MapsEasy Toolbar

MapsEasy Toolbar Description

The MapsEasy Toolbar by AVSoftware, Ltd. is promoted as a tool that gives you easy access to maps, driving directions, traffic reports and weather forecast within the comfort of your new tab page. The MapsEasy Toolbar by AVSoftware, Ltd. functions as a browser extension that is available for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Web surfers can find the MapsEasy Toolbar at Chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mapseasy/dhbfhdlbkkndcdocnoejneopgjkkodnf and Mapseasy.net. PC users can add the MapsEasy Toolbar to their Internet client for free and benefit from its services without paying a dime. However, MapsEasy Toolbar is classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that is developed with the support of advertisers. These people may have access to your downloads log, Internet history, the list of browser add-ons, themes and apps. When you proceed to install the MapsEasy Toolbar it requires the following privileges:

  • Read and change all your data on the websites you visit.
  • Read and change your browsing history.
  • Manage your downloads.
  • Manage your apps, extensions and themes.

Cyber security analysts add that the MapsEasy Toolbar is not listed on the official add-ons platform at addons.mozilla.org and Firefox obstructs the installation of the MapsEasy Toolbar by default. Also, the MapsEasy Toolbar is programmed to change your new tab page to Scoutee.net/mp?p=t&m=ff&c=me&s=me, which is powered by a custom version of Bing. You may find links to trafficland.com/map, terraserver.com, terraserver.com, blackbookonline.info and yahoo.com/news/weather/ at Scoutee.net/mp?p=t&m=ff&c=me&s=me, which may provide useful resources. However, users can't change the default search engine on Scoutee.net/mp?p=t&m=ff&c=me&s=me and might not like that advertisers have access to their online history, downloads log and installed extensions. AVSoftware, Ltd. is known for the release of another ad-supported product that is the SafeSearch Toolbar. Computer users that do not wish to see sponsored content and targeted ads on their new tab page might want to remove the MapsEasy Toolbar and tracking cookies it may have downloaded using a credible anti-spyware instrument.
