Baboom Ads Description

Are Baboom ads disturbing your web browsing experience? These advertisements are caused by a web browser extension that goes by the name Baboom.audio. This web browser extension isn't dangerous, and it does, in fact, introduce some interesting features with its installaton. The Baboom.audio web browser extension is available for Google Chrome, and by installing it users gain access to the ability to listen to online radios directly through their web browser. This may seem like a useful feature, but, unfortunately, this is just about all good there is to say about Baboom.audio. This web browser extension has a dark side that few users know about – it injects advertisements in the web browser, and can turn your web browsing habits into a rather unenjoyable experience.

The Baboom.audio web browser extension may also collect anonymous data about the user's surfing habits. This data may be used to launch targeted advertising campaigns or for other marketing purposes. Regardless of its goal, the data collection technique utilized by Baboom.audio invades the user's privacy, and security experts are of the opinion that this extension's behavior should not be tolerated. If you find the Baboom.audio ads disturbing, you should remove the extension either manually or with the assistance of a potent anti-malware solution.
