To avoid such extensions like Login to my email, you have to refrain from downloading programs from third-party sources. While this extension has an official homepage at logintomyemail.net, users seldom visit such sites for their extensions. Just like most of the other programs from the Mindspark Toolbar family, Login to my email usually comes bundled with freeware or through various redirects. Therefore, each time you download a program from a third-party source, there is a chance that you will install more than just one application on your computer.
If you go through the installation process carefully, you should be able to avoid adding Login to my email to your browser. However, most of the users breezes through the setup because the process seems so default.

Nevertheless, we have to keep in mind that PUPs often enter target systems accidentally. They also modify browser settings to provide you with “custom” user experience. While these modifications are seldom unauthorized, Login to my email might as well expose you to unreliable commercial content.
The point is that such extensions often promote third-party content because that’s how they survive. And that’s the main security concern when it comes to such apps.
