KnowTheBible Toolbar Removal Guide

KnowTheBible Toolbar is a browser add-on that is classified as a potentially unwanted program. This is somewhat expected as it comes from as its developer is known for creating such applications. As you might have already guessed by its name, the add-on’s purpose is to provide users with information on the Bible. Some of its features include Daily Verse, Bible Trivia, Bible Study, Bible Passages, and Weekly Prayer. Although it may seem as quite a useful thing to have, we definitely do not recommend installing this program on your computer. It is a potential weakness for your system’s security. It may end up exposing you to various online threats. This is why it is best to get rid of it.

KnowTheBible Toolbar has been developed by Mindspark Interactive Network. This company is responsible for a whole array of browser extensions. Unfortunately, all of them may end up harming your system, although inadvertently, rather than being useful.

The browser add-on is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. It is available at bibletriviatime.com, while the Chrome version can also be acquired from the Chrome app shop. It has also been reported that the program comes with various other freeware programs. When downloading free programs from third-party websites, you should expect for them to have additional software attached to them. If you are not careful you may install other programs without wanting to.

Some even believe that KnowTheBible is a browser hijacker as it can change the settings on their browser. It can set your home page to home.tb.ask.com while the default search provider can be set to search.tb.ask.com. However, these options can be refused by users. If you have missed this, then you were not paying attention while installing the toolbar.

While the program has definitely not been created with any malicious intentions, this does not mean that it is entirely safe. If you use the Ask search engine, you will most likely be presented with ads among the search results. The problem with this is that there is no way to know whether all of these ads lead to reliable websites. If you do not want to risk ending up on the harmful websites, then you should not use its search engine. Moreover, it would be best to get rid of the application altogether.
