FreeShoppingTool Toolbar

Posted: October 19, 2018

The FreeShoppingTool Toolbar is a piece of software developed and published by Mindspark Interactive Network, a software publisher linked to the MyWay.com search engine service closely. The add-on in question is meant to help users get the best prices and deals for each day, as well as access to special bargains, coupons, and discounts offered by a broad range of online stores. Although this deal might sound great, the truth is that the FreeShoppingTool Toolbar does not provide any useful information that can help you save money while shopping online.

The primary issue with the FreeShoppingTool Toolbar is that its installation is known to bring undesired changes to the settings of contemporary Web browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. The changes may depend on the type of browser the user has installed:

  • Chrome users may have their new tab page changed to the MyWay.com-hosted search engine.
  • Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox may have both their homepage and new tab page changed to a MyWay.com-hosted search engine

The Web page that the FreeShoppingTool Toolbar promotes is not an unsafe one, and it may provide users with some interesting features on top of the search field. It features a weather widget, links to popular online shopping sites, a to-do-list, and a collection of links to popular social media networks.

If you have installed the FreeShoppingTool Toolbar recently and you are not satisfied with the changes it brought, then we suggest that you take care of its removal, since this is the swiftest way to revert the changes it brought to your Web browser’s configuration.
