The actual site may be safe but the software and browser hi-jacking it installs causes costly damage and the fact that it's almost impossible to remove once installed makes it a MALWARE site. If it quacks like a duck, has feathers and looks like a duck, call it that. If it were a good add-in it would be easy to remove and clearly state what it is doing. It is doing neither.
This is the site that users are forced to use after installation of some freeware applications. The browser remains configured to use this site even after the freeware is removed. This site does not provide an easy way to remove its browser customizations. I see this as unethical and crooked. As a result I do not trust this site, or company.
Obnoxious site that uses any trickery under the sun to fool you and trip you up, from grayed-out cancel buttons (that work but you don't expect it so you never click that) to buttons that wait for several seconds until you re-click but then you're onto the next 'agree' page.
I am a software engineer and can see some of the tricks they use, and this company is the antithesis of everything that is moral and right in software. I detest their every mode of operation.
Search Protection Software from this site makes it so you cannot change your homepage or search settings back to normal. It will try to set your browsers to use Bing or Yahoo every time you restart your browser.
Includes this software as unwanted adware. Often confusingly packaged with other software which a user WILL want.
I don't see how this site hasn't been marked as red yet.
Conduit is supposed to be a place where you can make your own toolbar and mobile apps. THEY DO NOT HAVE THEIR OWN TOOLBAR AND YOU CANNOT DOWNLOAD ANY TOOLBARS FROM THIS SITE AT ALL!!!!!
Okay, apparently, the making toolbar thing is discontinued. Now you can just make mobile apps and download a crossover browser.
So no toolbars at all. This is safe.
Well, the toolbars that are already made with conduit is still around...
This "service" stealthily hijacks the user's home page (i.e. new tab page) in Google Chrome and even tries to look like the default new tab page, and sets the default search engine to Conduit.com.
I recommend disabling and avoiding on the bad practice standards alone; Go to settings and reselect your search engine of choice and reset your home page to something less malicious.
Conduit is known to be a browser hijacker. Conduit is designed to look like the Google homepage so you're less likely to notice that it changed/hijacked your original homepage. It also installs unwanted software without your permission such as toolbars. Conduit is extremely annoying and difficult to remove.
