Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox users download WebBars because they believe this program to be beneficial and reliable. This program is officially introduced to users as a beneficial tool that allows downloading content from YouTube and sharing it via VKontakte and Odnoklassniki social media sites. Additionally, the program is meant to help users create playlists with the downloaded tracks. Because these services are completely free, it is not that surprising that computer users download the program without researching it thoroughly first. Is it important to research this program? Well, all programs you are interested in should be researched prior to installing them, as this could help you evade malicious threats and unwanted activity. Although we do not identify it as a malicious threat, we do recommend deleting WebBars from your operating system as soon as you possibly can.
WebBars can be downloaded from webbars.ru, but it is unknown if this Russian add-on is mainly spread via this official source. In fact, it is possible that more users will download this program via software bundles targeted at those living in Russia. Using official installers can be extremely dangerous; however, third-party installers are even more suspicious and unpredictable because their services are based on different privacy policies. While some third-party installers are transparent regarding the software they carry, malicious installers exist, and they are exploited for the silent distribution of dangerous computer infections. Because WebBars is an appealing program, it is possible that some installers will use it as the main attraction. Unfortunately, malicious threats could be hidden behind this attractive tool, and you might let them it without even knowing it. So, did you install this app along with unreliable third-party software? If you are unsure about this, click the link below to download a free malware scanner that will let you know if malware is active on your operating system and browsers.
When researching WebBars, we have found a few things that are quite disturbing. First of all, this potentially unwanted program injects advertisements, which is why some place it in the adware category. Even though the ads shown to you might be attractive and might offer you alluring services, you should not interact with them. The reality is that every single ad shown to you is a security backdoor because a portal to a third-party website can be opened via it, and it is impossible to predict what could happen if you interacted with these ads. Some of the possible outcomes include encountering malware installers and facing misleading shopping deals that hide scams. Another thing that has been brought to our attention is the hijacking of the browsers. The legal information backing up WebBars informs that Yandex.ru could replace the homepage and search engine of your popular browsers. This search tool is also attached to the bar that appears on the browser along with links to Facebook, Twitter, and other services. This search tool is suspicious, and the last thing you need is it hijacking your browsers.
Although WebBars is not a dangerous, critical threat, it is not a beneficial tool either. On top of that, it might be involved in spying on you, injecting ads, and hijacking browsers. Although users are informed about these activities via the legal information that follows the program, not all users are familiar with this information. On top of that, this kind of activity is not necessarily desirable or helpful. In fact, it could be disruptive and annoying. If you have decided that you want to remove WebBars from your PC and browsers, here is what you need to do. First, follow the manual removal guides below to erase the unwanted app/extension (depending on the browser). Next, install an anti-malware tool to erase any remaining threats and protect your operating system from malware and unwanted apps in the future.
