Boby Lyrics is indeed a handy browser extension designed to display the lyrics of the music videos you are watching on YouTube. It does, however, exhibit some intrusive features, which is why malware experts consider it a PUP (potentially unwanted program) and recommend its removal.
How Does Boby Lyrics Work?
Body Lyrics is an ad-supported program developed by Revizer Technologies Ltd., and it’s compatible with the most popular web browsers – Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox.
Boby Lyrics appears to be quite useful to those who regularly watch music videos on YouTube as it displays the lyrics of the songs alongside.
As this browser extension is ad-supported, once installed it will also start displaying multiple pop-up ads of various coupons, discounts, and what not. These ads may appear a bit annoying to you, but what is worse is that clicking any of them may redirect you to potentially corrupted websites. This way you risk infecting your system, too.
In addition, Boby Lyrics is capable of monitoring and recording your browsing habits, only to share them with third party advertising agencies. The purpose behind is to customize the pop-ups in accordance with your search preferences.
How Does Boby Lyrics Enter Your PC?
Boby Lyrics gets installed on your PC via two ways – you can either manually install it by visiting its official website, or it may enter your system bundled with other freeware you download. The bundling is a popular method of distributing various PUPs and adware to users’ systems. That is why, in order to protect your system, you must be careful what features and options you accept and agree to throughout the installation process. You must opt out of the bundling and aim for custom installation. This way, you will install only the program and features you need.
Should You Remove Boby Lyrics?
Some users may really find Boby Lyrics a useful browser extension. It is a legit program and is not malicious, after all. However, if it entered your PC uninvited and if the pop-up ads annoy you, you should remove it. Also, do not click on these pop-ups. As mentioned earlier, they may redirect you to infected websites, and you may get yourself a real virus.
