FreeMaps Toolbar is a browser extension that is currently compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome browsers. Although this extension offers original services, it is very similar to such programs as EverydayLookup Toolbar and VideoConvert Toolbar. These applications were created by Mindspark Interactive Network, and they are identified as unreliable. Needless to say, we advise removing unreliable software. If you do not delete FreeMaps Toolbar from your own operating system, you might be exposed to unreliable sponsored links, and information about you could be collected and shared with unfamiliar parties. Fortunately, the removal of this suspicious browser add-on is not that complicated, and we can show you how to eliminate it quickly and efficiently.

The first thing you should ask yourself when you start analyzing FreeMaps Toolbar is how this program entered your operating system, as this could change your course of action. If this program was installed without your permission – which is highly unlikely – you need to remove FreeMaps Toolbar as soon as possible. Of course, it is much more likely that this program was installed with your permission. The official download page is download-freemaps.com/index.jhtml, but it is also possible that it could come packaged with other programs. If this is the case, check the programs installed along with FreeMaps Toolbar to make sure that they are not malicious. If they are, delete them as soon as possible. When it comes to the suspicious toolbar itself, there are a few reasons to delete it as well.

Once installed onto your browsers, FreeMaps Toolbar provides easy-access links to sites that should help you find maps, research traffic, create a to-do list, and check for gas prices. These are all links to third-party sites, which means that they follow different privacy policies, and, even if you check and analyze the Privacy Policy of FreeMaps Toolbar, you cannot be sure that the links provided are trustworthy. This is one thing to consider when using this toolbar. Another thing you need to be careful with is the search provider that comes bundled with FreeMaps Toolbar, Ask Search. Although Ask Search is a reputable search provider, the search results shown via search.tb.ask.com/home.tb.ask.com are likely to be modified. This is the main reason why we recommend deleting this search tool as well.

FreeMaps Toolbar can read your browsing history, change the data on the websites you visit, and even manage your downloads. Even if the tools provided by this browser extension are useful to you, we are sure that you do not need to install any program to find the information you need. If you follow the manual removal guide below, you will delete FreeMaps Toolbar from your operating system and web browsers along with Ask Search. Note that while FreeMaps Toolbar is eliminated from IE when uninstalling this program, you might have to delete it from Mozilla Firefox and Chrome browsers separately. If you are struggling with the removal of this program or other unreliable programs on your PC, our best advice would be to install a legitimate security tool/malware remover.
