What is Ytmp3.cc

Unfortunately, YouTube does not have a feature of downloading videos directly to your computer. However, there are lots of independent services that allow doing so by pasting video URLs and downloading them for free. And Ytmp3.cc is one of those. But, because these services are usually not legitimate, they can display unwanted ads and redirect to other suspicious websites used to spread malicious content for revenue purposes. Of course, naive users are happy to use Ytmp3.cc regardless of intrusive redirects. However, this careless behavior often leads to adware infection that therefore shows malicious advertisement on desktop. This type of infection can gather personal data and transmit it over to third parties without the user’s consent. This is why we have prepared a guide on how to secure yourself from these tricks and remove Ytmp3.cc from your computer.

How Ytmp3.cc infected your computer

Ytmp3.cc is very similar to YouTubedownloader.video. It can be visited either compulsively while looking for video downloading services or by adware, that causes deceptive redirects on your computer. Adware developers use different kinds of dissemination like fake push notification pop-ups that are presented on dubious landing pages saying that you have to click on the “Allow notifications” button in order to continue or, in our case, download a video. When inexperienced users fall into this trick, adware gets settled on your computer and deliberately starts demonstrating the flow of unwanted advertisements on the screen. On top of that, Ytmp3.cc has also been spread via bundling which means filling innocent software kits with malicious plug-ins. Frauds gamble on oblivious users who misuse skipping “Custom” sections that may contain such apps. At the end of the installation, adware gets successfully planted on your device, therefore, showing intrusive updates. To remove Ytmp3.cc redirects and continue browsing safely, you can go through the guide down below.
