What is FreeSoftToday?

The program freeSOFTtoday will install an opensource or legitimate bundled software program or one that is typically commercial with a limited trial offer in exchange for the user consenting to install an offer such as a web browser toolbar or extension that will hijack the user's home and search pages. Please note, there is minimal user consent so if the user does not read the full terms then they will be unaware what this package is doing.

From the Terms: "During the install process, you will be given an option to allow the extension to become your default search engine and/or your default home page. If you consent to make it your home page, it will become your default home page that will appear each time you open your Internet browser. If you consent to make this your default search engine, your Internet browser default search engine will be set to SaveDaily Deals. You will be using the web search services when you enter queries in your browser search box, when you enter queries in your browser address bar, and when you enter misspelled, incorrectly formatted, or unresolved DNS submissions in your browser address bar."
