What is entrusted Toolbar?

entrusted Toolbar is a Conduit toolbar (Community OurToolbar) for Intenet Explorer and Firefox. The toolbar collects and stores information about your web browsing habits and sends this information to Conduit so they can suggest services or provide advertising via the toolbar. It will attempt to change your home page and search provider if you are not careful during installation and provides a search box and various other generic features. If the home page and search settings were modified by this toolbar, they need to be manually reverted back by the user if the user decides to uninstall the toolbar. It also may automatically download and install updates without notifying the user. From the EULA: The Application may also collect and store information about your web browsing locally on your device. This locally saved information may interact with the Application and send us information about your web browsing so we can suggest services or provide you ads that may be more relevant to you. Only generalized inferences are passed from the Application to our servers."

The software is typically bundled with third party installers such as Open Candy. "Offer your users the free Entrusted toolbar for fast access to their favorite websites, social networks, web services, and search. Note: Sets homepage, search default, and new tab pages to Entrusted search powered by Bing."
