Do not install Your Weather Info Now even though it seems to be quite a useful piece of software because Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com will be set as your new homepage and search tool immediately. Your browsers’ settings will also be changed if this browser hijacker ever slithers onto your computer without your knowledge. It can affect all popular browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, so if the browser hijacker infiltrates your computer, you will soon find out about its successful entrance. We have to admit that Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com does look trustworthy at first glance, so it does not surprise us at all that many users decide to ignore the sudden appearance of Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com. Some of them do not even notice the changes applied and perform web searches using this search tool without fear. The search engine set is far from a Trojan, ransomware, or another harmful malicious application that might cause serious problems, but it would still be best to get rid of Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com, our security specialists say. As long as it stays set as your new homepage and default search tool, you could not set a new reputable search provider.

Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com is not the first product of Polarity Technologies Ltd. This company has released a bunch of legitimate-looking websites that, in reality, are pure browser hijackers. Even though their appearance suggests that they are ordinary search providers, the truth is that they are far from legitimate search tools. First, decent search tools never replace users’ preferred pages set as homepages and default search tools on browsers without permission. Second, reputable search providers return search results based on the entered search query. That is, users see search results that open websites with pieces of information they are searching for. Unfortunately, Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com acts in the opposite way. It not only hijacks users’ browsers, i.e. changes their settings without their permission, but it also returns search results that might contain some modified search results. These modified search results drive traffic to other websites, but it does not necessarily mean that you will end up on the page containing the information you need when you click on any of these modified search results displayed because they only promote various websites and, theoretically, you might be taken anywhere, even to those websites that do not have anything you are searching for and are completely untrustworthy. In the worst-case scenario, you might end up on malicious websites. We have only one piece of advice for you – remove Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com if you do not want to face any security-related problems.
Get rid of Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com as soon as possible also if you do not want it to record information about you automatically.

You should not enter any personal details in the search box that belongs to Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com either because they will all be recorded as “search data.” Since all recorded details might be shared with third parties, advertisers, and partners, it is only a question of time when problems related to your privacy arise if you provide personal information.
