PasswordBox Toolbar is a browser add-on that is compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. It is a legal tool recommended by a big number of computer users. The only reason why it could be considered a potentially unwanted program could be the possibility of PasswordBox Toolbar being bundled with freeware. However, that does not happen often, but in case you had no intention of having PasswordBox Toolbar on your computer you can simply remove it via browser settings. If it arrived bundled with freeware, it is the additional applications you actually should be worried about.

The browser plug-in itself seems to offer a really useful function – if you create an account it helps you to store your passwords and other personal information. Based on the information available at passwordbox.com, you can “access and manage your digital assets, anytime, anywhere, on any device.” These days you can set your browser to remember your password, but in case you do not want to keep such information within your browser, PasswordBox Toolbar offers you a more convenient and perhaps safer option.

As you can already tell, you can easily download PasswordBox Toolbar at passwordbox.com and install it on Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. The application may also come with other add-ons, such as AVG Toolbar, for example. AVG had announced on their blog that the PasswordBox was added to AVG Toolbar last October, saying that it is a useful plugin that can help you remember and store complicated passwords.

If the PasswordBox Toolbar on your browser has a Control Panel entry as well, then there is a great chance that it is not the official PasswordBox, and you have installed a freeware application that only makes use of the name, and pretends to be something it is not. If that is the case, then you definitely need to remove PasswordBox Toolbar from your computer manually and then reset your browser settings to default, because this potentially unwanted program might have collected information on your web browsing habits.

In case you are not sure whether the PasswordBox Toolbar you have installed on browser is safe or not, you should run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner. This tool detects all potential threats and informs you about it immediately. It is also possible that you have other dangerous files or programs on your system and you simply do not know that.

Do not hesitate to invest in a powerful computer security tool if need be. After all, your system security should be your utmost priority. Also, if you have any further questions on PasswordBox Toolbar or how to avoid similar applications from entering your PC, leave us a comment in the box below.
