Severe Weather Check
Severe Weather Check is supposed to be helpful, but, instead, it is mysterious, suspicious, and, most likely, unreliable. According to our researchers, this potentially unwanted program (PUP) is introduced to Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox users at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/severe-weather-check/heddedcjpankenbhoccbjdhkadmaagnn and severeweathercheck.com. The installer, needless to say, is free, and the information offered by developers suggests that the extension can present trustworthy weather-related information and a web search tool. Basically, the program sounds pretty harmless and even beneficial, which is why it is no surprise that many Chrome and Firefox users have downloaded it already. If you are thinking about doing the same, we suggest you keep reading this report, and you will find out if that is a good idea. In case the extension has been installed already, and you have figured out already that deleting it is right move, we have created a complete Severe Weather Check removal guide below. If you have trouble following it, do not hesitate to express your concerns in the comments section.
The only good thing about Severe Weather Check is that is presents easy-access links to pollen.com, theweathernetwork.com, accuweather.com, and flunearyou.org, all of which are legitimate, harmless websites. However, if you think about it for a moment, can’t you just bookmark these websites for easy-access? Of course, you can. Ultimately, the PUP does NOT offer exclusive services, and so there is no point in keeping it around. Unfortunately, when Severe Weather Check takes over the browser’s homepage and/or the new tab page, it also presents an attractive search service. All queries redirect to Yahoo Search, which many people consider to be a terrific search engine. Unfortunately, in this case, the results can be modified, and that makes the tool unreliable. Yahoo Search is not at fault here. Blame the potentially unwanted program that uses the search results page as the prime spot for advertising. Overall, the PUP is useless, it tracks information, it can redirect you to Yahoo Search without permission, and, worst of all, it can feed you ads without you realizing it, and these are the reasons you should remove this extension ASAP.
There are many reasons why you should delete Severe Weather Check, and now the only questions left to answer is “how?” It is simple enough to remove this undesirable extension manually, which you can do using the instructions below. Of course, we recommend this solution only if other potentially unwanted programs and threats do not exist on your operating system and browsers. If the malware scanner has detected other threats, you have to get rid of them as well, and taking on the task manually can be too challenging. Luckily, you do not need to exert yourself because the right anti-malware application can take care of everything for you. It can automatically remove Severe Weather Check and whatever else deserves it. It also can strengthen your system and keep it guarded against PUPs and more malicious threats in the future.
