Local Temperature

Many people do not realize that Local Temperature is actually an adware application that displays unreliable third-party advertisements. Therefore, we think, that you should remove this program, provided that your computer has been infected with it. On the outside the program is a weather application, but it is more than that. In reality, the programs primary function is not to show you the weather forecast, but to make money by showing advertisements that are supplied by third parties. so if you are thinking about downloading this application, please read this article and find out why you should not.

The publisher of Local Temperature is called Core systems. The program has been developed by a company a company of the same name. Unsurprisingly, there is no further information about the developer. No address, no email, and no phone number. But you can supposedly contact them by seding a message via the application’s website at However, we doubt that you will get a reply. Usually, such things are just for show, and we suspect that this case is no exception. Anyway, the website features two versions of the program. One is an ad-free version with a price tag of $9.99, and a free ad-supported version. Now, we doubt the need to buy such a program since Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 8.1 have built-in weather apps that work rather well, while this application does not. New York City is the default location when you install the program, but we were not able to change the location by entering a city’s name or ZIP code.

It is stated in the Terms of Use a person must be at least 18 years old to use the application. One might think that this is very odd, because it is just a weather app that does not contain any explicit material. But actually, the developers need to state this, because they are only allowed to collect information about the users only if they are adults. Of course there is no way of knowing which user is young and which is old so the application collects data regardless.

The program places cookies on your computer so you could sign in to certain services and to help personalize your experience. Local Temperature might also place a browser cookie on behalf of a sponsor when an advertisement for that sponsor is shown. So not only will the developers keep tabs on you, but their clients will do so as well. The information they collect involves collecting browsing history, approximate geographical location, and so on. The Privacy policy of the application states that you may be asked to provide some personally identifiable information, such as an email address, username in order to communicate with you, conduct surveys, send promotional junk mail, and so on. In our opinion this is quite dangerous, because the owners of Local Temperature or their partners may send you emails that feature malicious content, so you definitely should not trust the developers or their partners.

Local Temperature is an application that does not work like it is supposed to. We think there is no need for such a program since during the last decade Microsoft made sure to include such a function in one form or the other. The application collects information about the users and shares it with third parties, and promotes unreliable content that might put your computer’s security at risk. Therefore, we recommend that you remove Local Temperature.
