If you wish to know why such content could be potentially dangerous, we recommend reading the rest of our report.

First of all, we would like to talk about how such a suspicious extension could appear on one’s browser. Since nJoyMovies Now is compatible only with Google Chrome; consequently, it is no wonder it can be found on the Chrome Web Store Page. However, besides being spread through chrome.google.com/webstore the potentially unwanted program could also travel with bundled software installers downloaded from untrustworthy file-sharing web pages, doubtful pop-up ads encountered while visiting other potentially dangerous sites, and so on. Thus, to defend the computer from such suspicious applications in the future, users should download software from legitimate web pages instead and keep away from doubtful content advertised on pop-ups, sponsored links, banners, etc. Plus, the computer might be less vulnerable to threats if you acquire a reliable security tool.
Soon after the user places nJoyMovies Now on his Google Chrome, it should replace his homepage with a specific search engine. Our specialists say it might show modified Yahoo search results or to be more precise, results gathered by search.yahoo.com, but injected with unreliable advertisements from the potentially unwanted program’s third-party partners. We fear such ads may not be reviewed before displaying them to the user, in which case there might be no guarantees the promoted products or services would be trustworthy. What we are trying to say is that there is a chance the search results displayed by nJoyMovies Now provided search engine could contain ads promoting potentially dangerous content, e.g., malicious software, fake lottery winnings or surveys, and so on.
As for the nJoyMovies Now’s provided feature allowing to find content related to movies we believe you should be able to get such content with any other search engine; all you have to do is use specific keywords. Therefore, all things considered, we do not think the extension is worth taking any risks, and if you do not want to take any chances, we encourage you to remove this potentially unwanted program at once.
Fortunately, the deletion process is not particularly complicated as the user would have to remove the application from the Google Chrome’s Extension’s menu and then erase a few possibly modified files to restore them. If you feel up to these tasks, you should have a look at the steps available below as they will explain the process in detail. Also, the potentially unwanted program can be eliminated with a security tool, so if you would rather employ such a tool, you should pick a reliable one from a trustworthy developer and perform a full system scan.
