What is GoGoData Toolbar?

GoGoData Toolbar is an ad-supported (users may see additional banner and in-text link advertisements) cross web browser plugin for Internet Explorer (BHO) and Firefox/Chrome (plugin) and distributed through various monetization platforms during installation. The browser extension includes various features that will modify the default or custom settings of the browser including the home page, search settings and in some cases will modify Internet Explorer's load time threshold, place a lock file within Firefox to prevent competing software from changing its settings as well as disable the browser's Content Security Policy in order to allow for cross site scripting of the plugin.


It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. The primary executable is named GoGoTray.exe. Many users end up uninstalling this after less than a month of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 7 files and is usually about 1.33 MB (1,395,370 bytes).
