Hey everyone! Have you ever had a browser plugin installed, and then wondered, why on earth did you install it in the first place? I bet our feelings are mutual when it comes to Tuvaro Toolbar. It’s one of those add-ons that are kind of useful, and then again you would be better off without it. As far as I know, Tuvaro Toolbar is similar to Claro Toolbar and Montera Toolbar, mostly because they are developed by Montera Technologies Ltd. So in a way, this plugin is not a computer threat (unlike what most of the security-related websites might say), yet even so, I suppose you should remove Tuvaro Toolbar from your PC if you are still not sure whether you really need it or not.
What is more, some users completely overlook Tuvaro Toolbar installation steps, which ends up in home page and default search engine modification. It is true that Tuvaro Toolbar comes with a customized search engine and it does provide a search function, but it is highly questionable whether the search results presented by Tuvaro Toolbar are trustworthy.
It all adds up to the conclusion that it is in your best interest to remove Tuvaro Toolbar from your PC. Luckily, this plugin is a not a computer malware application, so it is possible to terminate it manually. All you have to do is follow the instructions below.
