What is InboxAce?
InboxAce Toolbar is an adware-type program, which can also be called a potentially unwanted application. No matter that it can hardly pose harm to your computer and data that you add when visiting it, it may infiltrate your computer in a bundle with third party software. If you don't like to monitor installation of the freeware, you can easily end up with the appearance of this program on each of your web browsers. As soon as InboxAce enters the system, it tries to modify computer's settings according to its needs. Usually, it hijacks Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other web browsers, and shows up in a form of toolbar. Besides, it may also try to affect other system settings, such as your start page, the default search engine, the new tab page and other settings. Usually, it promotes MyWebSearch search engine, but you may also be tricked into using ask.com and other search engines. If you want to protect your search engine, you should avoid InboxAce virus. Besides, by using unknown search sites you may start suffering from annoying pop-up ads and redirects to unknown/unwanted websites that are typically initiated by showing people altered search results. This unfair activity has already made many people to start calling InboxAce virus. While this is not true because this program is just a browser hijacker and PUP, we think that you should stay away from it and remove it if it has appeared on your machine without downloading it. While this program is not as dangerous as rogue anti-spyware or ransomware, it that may be used for potentially malicious activities that have already been mentioned previously. Besides, there is one thing that we haven't mentioned. It's its ability to track PC users and their browsing on the Internet. Typically, toolbars can be set to collect information about people's mostly visited websites and data that they add when visiting them. No matter that such data is considered as 'personally non-identifiable', you shouldn't reveal it because you can't know what third parties are capable of using it for their own needs. If you want to remove InboxAce from your computer, we highly recommend opting for automatic removal method and using SpyHunter.
