What Is Inbox Toolbar?

Inbox Toolbar is an Internet browser hijacker that can infect most Internet browsers, including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, as of 2014. The program typically infects a computer through free downloads and changes the homepage and default search engine of an Internet browser to inbox.com.

Inbox Toolbar also installs a browser helper object that is commonly classified as an unwanted application or adware. Searches made on the inbox.com website are potentially harmful, as they can direct a user to websites that contain viruses or malware. The program also tracks user data, keeping a record of visited websites, geographic locations, IP addresses and other browser-related information.
