Nice Day Extension
Lately, we have been dealing with problematic Chrome browser extensions that are bound to cause more trouble than do any good. Nice Day Extension is yet another addition to the growing group of Chrome plug-ins that you should not keep. Users tend to add such plug-ins accidentally, but even if you added this extension consciously, you should reconsider your options. The problem is that this plug-in could be exploited by malevolent third parties, and you most certainly have to avoid that. Hence, your best bet right now would be removing Nice Day Extension for good and protecting your system from similar intruders.
Perhaps the main issue with these potentially unwanted applications is that it is very hard to know which programs could cause issues and which do not do that. After all, Nice Day Extension can be added to your browser via the Chrome Web Store. From this, one could assume that the extension is reliable and not dangerous at all, which is somewhat true because this plug-in would not be able to infect you with malware or steal your information. Nevertheless, the official distribution sources are not the only places where you could get this plug-in, and perhaps a lot of users forget this fact.
After all, the information provided by the extension’s developers makes it look like Nice Day Extension is a really good tool. It says that the extension will “provide city weather information,” and you can customize “weather forecast information on Facebook, Google, YouTube and other sites.” On the other hand, it might seem odd as to why you need a third-party extension for a weather forecast when most of the operating systems nowadays come with built-in gadgets and apps that immediately notify you about your local weather. So it is rather doubtful whether you really need Nice Day Extension.
What’s more, Nice Day Extension may also come bundled or through pop-ups. What we mean by that is that this plug-in could be one of the many apps that enter your system at the same time through a bundled download. Bundled downloads refer to a software package that users download from file-sharing websites. For instance, it is very common to download more than one program from a file-sharing website. Perhaps you are not aware of the possibility, but file-sharing sites are bound to promote a lot of programs that may come with additional apps and features.
Can you choose to deselect the unnecessary programs? Normally, it is possible. However, since users are not aware of the potential threats, they go through the installation automatically without even bothering to read all the steps. As a result, Nice Day Extension and other unnecessary programs end up being installed on the target system. Once again, we are extremely lucky that Nice Day Extension is not a direct system security threat. Yet it may pose certain security issues because it will know your ISP location (it needs that to display your local weather), and the problem is that it can share this data later on with unreliable third parties.
On top of that, Nice Day Extension can also display commercial advertisements. These commercial ads will be related to your likes and preferences. How does this extension know what you like and what you do not? Once again, it can track your online activity because you have given it permissions to monitor your browsing history (whether that was a conscious decision or not). Of course, the plug-in cannot collect personally identifiable information, but constant exposure to third-party ads could prove to be dangerous. Some of the content that you may encounter through these ads could be harmful.
It is never too late to protect your system from malicious exploitation. Please remove Nice Day Extension today, and then scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner. If you have one unwanted application on-board, the chances are that you will probably have a few others. So you need to remove them all to avoid similar issues in the future.
If you think you cannot do it on your own, you can always acquire a powerful computer security tool that will do the job for you automatically. On the other hand, please do not forget that your web browsing habits should be reevaluated, too.
