OPSWAT Toolbar

What is OPSWAT Toolbar?

OPSWAT Toolbar is a Community Toolbar by Conduit that runs in IE, Chrome and Firefox Web browsers. The toolbar collects and stores information about your web browsing and sends this information to OurToolbar so they can suggest services or provide ads via the toolbar. The toolbar will attempt to change the browser's home page and search provider settings during installation (sometimes this is an option provided to the user but is checked by default) and provides a search box and various other generic features in the toolbar. It also may automatically download and install updates without notifying the user. This is a PPI (pay per install) toolbar. For each install and for every month the user whose web browser this is installed into remains installed, the publisher gets paid by Conduit a few cents depending on the country of origin.
