If you have found Jamboxlive.com set as your new default search provider, a browser extension JamBox must have affected your web browser. It should be compatible with Google Chrome only, specialists say, even though it declares that it works on Mozilla Firefox too. In most cases, users discover this extension installed on their browsers after they click the Add to Chrome button located on install.jamboxlive.com/?pid=52365&subid=26408&clickid=US18399377973 (users might be redirected to this page from another dubious website) or https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jambox/ndafjalmnedicmiaahbkegkdljhcfglg (Chrome Web Store). Of course, we do not say that it cannot appear on users’ PCs in a different way as well. According to specialists at 411-spyware.com, the JamBox extension promoting Jamboxlive.com could have entered your system in a software bundle as well. Either way, it would be smart to remove it even if it claims that it can improve the browsing experience by making it easier to find favorite songs and artists. Also, it promises to enable users to “listen to live radio stations” straight from the browser. We have doubts about its usefulness because it is not exactly what it claims to be. You will see for yourself if you continue reading this article.
We cannot confirm that JamBox is as beneficial as it claims to be. If you install this add-on or it manages to show up on your PC without your permission, you will only discover a new search tool Jamboxlive.com set on browsers. It has a search box and three buttons Favorites, Home, and Genres at the bottom. It might seem to be an ordinary search provider at first glance because it returns search results; however, it is far from such trustworthy search tools as Google because it redirects all the searches users enter to http://feed.jamboxlive.com/?q=buy&publisher=jambox&barcodeid=523510000000000 before redirecting them to search.yahoo.com. Because of this, users see advertisements on the search results page. Be very careful with them because they might take you to untrustworthy pages. Their presence is one of the major reasons you should not use Jamboxlive.com as your default search tool. Specialists say that users should be careful with this search provider also because it collects information about users. Luckily, this information is the so-called non-personally identifiable information. Although this information cannot identify users personally, we are sure you will not be very happy when you hear that it records all the entered search queries as well. It means that all personal details are recorded too if you enter them in the search box, so we suggest that you stop using Jamboxlive.com as your default search provider today.
Users can download the JamBox extension from the web themselves, as you already know; however, it seems that there are still more users out there who do not know anything about the installation of this suspicious browser extension, which clearly shows that it might be spread in a different way and enter computers without the users’ knowledge too. It is very likely that it travels bundled with different software, usually freeware, specialists say. Also, it might be installed automatically after clicking on a pop-up advertisement promoting this extension. Some users notice that it needs such permissions as “read and change all your data on the websites you visit, “manage your apps, extensions, and themes,” and “change your search settings to feed.jamboxlive.com” and cancel its installation, whereas others do not see anything suspicious here and still give it permission to enter their PCs. Unfortunately, not all the users read the information they are provided with carefully, so there are still more people out there who install the JamBox extension without not knowing how it really acts. Protect your browsers from unauthorized changes – install security software on your PC.
JamBox is not a harmful malicious application, so you could delete it quite easily and thus remove Jamboxlive.com from the place of your default search provider. You just need to remove this extension from your web browser so that it would no longer be opened for you when you launch it. Use our manual removal guide if you decide to erase it manually. Alternatively, you can clear your browser with an automated malware remover. Of course, you will first need to acquire it.
