What is Freshy Toolbar?
Freshy Toolbar is a browser extension that belongs to Conduit Ltd. It is compatible with all popular browsers, however, unlike other adware, you need to download the plugin onto every browser separately. There are at least two websites that promote Freshy Toolbar: ct8589.ourtoolbar.com and welcomefreshy.ourtoolbar.com.
Depending on where you download the toolbar you will be presented with different links. In the first case you will be shown links to such sites as softonic.com, freshy123.xanga.com, apps.conduit.com and others. In the second you will see links to Facebook, thefreedictionary.com, and so on. Regardless of which version of the application you have installed, you should terminate Freshy Toolbar without hesitation.
How does Freshy Toolbar work?
Freshy Toolbar is rather similar to other Conduit toolbars like Oscar Delta Toolbar, Connect Toolbar and many more. These programs add little to no value to your computer. They often travel with potentially unwanted applications, so it would not be surprising if together with the toolbar you also installed some kind of adware and Conduit search tools. Unfortunately, the additional software that comes bundled with Freshy Toolbar should not be trusted. It may fill your browsers with third-party ads and expose you to unsafe web content.
Once the toolbar gets installed, you will notice that your home page and default search engine have been replaced with search.conduit.com. The search provider will not show you genuine results. They will be altered to include sponsored links and adverts that may have nothing to do with your query. We do not recommend clicking on the promoted data simply because you can never be sure if it is safe or not. If you do not want to take unnecessary risks, you should get rid of Freshy Toolbar and all that comes with it. The next chapter will explain how you can do that.
