PasswordLogic Toolbar is an annoying and useless toolbar from the notorious Mindspark family. Unfortunately, this toolbar may present to you potentially unreliable web content through its third-party services, which can cause security-related issues for your operating system. That is why we keep categorizing these toolbars as bad toolbars. Mindspark is infamous for its dozens of questionable toolbars; therefore, you should not hesitate to remove PasswordLogic Toolbar as soon as you notice it in your browsers. Since this browser extension affects all of the major browsers, you will be forced to be exposed to it whenever you launch Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer as well. This infection does not only change your home page setting, but it also sets int.search.myway.com as your new tab page. You should not trust any of the services this bad toolbar offers you. If you continue reading our article, you will also understand why we are so determined about this.

This browser extension tries to sell itself as a useful tool that offers you access to password generator tools from its toolbar as well as a search tool. You can find its official web page at passwordlogic.com. We have found that this domain is hosted on 74.113.233.180 IP address, which is located in the US. As a matter of fact, we have realized that there are plenty more Mindspark products on the same server, including allin1convert.com, bibletriviatime.com, and convertanyfile.com just to mention a few out of the dozens of domains. But what do you think the chances are for you or any computer user to find this web page? Not too much really; even though this tool is also available in the Chrome web store at this URL: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/passwordlogic/ddfllphoddcaolpbfcjkomijignoeflk?utm_source=inline-install-disabled. Nevertheless, based on our experience, we certainly know that this bad toolbar, true to its family, mainly spreads in bundles containing malicious software installers.

This simply means that it is quite possible that you do not even remember downloading or installing this toolbar because you may have wanted to install a different free program. However, you ended up with a bunch of malware programs instead. It is a very general thing in fact, and this is how most users infect their precious PCs with malware. Hundreds of thousands of computer users are searching for free software every day. That is why the web is swarming with fake and shady file-sharing websites run by schemers. These sites, including torrent and freeware sites, mainly generate income from promoting third parties through advertising. But these third-party ads are most often rather misleading and unsafe to click on, not to mention those sites that are infected with malicious banners that can run a code upon the page loading, so you do not even need to click on any content to download malware.

Therefore, we recommend that you avoid visiting such sites and clicking on ads. This way you may be able to prevent such malicious bundles from landing on your machine. However, it is possible that the damage is done already, and you let a whole package of “nasties” on board. This is a typical case when deleting PasswordLogic Toolbar will not get you too far; you will need to scan your computer for other potential infections as well. You need to understand that your PC will not be secure again until you eliminate all the threats.

When you install this toolbar, you are usually offered an opportunity to opt out of the browser changes it makes by default, namely, that it sets a modified int.search.myway.com as your home page and new tab page. It is worth mentioning that Mindspark bad toolbars have been using ask.com as a third-party search tool, which has also been set as the default search engine, but it seems that the newer versions do not affect that setting. Unfortunately, Mindspark does not take any responsibility for the third-party services it offers; therefore, it is possible that you click on a quick link on the toolbar, and on the page you get redirected to, you will find targeted third-party ads. You may also find such ads and sponsored links in the modified search results you may be shown when using the search tool. Even if int.search.myway.com claims to be powered by Google, you should not trust the results because potentially harmful links and ads may be hiding on the page. Clicking on such content may lead you to malicious websites. That is why we suggest that you remove PasswordLogic Toolbar before it is too late.

Since the uninstaller of this bad toolbar does not take care of the browser setting changes in all of the browsers, we advise you to reset all your browsers after uninstalling PasswordLogic Toolbar via Control Panel. Please follow our instructions below if you require help with these steps. If you prefer automated solutions, we can recommend you a reliable antimalware application called SpyHunter. This security tool has proved to be effective against all types of malware. Keep it updated for full protection. As a matter of fact, you should also keep all your programs and drivers up-to-date in order to make it more difficult for cyber criminals to gain access to your files and operating system if it is not yet protected by a professional security application.
