Screen Dream Toolbar is a browser extension that offers access to “exciting new trailers.” Thus, if you are looking for such content daily and want to be able to access it faster, the extension might sound perfect for you. However, we do not think that reading an application’s description is enough to decide whether you should install it. Specialists recommend learning much more details before making the final decision. If you are ready to learn more about this browser extension, we invite you to read our full report. In it, we talk about the plugin’s possible distribution sources, its functionality, and its deletion. Keep in mind that we provide removal instructions too, so if you want to erase Screen Dream Toolbar from your browser, we recommend checking the steps located below this article.
Screen Dream Toolbar falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs and like many other tools belonging to this category, could be spread through pop-ups, unreliable file-sharing websites, and sources alike. Therefore, if you do not want to download such tools, we advise you to stay away from doubtful websites as well as carefully research tools that you are interested in.
To decide whether a program is trustworthy and worth installing you should read not just its description but also find out more about its developers and read both expert and user reviews. For example, this plugin is said to be a product of APN, LLC, but its End User License Agreement explains that the organization is now called Ask Applications, Inc. Most importantly, the document mentions that the company’s previous name was also Mindspark Interactive Network Inc. To our researchers Mindspark is known as a creator of potentially unwanted programs since many of the organization’s tools that we encountered fell under this category in the past.
Furthermore, users should know that Screen Dream Toolbar might require a few permissions that some users might not want to give. For instance, the potentially unwanted program might ask to let it view your browsing history. Data in browsing history might be anonymous or, in other words, not sensitive, but some users might not want applications to gather it. As you see, browsing history could show your visited websites, clicked ads, search keywords, and other data that could be used to determine what you are interested in and what kind of ads you might be tempted to click.
We do not say that Screen Dream Toolbar will necessarily use your browsing information to show you tailored advertisements, but there is a chance that it might. As for the access to movie trailers that the extension ought to provide, it seems the application does so by placing a toolbar below the address bar that contains links to websites containing trailers and content alike. If you decide you do not want Screen Dream Toolbar, you could bookmark links to websites containing trailers to access such content just as fast as you would with the extension after you erase it.
If you decide to delete Screen Dream Toolbar you can do so manually or with a chosen antimalware tool. Users who want to try to erase the potentially unwanted program manually, but do not know how to do it, could use our deletion instructions located at the end of this paragraph. They demonstrate how to erase the unwanted plugin from the only browser that it is currently compatible with, which is Google Chrome. Of course, if you prefer the second option, we advise installing a reliable security tool. Perform a full system scan and you should be able to remove Screen Dream Toolbar and other identified items by pressing the displayed deletion button.
