Search By PrsstMusic

Search By PrsstMusic

You might think that Search By PrsstMusic is a beneficial tool, but we would like to argue with that idea. Although the extension provides its users with access to music-related content, it is not actually beneficial, and the only thing it can do is redirect users to prsstmusic.com. Yes, this website allows you to search for your favorite musical artist, album, or song, but the information that is available is truly limited. For example, if you enter your favorite artist, you are introduced to a list of albums and songs they have produced, but when you click to listen to them, you are shown videos that are available on youtube.com. Therefore, although the website might seem to offer a music streaming service, it certainly does not do that. Unfortunately, it is just one of the reasons to delete Search By PrsstMusic. At the time of research, this PUP (potentially unwanted program) was compatible with Google Chrome only, and if you have it installed on this browser, we suggest you read this removal guide right now.
