ytbmp3 does not appear high in search results when users google “YouTube download” as there are many other similar sites offering this service. But nonetheless, if you end up on, you should avoid using it. If you convert a video and try to download the MP3, you will first get redirected to a risky website that will show fake update notifications and virus alerts, and suggest you install highly questionable programs. Some of those websites will also ask you to allow them to send notifications, which is just a fancy way of saying it wants your permission to show you irritating ads.

Is dangerous?

The site itself may not be particularly dangerous, but the redirects and ads are a different story. Once you start interacting with the site and try to download a converted video, you will be redirected to all kinds of questionable websites, none of which you should interact with. The sites you end up on will ask you to download potentially unwanted programs or even malware. You may also encounter fake alerts saying your computer is infected with some kind of virus, or that you need to call the shown number to get tech-support. Whatever you see on a site you are redirected to, ignore the contents and close the window.

Some of those sites will also ask you to allow them to send notifications. When you allow a site to send you notifications, you are agreeing to seeing essentially ads on your desktop. Legitimate sites use this browser feature to keep their users up-to-date with posted news stories, important updates, etc. However, scam websites are misusing this feature to spam users with ads. Never permit an unknown website to show notifications. And if you have done it by accident, do not interact with any ads or notifications until you remove the site’s permissions.

How do you need to delete

Since it’s unlikely that you are dealing with an infection, you don’t need to delete anything. However, if you have granted some site permission to show you notifications, you need to revoke it immediately. Here’s how to do it:

  • For Mozilla Firefox: Open menu (the three bars top-right corner) -> Options -> Privacy & Security. Scroll down to Permissions, press on Settings next to Notifications, and remove all unknown websites. You can actually permanently turn off these notification requests by checking the “Block new requests asking to allow notifications” box in the same Notifications settings.
  • For Google Chrome: Open menu (the three dots top-right corner) -> Settings -> Privacy and security -> Site Settings. Click on Notifications under Permissions, and remove all unknown websites. You can stop these notification requests permanently by toggling off “Sites can ask to send notifications”.
