At the moment, Nilla Weather is compatible just with the Google Chrome browser. Consequently one of its distribution channels is the chrome.google.com/webstore page; the extension’s ID number is cllccgidmbjjdgfiigpnjfmfalbpgkmm. According to the description given on the Chrome Web Store page, the potentially unwanted program is supposed to automatically locate and display weather for the user’s location hourly and for the next five days. Moreover, it says it is easy to use, and it is possible to pick either Fahrenheit or Celsius. However, it appears to be the program might be not so useful after all since there are a few user complaints on the same Chrome Web Store page. For example, one of the users said he has troubles switching from Fahrenheit to Celsius, while the other plugin’s user complained about annoying advertisements forcing him to install the software again.
Furthermore, besides the Chrome Web Store page, Nilla Weather could be distributed with bundled software installers, or it might be advertised on suspicious pop-up ads displayed by threats like adware, browser hijackers, and so on. Therefore, it is entirely possible some of you may have received the extension unknowingly. For instance, if the potentially unwanted program travels with bundled installers, provided you choose automatic installation settings and did not pay attention at the information given on the configuration wizard; it could have slipped in without you noticing anything. Nonetheless, once installed it should become visible because the plugin is supposed to place a small icon on the browser’s top-right corner. Clicking the mentioned icon should open a small window with the weather forecast.
All things considered, what we have learned about Nilla Weather shows that it could display not only annoying and possibly malicious advertising content, but also invade user’s privacy. Thus, for users who downloaded the application because they needed one for learning weather conditions, we would advise looking for a more reliable tool. As for the potentially unwanted program, we would recommend erasing it at once. If you require some help while removing the extension, you should have a look at the instructions available below; they will show how to complete this task manually. Users who prefer automatic features can install a reliable antimalware tool too and scan their systems to detect and get rid of the unreliable plugin or other possible threats.
