You-Bar is a legitimate browser add-on, which has been recently involved to a group of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). Officially, this program was created to enhance people's interaction with various websites. Practically, it works on showing continuous ads and disrupting people's browsing. By displaying its ads on different websites, You-Bar seeks to make users visit related sites and earn the money from their promotion. So, if you see continuous notifications from this program, you should ignore them because they can hardly be trusted. In addition, you should check your PC for You-Bar and remove this application. Be sure that leaving this program on your computer won't add any real value for your browsing routine. Even more, these commercial notifications may force you to visit an insecure website and may make you install malware.


You-Bar is mostly spread in a bundle with freeware and shareware, so you can download this program on your computer when installing such applications as PDF creators, download managers and similar freeware. However, we must also warn you that some people were tricked into downloading this app instead of fake browser updates and Java downloads. If You-Bar enters computer, it immediately affects all web browsers that can be found on computer. After that, it starts displaying its ads, initiating browser redirections and casing other issues.
