Metacrawler toolbar is a browser plugin which is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari. It claims to be a very useful toolbar; however, you should not trust it entirely because it tends to bring various advertisements which might lead you to potential threats and it is rather privacy-invasive. Besides, it might change your homepage and default search engine to Conduit Search if you do not carefully read and mark the installation preferences.

One of the main features of this toolbar is the fact that it might show you commercial advertisements, for instance, best deals which will, supposedly, help you save money and find the most suitable items. Even though these ads look rather useful, we do not recommend clicking on them because Metacrawler toolbar is not responsible for the content of the websites to which you might be redirected, which means that you might end up on the website with a malicious content. In addition, if you use the search engine of the toolbar, you will soon notice that the results might be provided together with different advertisements. Even though the search results are brought by Google, Yahoo!, and Yandex, you should be still careful.

You might recognize Metacrawler toolbar from several features. For instance, if you use the search engine which you can find at the left side of the toolbar, you will definitely notice that it is i.search.metacrawler.com. In addition, there are such icons as Radio, Links, Feeds, and Message. If you see them, there is a huge possibility that you have installed Metacrawler onto your computer. You might have downloaded it from its official website or it might come bundled with other freeware.

Furthermore, Metacrawler toolbar might violate your privacy. As it states in this Privacy policy, this software might collect your browsing data, for instance, the web pages that you have visited and the content you have accessed. Also, information about your search activity is collected. All this information might be shared with third-party applications. The main reason is to offer you more customized information and services or, for instance, to provide you with advertisements that would be more relevant for you.

If you decide to remove Metacrawler toolbar from your computer, you can use manual removal instructions which we have provided especially for you! However, we advise that you scan your computer with a reliable antimalware tool. As there is a variety of tools nowadays, it is difficult to pick out one.
