What is the EasyEmailSuite Toolbar? And how does it function?
EasyEmailSuite Toolbar is a dubious browser toolbar or browser extension developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. This toolbar is available to all popular web browsers via its official page at Free.easyemailsuite.com, as well as in the Chrome Web Store at Chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/easyemailsuite/ifbgbfdfdgfngigejacbmmkeklfahmka. It is advertised as an all-in-one login application in reading and writing emails.
This browser toolbar grants several privileges to System user like read and alter information on visited websites, manage download applications, themes and extensions as well as read and modify your browsing history. However, majority of malware researchers classified it as both a browser hijacker and a potentially unwanted program due to its stealthy installation and harmful effects. This kind of extension is designed by cyber crooks to boost the web traffic and earn money online. The question is, how does it do it? It boosts web traffic by delivering you with never-ending ads – some of these ads can get pretty intrusive and may even lead you to suspicious websites. And by delivering these ads, it increases the crooks’ chances of gaining profit through pay-per-click marketing.
In addition to these ads, this toolbar also has the ability to monitor and track your online activities to gather information about you. This boils down to customized ads and personalized ads which you might be tempted to click as they match your preferences and interests. But no matter how tempting the ads can be, you should be careful in clicking them for they might only redirect you to malicious web pages that might contain malicious programs or viruses.
How is EasyEmailSuite Toolbar distributed online?
This toolbar is distributed on its official site at Free.easyemailsuite.com and on the Chrome Web Store. You might think that it’s a legitimate program just because it has an official site and it’s also distributed on a legitimate site, however, that’s where you’re wrong – just because it has two official distribution sites doesn’t mean it’s not harmful, take on account all the scenarios given above and according to our researchers, this toolbar is packed along with other free software together in a bundle. This kind of distribution technique is common among browser hijackers and unwanted programs. And even though there are legitimate programs in the bundle, there are also unwanted ones as well. So when you go on installing the bundle without reading its EULA and only opting for the standard or quick installation method, then you’ll end up installing all the programs in the bundle. If you’re really find of using freeware, it would be much better if you install them using the Custom ad Advanced installation setup which allows you to get rid of the extra baggage in the bundle. Plus, it also wouldn’t hurt if you read legal documents like EULA before installing anything.
