Easy Radio Access is a browser toolbar, which is very similar to MyRadioAccess Toolbar. The specialists classify both of these applications as Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs). Although they may have some useful features, these toolbars may come with a range of highly annoying side effects. Ultimately, installing them is not worth it, according to the majority of PC users and experts. As you may suspect, Easy Radio Access should give you access to various online radio platforms. You may reach them via the links that appear in the toolbar. However, these sites are neither owned not supported by SafeBrowser, which is the company behind Easy Radio Access. The meaning of this is that you can open third-party Web pages free or bookmark them, but you don't need the PUP for this task. Since many PC users will decline to install the toolbar exactly for this reason, the developers of Easy Radio Access may use another distribution method in addition to direct downloads. They may include the executable file of their product into the installers of other free programs, which is perfectly legit. If the users don't read the details or use the 'Quick' guide instead of the detailed 'Advanced' one, they may agree to run the PUP without having any clues. The mentioned side effects of Easy Radio Access may consist of various commercial elements that the application injects straight into your browsers. No matter if your default browser is Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer, you may find disturbingly large quantities of pop-ups, banners, transitional ads and videos. They may disrupt the smooth functionality of your Web clients. At the same time, the ads are not safe as they may sometimes point you towards compromised sites. To keep your PC stable and secure, you should get rid of the Easy Radio Access Toolbar.
