LyricsBuddy

LyricsBuddy is the browser plugin represented through lyricsbuddy.co. The application is promoted as the tool which can provide you with the karaoke experience when watching YouTube videos. Once you download the plugin onto your personal computer, and Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer browsers, you are supposed to find lyrics to any music video played on youtube.com. Hundreds, maybe even thousands, of computers users have installed the add-on onto their browsers thinking that they could use it to their own benefit. Unfortunately, the plugin has been created to serve its developers and third party affiliates, which is why we recommend having LyricsBuddy removed.

If you have downloaded the plugin onto your browsers you must have noticed that its publisher is not verified. Needless to say, you need to be extra careful when running unverified, suspicious applications because they could hide truly mischievous tasks and goals. Our researchers have analyzed LyricsPal, LyricSing and similar browser plugins which work in the exact same manner as LyricsBuddy does. As the Privacy Policy of the applications reveals, the program cannot be used to collect private, identifiable information; however, it can be used to determine your online behavior:

We collect your online behavior information in order to optimize and improve our services and the user online experience as well as targeting potential new users and providing the Services (or any part thereof). This information is statistically processed, for aggregated analytics, and enables us to better understand user’s preferences and interest. We may, in the future use this information to serve you with ads customized to your preferences.

Do you want to find different personalized advertisements pop-up on your browsers whenever you are surfing the web? We are sure you do not because this activity is extremely irritating. What is more, if you were targeted by misleading advertisements soon enough you could find yourself downloading unreliable software or exposing your personal information. Beware of any virtual scams because it could be used to lure out your money and lead you to malware installation. If this happens, getting LyricsBuddy deleted would be the last of your problems.

Do you want to remove LyricsBuddy from your operating system? Whether you have downloaded the application from its official download page or if it was provided by third party software distributors you should firstly scan the entire system with a reliable, free SpyHunter’s scanner. Download the program and use it to examine the operating system. If any threats are found make sure to activate the automatic remover, which we recommend updating at all times in order to ensure full time system’s protection. You can also try to delete LyricsBuddy manually; however, this task may involve certain risks.
