If you send or receive parcels frequently, you might think that TrackAPackage Toolbar is a very useful browser extension for you. It offers “simpler and smarter tracking”, and who would not want that? TrackAPackage Toolbar also claims to be an “all-in-one package tracing tool”, so it really makes you feel like it is the perfect thing for you. However, at the same time, it might also potentially endanger your system’s security. This toolbar does not only track packages but also uses tracking cookies to collect information about you and your online activities. There are several issues with TrackAPackage Toolbar that makes it a questionable extension and that is why we advise you to remove it.

TrackAPackage Toolbar belongs to a family of toolbars called Mindspark. These browser extensions are published by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc., and include ListingsPortal Toolbar and RecipeSearch Toolbar among many others. TrackAPackage Toolbar has an authentic-looking official website, trackapackage.net, where you can directly install it from. However, it is always advisable to read the EULA and the Privacy Policy to understand what you might be exposed to once you let this toolbar onto your system. For example, the EULA states that Mindspark products can have various security issues and “should be regarded as unsecure.” If you read the agreement carefully, you will also learn that TrackAPackage Toolbar may collect both personally identifiable and anonymous information about you using different technologies, including submitted or automatically captured information and cookies. If you want to avoid being exposed to potentially harmful third-party links or cyber criminals who might get hold of your precious personal details, we recommend that you delete TrackAPackage Toolbar from your system.

TrackAPackage Toolbar can also enter your system in a free software package and might be bundled with malicious software. So, if you have this toolbar on your system, you might also have other infections. These bundles are promoted mainly on torrent and other file-sharing websites. You need to be very careful where and what you click on these sites because you might easily get your system infected. There may always be a risk of security breach with bundles, if you do not double-check what programs you actually install.

TrackAPackage Toolbar is compatible with all major browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Once it is installed, it will alter the home page and search engine to Ask.com unless you uncheck the boxes in the installation wizard. There is also a chance that clicking on the easy access buttons on the toolbar might redirect you to potentially unreliable third-party websites. If virtual safety is important for you, you may not want to keep TrackAPackage Toolbar on your system.

It is a bit complicated to remove TrackAPackage Toolbar from your computer because it is not enough to uninstall it via Control Panel. Apart from clearing your browsers from the extensions, you also need to take care of the modified home page and search provider. The easiest way to do this is to reset all your browsers to default. If you follow our instructions below, it will be quite straightforward. If you want to make sure that your system is clean and there are no other threats present, you should run a full system scan with a reliable online scanner to detect infections. If you find that your computer is still not clean, you might want to install an authentic malware application that will automatically sort out all your security issues.
