nJoyMusic Search Plus
nJoyMusic Search Plus is a browser extension oriented at users who surf the Internet with Google Chrome. If you added it to your browser, you should know it was classified as a potentially unwanted program or a PUP in short. It does not mean the application is malicious; however, our researchers say it would be unwise to trust it and so they recommend removing it before anything goes wrong. According to our specialists, the extension may provide a modified search engine through which it might show users unreliable advertising content from the third party. As you realize, such material could redirect to potentially dangerous web pages, which is why we recommend being cautious with it. In order to learn more about nJoyMusic Search Plus, you should continue reading our text. Also, if you choose to erase it, we offer our deletion instructions located below this article.
One of the places where users can find the PUP is Chrome Web Store page. There the application is advertised as a powerful search engine with unique browsing tools. The reason we doubt the extension can offer any unique or powerful features is that we have already encountered quite a lot of similar add-ons with almost precisely the same features. To be more accurate, the program seems to be merely a clone or a new variant of nJoyMovies Now, nJoySport Search, and other similar tools we have already tested earlier. What’s more, the mentioned applications were classified as PUPs too, and the research shows they could be distributed via unreliable pop-up ads, not just the Chrome Web Store page. Accordingly, we believe nJoyMusic Search Plus might be spread with the help of pop-up ads too. If this is how you received this doubtful extension, we would recommend being more cautious with such content in the future.
Soon after the add-on is installed, the affected browser’s default search engine could be replaced with a modified search.yahoo.com variant. Our specialists say when the user searches with it he might be redirected to a particular server (http://musix.eanswers.com) belonging to the PUP. It is entirely possible that during such redirection the results gathered via the nJoyMusic Search Plus search tool might be altered to place more advertising content among them. The worst part is, such material may come from various unknown third parties, so there is not knowing what it might advertise as well. For example, if the ads come from potentially dangerous sites, they could promote fake lotteries, untrustworthy applications similar to this PUP, or in the worst case scenario sites and software infected with malware. Under such circumstances, we would recommend being extra cautious if you are using this extension's search engine. On the other hand, to avoid all possible risks it might be easier just to get rid of nJoyMusic Search Plus.
Furthermore, the add-on’s search engine may show various categories to make it easier to find the particular content you might be looking for, but clearly, using specific keywords next to your search phrases, for example, the same category words, should allow you to find the content you need with any other search engine. What we are trying to say, it could be same effective and most importantly safer to browse the Internet with a reputable search engine instead, for example, google.com. Thus, if you want to keep your system secure and do not want to take any risks, we encourage you to get rid of the PUP with no hesitation and find a safer alternative for nJoyMusic Search Plus provided search engine.
