It looks like CryptoPriceSearch Toolbar is distributed through Chrome Web Store page. Plus, it might be spread with bundled software installers that users could come across while visiting various file-sharing web pages.

As said earlier it is targeted at users who wish to learn more about cryptocurrencies or access various tools like finding crypto coins or searching for prices faster. The truth is CryptoPriceSearch Toolbar cannot provide the mentioned content since it is actually provided by the web pages it bookmarks for the user, so as we said earlier you could easily find such sites on your own and drag them to your bookmarks bar to save them. Besides, providing a toolbar the potentially unwanted program may change your default search engine, homepage, or new tab. What you should know about these changes is the newly presented search engine could be called search.myway.com.
