Where does ThePresidentSays Toolbar come from?

This browser extension actually comes from the MindSpark family, and we have dealt with many other applications from the same group. For instance, we have recently posted about OnTargetYoga Toolbar, PresidentialBuzz Toolbar, ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar, TaxCenterNow Toolbar, and many others. If you check out the previously released descriptions, you will see that most of those applications look very similar. They also exhibit similar behavioral patterns, and some of those patterns are clearly undesirable. However, if ThePresidentSays Toolbar is really very similar to other programs from the MindSpark family, how come users still manage to install it on their computers?

Here we need to make an emphasis that this application is not a malicious infection. It means that users download and install it willingly, and ThePresidentSays Toolbar cannot enter the target system unless users allow it to. What’s more, the program has an official homepage, and you can access it through thepresidentsays.com. On the website, you can find more information about the program. However, it does not inform users about security issues and only says what the toolbar will provide them with. On the other hand, the download button works just fine, so we have no complaints about that.

Users would also say that they have never accessed the official homepage for ThePresidentSays Toolbar, and they have no idea how this application entered their computer. That is understandable because the direct download is not the only way for this program to reach users. Potentially unwanted programs often get distributed in software packages, and so it is very likely that you downloaded ThePresidentSays Toolbar in software bundle with some other application. If you have recently installed a freeware application from a file-sharing website, you must have added this toolbar to your browser back then, too. It is a very common occurrence, so there is no need to be surprised about it. The bottom line is that users do download and install this extension themselves.

What does ThePresidentSays Toolbar do?

According to the official website, the extension modifies the default browser in a way that users always have the Twitter fee of Donald J. Trump, the president of the United States of America, on their screen. While some may find this a pretty useful (or entertaining) option, the truth is that the extension also changes your default homepage and search engine settings, and some users may find it somewhat intrusive.

We have to remember that when your default homepage changes to search.myway.com, ThePresidentSays Toolbar also starts monitoring your online activity. The program is very likely to employ tracking cookies to collect information about which websites you visit and what search keywords you use. This information can be used later on for online marketing purposes, so do not be surprised to see a lot of commercial advertisements that seem to be catering to your likes and preferences. While it might seem useful, danger also hides behind it because you can never know what kind of content will be embedded in those ads. ThePresidentSays Toolbar, after all, does not review the third-party content it promotes.

How do I remove ThePresidentSays Toolbar?

All in all, it would be for the best to remove ThePresidentSays Toolbar from your system, and you can do it on your own. Please note that the removal process for each browser is different, but it is not complicated.

After manual removal, you should scan your computer with a security tool because there might be more unwanted programs on-board. As mentioned, such application usually come bundled in one single package, so please make sure that your computer is safe and clean once you get rid of ThePresidentSays Toolbar.
