nJoyPlay is the name of a deceptive and potentially malicious browser extension and webpage. Browser extensions like nJoyPlay for Google chrome are typically recognized as adware and browser hijackers because once they are installed they will make unwanted modifications to existing internet browser settings without consent of the user. The nJoyPlay browser extension will replace the existing homepage with itself. This will cause affected web browsers to start-up on the webpage when a new browser window is opened. The extension will also change the new tab page and default search engine. When this occurs a new tab page will open on nJoyPlay and web searches via the address bar will redirect to the website.
The website promoted by the nJoyPlay extension contains sponsored search results and advertisements, which is why browser extensions like this are often considered adware. The browser extension is also known to be deceptive and illusive. It may utilize deceptive marketing tactics in order to trick users into installing it. In some cases, the browser extension may be installed without user knowledge and consent.
Once concerning piece of information about the nJoyPlay extension for Google Chrome is that it does not disclose the fact that it will essentially hijack your homepage, new tab page, and default search engine before it is manually installed. Browser extensions contain public permissions which usually list what the browser extension has permission to do once it is installed. The nJoyPlay extension does not disclose that it will change your homepage, new tab page, or search engine. This is likely because no one really wants to download a relatively unknown browser extension that will replace their settings in order to see potentially irrelevant search results from a third-party and suspicious website, or a website with a bad reputation.
