Is Symbaloo (aka, SymbalooEDU, Symbaloo Bookmarker) an insecure program? What are the ingredients for a successful Symbaloo removal? Why don’t you find out for yourself?🙂
First of all, my upload (b87b1959406eb86d30cd0ce3ab7a9cf53edd5bfe46d4f401998775bb9a26b012) at VirusTotal indicates that the executable file "Get_Symbaloo.exe" (MD5, d687b7776dafee7d92e92bbffba508ef) is a risk-free program. Yet, I’ve learned lots of lessons while testing a potentially undesired program (aka, PUP/PUA) for both Windows and Mac. And now, I want to share some advice with you. Three of the most essential yet basic that will make you smarter are:
- Always perform a simple security scan with an online virus/malware scanner or an "offline" yet up-to-date security solution.
- Always try to perform the "Custom Installation" when you’re offered such an option.
- Rid of any unused/unknown program thoroughly, in time.
After all, my goal is just to deliver you insightful, proactive threat prevention solutions. My troubleshooting posts are different. I will always bring you all of next-gen computer security guidelines — right to your mouse click. And, I will always do the heavy-lifting and you enjoy the results.

It’s up to you, as Internet’s most popular browser programs have been facing one of the most annoying term, "Browser Hijacking", in the past few years.

*** What is really Symbaloo? ***
I would like to remind you that, Symbaloo is a cloud based social bookmarking service that can READ and change all your data on the websites you visit. Meantime, it has been a while since I noticed a downside of its express install mode ( * Read more and get the answer for yourself.). Personally, those predefined install options are NOT corresponding to the original value of the service and sabotaging the brand image that Symbaloo Team built.
Or, simply, Symbaloo, is an alternative to Bing Desktop. Yet, untrained users can easily get his or her browser configuration changed. How those totally unneeded installation options will affect you? I think that the majority of Windows 10 & WordPress users will NOT be affected by the term "Browser Hijacking" because of the way a 10 end-user get the app/code for his/her device. For those who accidentally installed Symbaloo on Windows 7, I will work w/ you to find an optimal solution for a healthy computer in the long-run, as fixing hijacked Web tool or cleaning junkware could be yet another challenge. It’d be expensive, and time consuming.
In this case, your best bet is to explore the advanced install options, e.g., "Add Symbaloo bookmarker to browser…", or, to have the best uninstall tool in place that can help you fully uninstall Symbaloo, and address any other uninstall errors that could have more a huge impact on your computer’s performance, and on your online privacy.
