What does Rally Toolbar do?
Once the installation it initiated, a toolbar is added to your browser (either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, or both). The toolbar has a search box and a number of Facebook feed buttons. Basically, if you log in to your Facebook account via this toolbar, all of your notifications will be automatically transferred to Rally Toolbar. This raises important questions about security, because it is doubtful whether this toolbar can be trusted with your Facebook credentials. What is more, when the toolbar is installed, your default home page is changed to my.rally.io by default.
