This page gives screenshots showing Google Toolbar installation disclosures and other screens. See also discussion in main article.


Post-Install Bubble

At the conclusion of installation, Google Toolbar opens the bubble shown here.


Clicking Privacy Policy

Clicking "Privacy Policy" in the preceding screen yields this display. Note the lack of browser chrome -- no options to search text, copy to the clipboard, save, or print. Note also the absence of any on-screen mention of the special privacy concerns presented by Enhanced Features.


Scrolling Down Five On-Screen Pages

Scrolling down five on-screen pages yields mention of the special privacy concerns presented by Advanced Features.


Options Screens

These screenshots present two Google Toolbar "Options" screens. Notice the lack of any obvious way to disable Enhanced Features.
