WebmailWorld Toolbar overview:
WebmailWorld is a toolbar that is described as a useful utility to instantly reach e-mail and popular social media websites instantly. It also claims that it provides a search engine; however, you should not trust this program just by reading the description that was written by the developers of it. It is believed that this program provides a search engine that might display sponsored search outcomes that can cause unexpected redirects. Besides, this toolbar might send annoying pop-up ads or banners to you. Such activities can significantly slow down the computer system.
Take note that once it enters the computer system, WebmailWorld may affect Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and other web browsers by installing its extension to them. This extension replaces your homepage with home.tb.ask.com search website that may show up as your default start page, whereas search.tb.ask.com may emerge as a default search provider.
Some of the WebmailWorld redirects MAY pose a risk to your cyber security since websites to which you may be rerouted may be filled with questionable content. We believe that is why the developers of this program warn users with such statements:
MS Products may provide access to search results or other links to Third Party Partner websites or resources. MS has no control over such sites and resources […] You agree to accept all risks associated with the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy or completeness of such Content. Under no circumstances will MS be liable in any way for any Content created by or originating with entities other than MS […] MS Products and any information you download or offer to share by means of an MS Product, may be exposed to unauthorized access, interception, corruption, damage or misuse, and should be regarded as insecure.
Now, this statement clearly states that WebmailWorld might collaborate with third-party websites and share information about you:
For example, if you click on an advertisement, you may be taken to a website that we do not control. These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect information, from you and, in some instances, provide us with information about your activities on those websites.
We can hardly see any use of this program as it seems to be created only to advertise questionable web sources. You can keep this program if you want; however, we advise you not to do so. To find out how to remove it, continue reading on page 2.
How can WebmailWorld hijack my computer?
WebmailWorld Toolbar developer provides an official download link for this program on the software’s official website. However, some security experts claim that this toolbar MIGHT be spread via bundled software packs. We cannot guarantee that it is 100% true, but we still want to share information with you how to prevent installing optional applications when installing free programs.
- Download software only from secure web sources and install it safely;
- Avoid selecting Default or Custom installation settings. You should always opt for Advanced/Custom method;
- Deselect the suggestions to install unknown software.
Recently, the developer of this program contacted us asking us to remove this post from 2-spyware.com website. We believe that we shouldn’t do that as long as programs that we offer for the removal of WebmailWorld toolbar can detect it and help users to remove it from the system. As it is mentioned under each of download buttons, we ARE affiliated with these anti-malware programs, and while some of them are free, others can remove a virus only after purchasing them. These mentions fully fulfill each of the requirements of FTC.
Nevertheless, we have recently decided to make a revision of this and other posts that are related to this developer. We claim that all of them are described properly.
