Baboom is an ad-supported Internet radio browser extension for Chrome that you should remove. You should not confuse this adware with the recently released music streaming service under time same name found at That website is legitimate and is designed an alternative to Spotify and Apple Music. Baboom that we want to discuss is promoted on a website called This browser extension provides and Internet radio service, but it also displays a lot of unasked-for advertisements that you probably did not know about when you decided to download it. The developers make money from advertisements which is good for them, but not for you. The ads may be misleading and even fictitious, so you should not click them.

So seems that Baboom is also the name of a new music streaming service envisioned by Kim Dotcom, so it might have mislead you to believe that you will get a whole new music experience. In truth Baboom is just a mere Internet radio player and it even is bad at that. Try finding your favorite radio station. If you are lucky enough to find it then try playing it because 5 times out of 10 the station will not work. This browser extension has been released with the intention of making money, because it features a lot of advertisements that you surely do not want to see.

Baboom’s privacy policy states that “You further understand that when using the Service, you may be exposed to content, merchandise, third party advertising, and other content from a variety of sources, and that we are not responsible for the accuracy, integrity, quality, legality, usefulness, safety or intellectual property rights of or relating thereto.” So the developers cannot guarantee that their partners are legitimate businessmen. Therefore, they will not take any responsibility if you experience any undesirable consequences, such as your computer becoming infected with malware or if you experience a financial loss or worst of all, get scammed by cyber criminals. You should also be aware that the developers use Baboom to collect information about your browsing preferences and other information.

It goes that these are the same third parties for whose actions Baboom’s developers do not want to be responsible.

Baboom has been developed by a known adware developer called Linkury. Unfortunately, the developers have made arrangements to put up this application for download on Google’s Chrome Web Store. It is not the first time that an unreliable application got on it, and we hope that Baboom will be taken down very soon. But before this happens, this Internet radio application will be promoted on which redirects to the Chrome Web Store.

So if you have this application and you do not want to be subjected to unreliable commercial content, then you ought to remove it. This application is unreliable not only because of the ads, but also because it does not work as you expect it. There is ample supply of applications that can take Baboom’s place, so we suggest that you look for something else. Please refer to our removal instructions if you have trouble navigation trough Chrome.
