Weather Chickn

No doubt that Weather Chickn cannot be downloaded from the official website, so it might be spread through untrustworthy file-sharing web pages. Moreover, this application does not work as it should do, because instead of showing you weather predictions, it might collect data related to your browsing habits and use it for marketing purposes. To keep your PC secure, you should avoid such doubtful software, and it would be smart to erase the program. Accordingly, we will provide the removal instructions at the end of the article. Thus, you can either keep reading the text, if you want to know more about Weather Chickn, or you could slide to the bottom and follow the removal instructions.

To begin with, the application falls under the category of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), since it does not provide the features it promises. What’s more, Weather Chickn could be spread through bundled software, which is available on suspicious file-sharing websites. Apparently, when you launch a bundled installer you will be asked if you want to get particular additional programs, e.g. it could be Weather Chickn. Most likely, you either did not notice that the PUP was suggested on the setup wizard, or you did not read its terms of use and assumed that it should be a useful application.

Our researchers noticed that the PUP might connect to its servers and download various applications. These programs could be malicious or less harmful ones, such as adware. Still, they might be dangerous to your system, disturb your browsing or they could slow down your computer’s performance. You should not allow untrustworthy applications to download software without your consent.

A few statements in the software’s Privacy Policy say that the PUP might collect anonymous and private user information. It appears that your data could be shared with “third party marketing partners; (6) with third party research companies, <…> for data validation, aggregation, enhancement, verification and suppression purposes, and for research, marketing, advertising, and data aggregation purposes; or (7) for any other purpose for which You provide consent.” Hence, if you install the PUP, you not only agree that your data would be collected, but also you allow Weather Chickn to share it with other interested parties and use it for various purposes. Your private information should be collected only if you submit it yourself, so you should make sure that the site or a program, which requires your sensitive data is reliable.

Furthermore, Weather Chickn claims that they “may allow third-parties, including our authorized service providers, parent and subsidiary companies, affiliates, advertising companies, and ad networks, to display advertisements or place ad tags or beacons on or via our Software and/or Services.” In other words, the application may allow third-party companies gather information related to your browsing and display advertisements. It is advisable to stay away from third-party ads or similar content since it may lead you to their sites. Some of the third-party web pages could promote unreliable software, e.g. adware, browser hijackers or different PUPs. In fact, third-party sites might have different policies on users’ privacy, so they could gather your private information.

The application is rather suspicious, and it might promote unreliable third-party content. Naturally, we cannot be sure if the program will cause you any harm, but you should be aware that there are some risks you have to consider. If you decide to get rid of the PUP, you could use the instructions provided below. The manual removal steps will show you how to delete the application’s created Registry keys and main folders in the %APPDATA% and %PROGRAMFILES% directories. Although, if this looks too complicated to you, there is another option available. You can erase the PUP automatically with a security tool that you choose to install. The antimalware tool will delete any threats that it will locate on your system, including Weather Chickn. If you want to protect your computer from suspicious or malicious software, you should keep your security tool active and updated. If you want to ask about something else related to the PUP, you could leave us a comment here or write us through social media.
