for the fact that this suspicious toolbar is much more suspicious, and it does not stop at providing you with what it promises. After doing a little bit of research, it became clear that this program can spy on you and expose you to third-party content, which is not always great. Would we recommend removing YourLocalLotto Toolbar if it were a reliable and useful program? Of course we would not, and you should read the entire article to learn why exactly this seemingly beneficial toolbar has gained bad reputation.
How does YourLocalLotto Toolbar work?
Not all users download YourLocalLotto Toolbar from yourlocallotto.com. As you must have guessed, this is the official download page for the suspicious toolbar. All in all, whether you acquire it from its official site or packaged with other unfamiliar programs, it is very likely that you will be introduced to Ask Search. Have you heard of this search tool? We are sure that you have as it is one of the most popular search providers across the web. Unfortunately, the search tool associated with YourLocalLotto Toolbar could be modified to show sponsored ads, and this is not beneficial for you personally. This is the kind of activity that generates money for Mindspark Interactive Network, not you.
Although you can avoid the unwanted content by eliminating unreliable search tools, it is not as easy to eliminate other risks associated with YourLocalLotto Toolbar. For example, did you know that this program can share the information regarding your activity with third parties? This activity could be harmless, but we do not know this because the parties associated with Mindspark are not disclosed. This is the same risk that the users of FreeMaps Toolbar, VideoConvert Toolbar, and other Mindspark programs will encounter as well. Have you found any of these programs packaged with YourLocalLotto Toolbar? Although unlikely, in some cases, these programs could be bundled together. Needless to say, it can be extremely annoying to have several of these toolbars installed on your browsers because they can take up screen space and might show flashy notifications.
