Falco Software Toolbar is an adware-related product created and developed by Conduit Ltd that installs a browser extension that runs with almost all web browsers such as Mozilla, Chrome and Internet Explorer. The Falco Toolbar is created for the purpose of displaying plenty of unwanted commercial advertisements, redirecting users to possibly harmful domains. Once redirected, users are likely to get infected with Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs). Ads by Falco Software Toolbar are not related to the underlying web page and might make your browsing experience rather unpleasant and annoying. Moreover, Falco Software Toolbar might alter your default homepage and search engine, thus displaying manipulated search results.
