What is SmarterPassword Toolbar?

SmarterPassword Toolbar offers you access to password generator tools for free; however, our malware specialists have discovered that this browser extension is simply a newcomer from the Mindspark family of questionable toolbars. That is why we advise you to be careful with this toolbar, too. Like all the other members of this family, SmarterPassword Toolbar also looks all innocent and maybe even useful to some. But you need to know that this extension might hold some threats to your virtual security. We would not go as far as to call it a dangerous malware infection, but it does have the potential to introduce you to unreliable and uncontrolled third-party content. Therefore, we recommend that you delete SmarterPassword Toolbar from your computer before your problems multiply.

Where does SmarterPassword Toolbar come from?

You can install this extension directly from its official site, But what are the chances of people finding this website? Do you think enough users land there to download this application and make enough profit for the creators? We believe that if a company wants to generate income from an ad-supported free application, then it has to be spread far and wide. Having this website does not strike us as one with major traffic. But no wonder, of course, because, as a matter of fact, SmarterPassword Toolbar is also distributed via freeware bundling.testtesttest
