removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - - | Type: Adware is a site that allows to download copyright content from YouTube, Facebook, and other sources is a site that offers a free video conversion service from YouTube and other sources, although it pushes scam ads is a website that offers free video download service from such popular sources like YouTube, Facebook, Soundcloud, Dailymotion, and others. The site also offers an extension MP3hub that is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera web browsers.

The site employs a push notification feature. While the developers claim that associated ad networks they use are reliable, ads are filled with phishing and scam site links that might make users install unwanted software/malware, disclose their personal information or lose money by unintentionally registering for a subscription.

Type File converting service, push notification virus
Browser extension Browser extension Mp3hub is offered for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera browsers
Dangers  Once site notifications are allowed, users are exposed to a variety of phishing and scam sites – if visited, these can make users register for useless (paid) service, download other potentially unwanted programs/malware or disclose their sensitive details to unknown parties
Termination  You can get rid of the browser extension manually; if you installed any programs from Mp3hub ads, you should also scan your computer with anti-malware
Recovery  For best results, you should reset all the installed browsers and run Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego

Just like any other file conversion site, allows users to search for videos directly via the site's search engine, or enter a direct link. It is very apparent why many users would like to use the service, as it is free, easy to navigate, and quick. However, we shall remind that such sites are often disapproved by music and movie industries due to copyright violations. To protect itself, states that the developers of the service are not responsible for the content converted/downloaded from the site, and the liability lies within the user:[1]

We are aiming to remain free, legal and fair, You are solely responsible for the content that you download on (that is never stored on our servers), we and our hosting provider should not be sued for your activity on this website. We remind you that each copyrighted file that can be downloaded on can be blacklisted, you can do it by filling a form in our Copyright section.

In other words, Mp3hub is not responsible for users who use copyright material like movies or songs and download them via the provided service. Developers also claim that all the illegal material is to be taken down from the site as soon as it is reported – meaning that each of the content creators and major labels needs to fill in the form for each of the illegally uploaded videos for the action to be taken. Consequently, is filled with various copyright songs and movies, which can be downloaded by anyone. copyright is a website that hosts copyrighted material, such as various licenced music pieces

Another reason to remove from your browser is its unsafe advertisement practices. As previously mentioned, the site claims that it does not use any dubious ad networks, although all the push notifications coming from it are nothing but a scam. In most of the cases, users are lured to sites that promise free iPhones, large winnings, and similar fake claims. As expected, these sites are filled with fake comments that claim the prizes or winnings are real.

Therefore, do not get tricked by the virus, and never download anything the ads suggest. If you do, you might infect your computer with Trojans, rootkits, info-stealers, or even ransomware.[2] In the best-case scenario, you will download a scareware[3] app that will constantly nag you about purchasing its licensed version to fix the non-existent problems on your computer.

For a complete removal along with other PUPs, we recommend scanning the device with security software, resetting web browsers (or disabling the push notification feature if it was enabled – as per instructions below) and running a scan with Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego to fix possible stability and performance issues after the infection. push notificationsOnce enabled, push notifications spams users' web browsers with phishing and clickbait links

Stay away from online scams and do not get in trouble by downloading copyrighted content

Sites that allow video downloads or conversion to MP3 or other formats are extremely popular and attract millions of users in the process. YouTube and other content can sometimes be shared without any restrictions, and that is what these services are allegedly designed for. However, the truth is that users simply use it to download songs or movies that are illegal to download. In other words, this service is very similar to torrents, as generally, torrenting is legal, as long no copyrighted material is shared via the P2P network.

In the meantime, the developers of file conversion sites earn millions from ad revenue. However, users who do use these services risk their online safety and computer security, as malicious ads can fill their screens at any time, resulting in malware infections, data disclosure, and similar issues.

Thus, avoid using such services in the first place. Download songs and videos from legitimate sources and never click on ads that are embedded on such dubious sites or after enabling push notification feature. As a general rule, remember that all the claims that sound too good to be true most likely are.

Get rid of ads and download prompts virus might be serious if you start downloading various programs that are offered via the site ads, whether it is via embedded ones or push notifications. As previously mentioned, you might be offered to install scareware apps like OneSafe PC Cleaner or even straight out malware that can compromise your computer or steal personal information from you. In other words, you need to remove ads as well as all the installed PUPs as soon as possible. offers unsafe ads offers potentially unwanted programs like OneSafe PC Cleaner
