Falco Toolbar

What is Falco Toolbar?

Falco Toolbar is a 'Community Toolbar' from Conduit, which integrates with major web browsers including Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. The toolbar is an ad-supported program that is designed to display advertisements within the program itself, modify the browser's home page and search settings in order to capture web search traffic as well as collect and aggregate usage information and statistics. The toolbar is typically bundled with 3rd party developer programs in order to help monetize free (and some paid) software. During installation, the user might be given the option to modify the home and search pages, however this is often checked by default and overlooked. Should the software be removed from the user's PC, the settings will need to be manually reverted back (see details below). The company, based on the EULA, will automatically download and install remote updates as well as collect and store details about the user's web browsing activities and store it locally on the PC in order to interact with the toolbar application to suggest additional services or provide more targeted advertising. "By Using a Conduit Software you may enable Conduit to access, use and collect a variety of information, both personal and non-personal, regarding your Internet Browser, your browsing habits, and information about your computer."


The primary executable is named InstTracker.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. It also bundles additional software in the form of the Conduit Engine, which installs a potentially unwanted toolbar, and makes homepage and default search engine changes to a user's web browser. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 2.11 MB (2,213,152 bytes).
  • Integrates into the web browser
  • Built on and distributed using the Conduit toolbar
  • Injects advertisements unassociated with the underlying web page
  • Hijacks the web browser's home page
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
  • Remove Falco Toolbar with Reason Core Security.
