If you added myMoviesCenter Search to your Google Chrome, we recommend reading more about it before using it as our specialists discovered some suspicious details about it. It appears to be there is a chance this plugin might introduce users to untrustworthy third-party advertisements. The research shows such material could be injected into the gathered results while the user’s search query is being redirected to the software’s server. Consequently, it was decided the extension should be classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). There are lots of scenarios of how third-party ads could endanger the system or user’s privacy and so we would strongly advise not to trust myMoviesCenter Search and find a safer alternative to get information about your favorite movies, TV shows, etc. For those who choose to get rid of this suspicious plugin, we can offer deletions steps located at the end of the text. As for more details about the tool and its working manner we invite you to keep reading the article.

The application can be downloaded from Chrome Web Store Page where you can also find the tool's description and reviews. However, at the moment of writing there is only one review on myMoviesCenter Search and it just says the user hates the tool. As for the PUP’s description, it claims with it you can “Search and find movie related content from your address bar.” It looks like to find the mentioned content the user should type letter “m,” press TAB, insert the search phrase, and click Enter or search button. After doing so, our specialists noticed the user could be redirected to the application’s server (earch.myappzcenter.com/search/?category=web). We believe during this the add-on might inject results associated with the user phrase with third-party advertisements. The reason we believe it to be possible is one of the statements found on the PUP’s Privacy Policy paper. To be more precise it says “We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing and improving our services, delivering targeted content and advertisements.”

The bad news is myMoviesCenter Search’s creators claim they do not take any responsibility for the third-party content in the software’s End User License Agreement document. It means if the add-on could display any advertisements and such material would appear to be possibly harmful or malicious you would be solely responsible for any damage received after clicking such ads. There are a lot of scenarios of what could happen, for example, the third-party website might show fictitious lottery winnings, ask you to install fake updates, other PUPs, and so on. Therefore, we advise being extra cautious if you see such advertisements while searching the Internet with the search engine provided by myMoviesCenter Search. Truth to be told, we believe it might be safest to eliminate this PUP and use a more reliable search engine for which you would not have to install anything, for example, google.com. Do not forget you can always make your searches more specific if you use right keywords and phrases, so if you are searching for content related to movies, use words like movie, studio, TV series, etc.

Provided, you choose to erase myMoviesCenter Search, you should know it can be deleted in two ways. More experienced users could try to remove it manually. The task might be a bit difficult, but the instructions located at the end of this text might make it easier. A less complicated option would be to download a reliable security tool. Once it is installed, the user should perform a full system scan and wait for the results. Then the PUP and other possible threats could be removed at once by pressing the provided deletion button.
