What is RecipeKart

RecipeKart is a browser extension that has been spread in a form of toolbar. It was developed by Mindspark Interactive which is commonly known for its numerous shady programs that have been distributed via “bundling” for many years. As the name implies, this application is intended for cooking lovers as it contains many links to websites with recipes. In reality, it’s just a trick used by developers to attract unsuspecting users. RecipeKart is designed to generate advertising revenue by boosting traffic to partner websites so they do not care about the content they link you to. If you are still considering whether to remove RecipeKart or not, you should also know that it can track your personal data and share it with third-parties. Hence, to avoid these and other problems, you need to hurry up its removal.
