The Web Bar software is promoted at Getwebbar.com as the 'the world’s most convenient tool for searching and browsing your favorite websites.' Computer users that like to load and search content from several sites in one program window may be interested in installing the Web Bar software. Upon installation, the Web Bar application will be registered as a system service and may integrate with Windows as a toolbar that is placed on the top corner of your desktop screen. The Web Bar application may allow you to choose the default browser engine that you want to sue and load its Web content, but it will not let you select the amount of ads that would appear on your screen. Security authorities reveal that the Web Bar application may provide improved search capabilities, but its primary objective is to introduce users to promotions from its sponsors. The Web Bar app is an adware that can be compared to the SocialSearch Toolbar and the Hot Search Toolbar and might require administrative privileges to download updates that may include third-party software.

The Web Bar adware is a product of Web Bar Media and may gather data like your browsing history, system configuration and IP address to create a unique advertising profile that may be accessed by unlicensed advertisers.
