MetroWhiz is the unwanted browser extension. As you may have already guessed, this extension is supposed to provide you with quick access to various radio stations available online. The extension also alters your browser settings and causes other modifications that are not exactly useful to you. This is one of the reasons why it falls into the category of potentially unwanted programs. Although it is not a malicious threat, you should know that it will lower your online safety level and disrupt your surfing. If you wish to go back to normal web browsing, you will have to terminate MetroWhiz and its related extension.
MetroWhiz spreads online in free software bundles. It does not have an official site, where it could be downloaded, so, instead, it gets attached to free third party software. When you install freeware, you get presented with additional offers. If you fail to notice them, you agree to these offers automatically. It is possible that this is how you acquired the application. In order to avoid similar situations in the future, you should be more attentive during freeware installation and always choose the Advanced mode, so that you can deselect all apps that are unnecessary to you.
Once MetroWhiz extension gets access to your browsers, it alters their settings. Your home page, new tab, and default search provider get replaced with MetroWhiz. It usually presents you with a search box and such quick access buttons as Spotify, SoundCloud, YouTube, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and some others. If you enter a query into the search box, you will get results from Yahoo. Please note that they will include sponsored links. You are also likely to notice various ads on other websites that you visit. We advise that you avoid interacting with them as they may be unsafe. If you wish get rid of these ads, you will have to delete MetroWhiz from your browsers.
