What is BuzzSurfing?
BuzzSurfing is a tool which is meant to automatically provide the lyrics alongside the music videos you are watching on YouTube. Even though it is not that difficult to find the lyrics to any song on reliable websites, many computer users are interested in trying out the extension which is supposed to alleviate the process. Needless to say, nothing is for free, and so even though the plugin is promoted as a free tool, you need to recognize that different advertisements could follow it. In fact, this is exactly what will happen if you install the program onto the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer browsers. As Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have discovered, the extension is supported by third party advertisers who can help the developers of the plugin earn commission by displaying different online advertisements. If you wish to stop these – remove BuzzSurfing.
How does BuzzSurfing work?
Malware researchers have discovered that the official BuzzSurfing web page is buzzsurfing.co. The download link on this page is no longer active, and this suggests that the plugin’ support may have been discontinued. Have you heard of ElectroLyrics, ULyrics or LyricsGet? These are few of the many browser extensions which belong to the Lyrics family and which appear to have been created on the Crossrider platform. These applications serve the same purpose, share similar representation and none are available for installation, and this is quite suspicious. It is even more suspicious that these plugins still travel bundled with other applications. We do not recommend installing BuzzSurfing from a third party distributor because the application might not work. Furthermore, it could come packaged with adware and other potentially undesirable programs.
If BuzzSurfing is still active on your browsers, it is possible that you keep facing different pop-up offers and advertisements. Note that these are represented by third parties whose intentions are unknown. If you do not want to be redirected to unfamiliar, potentially misleading websites, you should not click on the displayed ads, participate in prize giveaways or fill random surveys.
How to remove BuzzSurfing?
There is no doubt that BuzzSurfing is not a malicious program; however, we categorize it as adware, or advertisement supported software, because it is affiliated to third party advertisers. Due to this, the extension may enable various suspicious advertisements which may be served via unreliable advertising domains, including lps.adwingate.com, I.txtsrving.info or Jck.drivesection.net. Therefore, we recommend having BuzzSurfing deleted from the browsers if the program is still active. You can use automatic malware removal software to eliminate adware and the undesirable extension, or you can use the manual removal guides presented below.
