FindFormsNow Toolbar is a product of SaferBrowser, which the experts classify as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). FindFormsNow Toolbar contains both helpful and annoying features, so every PC user should decide on his own whether keeping this application is worth it. FindFormsNow Toolbar is expected to help you prepare your tax documentation. FindFormsNow Toolbar offers fast access to various tax forms, including Form 1040, Form W-9 and Form W-4. In theory, this function should save you some time. However, you prepare this sort of documents only once per year, so the rest of the time this toolbar may offer you no benefits. What is more, you can always set up bookmarks towards government sites that host these files. The main reason some PC users don't appreciate this software concerns the changes that it may cause to the Web clients. FindFormsNow is ad-supported, so after it enters you may encounter rather persistent pop-ups, banners, interstitial ads or videos. This PUP may not modify your default browser solely. It may affect all present Web clients, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. FindFormsNow may change your homepage to an untrustworthy search provider. You should never use such unknown search platforms because they may transfer you towards third-party partner sites, some of which may be unsafe. The commercial materials that this PUP injects have the same purpose. Some of the coupons and vouchers may seem relevant to your recent search queries because FindFormsNow may track some of your online actions. For the mentioned security concerns, it will be better not to follow the sponsored links. Some users note that the ads by FindFormsNow may have a negative impact on the browser's performance. You may experience sporadic freezes, crashes or bugs. In case you did not download this PUP from its official site, FindFormsNow Toolbar probably entered in a software bundle. Scanning your machine with an advanced anti-malware solution you can delete FindFormsNow.
