WeatherBlink Toolbar does not look like a threat at first sight, and that is its power. Although we cannot classify it as a malicious infection, some of the features of this application are highly questionable. For one, some users recognize it as a browser hijacker, and that is because it can modify the homepage and search provider settings, depending on the browser you use. Speaking of browsers, if you install the toolbar via Internet Explorer, it is actually installed as a Windows application; whereas, Chrome and Firefox users install it as a browser extension. Due to this, how you delete this potentially unwanted program (PUP) depends on the web browser you use. The good news is that it should not be difficult for you to remove WeatherBlink Toolbar from your operating system; especially if you use our guidance. If you cannot wait to get rid of this PUP, you can scroll down to the guide below, but we encourage you to continue reading to learn more about the extension to understand it better.
FreePDFCombiner Toolbar, ShoppingDealsLive Toolbar, PresidentialBuzz Toolbar, and hundreds of other toolbars have many things in common with WeatherBlink Toolbar. That is because they were all created by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. This company does not have the best reputation because it creates applications/extensions that do not seem to offer beneficial services and that appear to be used as advertising tools in the background. Whether you install WeatherBlink Toolbar from weatherblink.com, chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/weatherblink/fdfbfflhpgdmhemficnjidglfliigejm, or using some random installer, it is likely to present you with third-party offers. For example, you could be offered “Search Extension by Ask” by APN, LLC. Needless to say, if you use a random installer, the number of programs and extensions bundled together with the toolbar could be huge. We strongly suggest installing a malware scanner onto the computer if other pieces got installed because you want to know if you need to delete anything else besides the PUP. But do you really need to delete it? That is up to you to decide, but our research team has found that the program is not as beneficial and reliable as it might appear to be at first.
Although WeatherBlink Toolbar provides easy access links to wunderground.com (Hurricane Tracker, Local Weather, Detailed Forecast, Radar), pollen.com (Allergies), and accuweather.com (Weather News) sites that offer weather-related information, this PUP is not beneficial. You can add easy-access links to these sites – as well as other popular sites that are represented via the home page – to your bookmarks, and so the PUP simply loses its purpose. Besides that, it offers nothing useful. The search tool it represents is not trustworthy, and although it is allegedly enhanced by Google, it can be used to showcase promotional content, and interacting with it could be dangerous. Our research team does not recommend trusting or using search.myway.com because unreliable links could be presented via it. Also, information is tracked and recorded by its web cookies. Even if WeatherBlink Toolbar does not record or leak private information, it still could help unfamiliar and potentially malicious parties obtain information that could be used for a monetary gain or to create successful scams.
