What is SongsCenter Search?

Users who willingly install the Google Chrome browser extension SongsCenter Search on their PCs expect it to act beneficially, and we cannot blame them for this because this extension is promoted as a beneficial tool. It promises to help users “easily search the web for FREE unlimited music, song, full albums, music videos.” At the time of writing, there were 156 039 users who installed it from the Chrome Web Store, so we can consider it quite popular. If you are among those users, i.e., you see SongsCenter Search on the list of Google Chrome extensions too, you should think twice before letting it stay because it is not a fully trustworthy application even though you have found it quite beneficial. Experienced researchers at even consider it a potentially unwanted program (PUP). It has been placed next to other potentially unwanted programs not without reason, of course.

What does SongsCenter Search do?

SongsCenter Search is not real malware, so it does not perform any malicious activities. Specialists say that it does not even change browsers’ settings, e.g., New Tab, homepage, or search tool too like similar untrustworthy extensions. It only adds a button on the browser’s toolbar (the top-right corner of the browser’s main window) following the successful installation. You can close and open the small search window with the click of this button. It contains a search box for searching music online. Also, it allows performing searches under specific genres. This feature of SongsCenter Search is quite useful, we have to admit, but we do not think that it is a good idea to keep this extension active despite several advantages it has because it is still a potentially unwanted program that might act in an undesirable way. You have a right to know that it will gather information about you if you let it stay. If you want to find more about how it treats the users’ privacy, read its Privacy Policy document, but it is enough to know that it records the so-called demographic information automatically. On top of that, it might record some personal details: “We may collect your name, email address, country of origin, and, if you choose, your nickname, telephone number, website, company, and title.” You should not provide all these details even though it promises not to “sell your personal information to third parties” because it is still a potentially unwanted program, and these applications cannot be trusted fully.

Where does SongsCenter Search come from?

You could have installed SongsCenter Search directly from the Chrome Web Store ( or its homepage ( if you see it next to other Google Chrome add-ons. Also, you could have been presented with a pop-up promoting it. This malicious pop-up usually appears on users’ screens when they open untrustworthy domain and then experience further redirections. Some users install the promoted extension expecting that it will act beneficially, whereas others click the installation button with the intention of closing the pop-up quicker. Either way, do not even think about keeping SongsCenter Search if it has been installed on your browser without your consent. Similar suspicious extensions, e.g., MovieCenter Search, arcadeCenter Search, and videoCenter Search are available too, so you should be more cautious from now on in order not to end up with any of them again.
