Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application

Central Hub Radio

If you encounter Central Hub Radio, you should be careful with it since it appears to be a potentially unwanted program. It does not mean the application is malicious, but it is crucial to mention the extension might introduce users to possibly dangerous advertising content, which means it still cannot be trusted. If you read the rest of our article, we will provide you with more details about Central Hub Radio. Plus, at the end of the text, we will add instructions showing how to remove this potentially unwanted program on your own. Nonetheless, if the task appears to be too difficult, you could install a reliable antimalware tool instead, scan the computer with it, and then get rid of the suspicious extension and other potential threats by merely pressing the deletion button. Users who have more questions about it or need more tips on how to erase the application could also leave a comment below.

To begin with, we should start by explaining how Central Hub Radio might enter the system. Our researchers say some users could download it after visiting centralhubradio.com or chrome.google.com/webstore. Another possibility is the potentially unwanted program could travel with bundled installation files. If this is true, there might be users who may receive this suspicious extension unknowingly. To be more accurate, the application might be bundled with other programs, and less attentive users may overlook it on the setup wizard and accidentally agree to install it as well. Therefore, it is always best to select advanced installation settings and take a closer look at the extra conditions or terms. Additionally, we could suggest installing a reliable antimalware tool as it might help you recognize untrustworthy software.

What’s more, we should mention the extension works only on Google Chrome browsers, which means it cannot be encountered by those who browse with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and so on. Another thing our researchers noticed while testing this potentially unwanted program is that it might try to make the user surf the Internet with a new search engine. The application could do so by changing your start page or default search provider with home.centralhubradio.com/nt. Since this search engine was noticed collecting results while employing a modified search.yahoo.com version we believe there is a chance Central Hub Radio might have the ability to alter the gathered results by placing additional advertising content from various third parties. What allows us to think this could be true is the software’s Privacy Policy paper. It claims the application can both collect and share user information to “to deliver content or advertising.”

Usually, potentially unwanted programs’ creators do not guarantee the content from third parties that may be displayed by their applications will be reliable or malware-free. In fact, Central Hub Radio’s End User License Agreement document claims the product’s developers are not responsible for the third-party content and by installing the software user acknowledges it. This means if the extension shows suspicious advertising content you will be solely responsible for any consequences. If you wonder how interaction with such ads could go wrong, we can mention a few possibilities. First of all, the ads might contain links to scam web pages where you may reveal your sensitive data to scammers. Then, there is also a risk some of the advertisements could promote adware, browser hijackers, or even malicious software.

Naturally, if you do not wish to risk encountering possibly malicious advertising content, we recommend erasing Central Hub Radio as fast as possible. Provided, you decide to remove it manually we could offer our deletion instructions located a bit below this paragraph. As said at the beginning the potentially unwanted program can be eliminated with a reliable antimalware tool too, so if you prefer automatic tools keep it in mind, you can use them as well.
