Musix Search is a browser extension that enables quick access to videos and music online. Such feature can be quite handy, but users should note that the Musix Search extension is categorized as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) due to its data collection capabilities. Once active, Musix Search is known to display various advertising materials in the web pages the user visits, thus disrupting his browsing routine. The promoted marketing content may prove to be unverified and link the user to suspicious or even corrupt web pages. Experts recommend the removal of Musix Search with a reliable AV tool.

How Is Musix Search Distributed?

Musix Search can be downloaded online. The search extension can also end up in your system bundled with other free software you’ve installed recently. Additional apps, toolbars, and plug-ins are often inadequately disclosed in the standard installation options, and the only way to stop their infiltration is to select the Advanced options where you can un-tick any unwanted programs.

How Does Musix Search Affect Your Computer?

The potentially unwanted program injects a number of third-party ads (pop-ups, banners, deals, coupons, etc.) in the pages you view. These may pose security risks to your system since most of them link to pages with unverified content.

Musix Search also tracks certain details about your browsing activities, visited URLs, performed searches, and other personally non-identifiable information. The collected data serves mainly the purposes of targeted advertisement.

Musix Search can be deleted manually, or in case you do not feel confident enough – with the assistance of a reliable AV tool.
