Do you know what GetSeniorResources Toolbar is?
As far as extensions go, GetSeniorResources Toolbar is a pretty ageist one. It targets what it identifies as “baby boomers” and “seniors,” and it claims to offer services designed specifically for them. In fact, it does not look like the needs of senior citizens are taken into account at all. On the contrary, this is just a regular extension that we have seen a hundred times before. The links represented via the toolbar might be unique, but, other than that, this extension is identical to MyChristianPortal Toolbar, NoteHomepage Toolbar, MyFileConvert Toolbar, and TaxCenterNow Toolbar. These extensions belong to Ask Applications, Inc. and Mindspark Interactive Network, and while it might seem that they were created to assist users in unique ways, it is more likely that they were created to promote a search tool. Is this why we recommend removing GetSeniorResources Toolbar?
It is likely that you downloaded GetSeniorResources Toolbar from getseniorresources.com if you use Firefox, or chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/getseniorresources/bmdimkfhcogobkfeaepafcohjjogcadf if you use Chrome. According to the information presented officially, the extension is meant to help find information on such topics as “health, money, news, travel, coupons and more!” If you decide to install the extension, you might be warned that it can replace your New Tab page, read your browsing history, deliver notifications, and manage other apps and extensions. This is one part of why we classify it as a PUP – potentially unwanted program. Once you install GetSeniorResources Toolbar, the New Tab page should be changed, and you should be introduced to a few links to third-party websites from here. This service is very limited, and not exclusive, given that you can easily access the same websites without the PUP.GetSeniorResources Toolbar screenshot

Why bother with limited and useless extensions when you can install highly beneficial ones. You can set a desired search engine to open on the New Tab and you can also create your own toolbar of bookmarks. In most cases, that is enough to satisfy all browsing needs. If you have decided that you want to delete GetSeniorResources Toolbar, we suggest scanning the system first. This will not take much of your time, but you will know what kinds of threats you need to delete. If you discover that you need to eliminate other threats, it might be wisest to implement automated anti-malware software.

In non-techie terms:
GetSeniorResources Toolbar does not seem to have been created with seniors in mind. Sure, it offers a few links to third-party websites and a search engine via the New Tab page, but that is far from what we would call a beneficial extension. On top of that, it is known that this PUP can gather user-related information and maybe even use it to deliver personalized content. Since the partners of the PUP’s creator are not fully disclosed, we do not know if trusting the service is a smart thing to do. If you decide that you want to delete GetSeniorResources Toolbar, you can follow the instructions above, but remember that if other threats exist, or if your system lacks reliable protection, it might be time to implement anti-malware software.
