Search.yourweatherinfonow.com is a questionable search engine that can appear in your browsers in two ways: Either you install it knowingly or it comes in a bundle and you do not realize the changes it makes in your browsers until later. However, it does not really matter if this tool modifies your browsers with or without your permission when it comes to categorizing it. What matters is that it is capable of changing certain settings and therefore it has been classified as a browser hijacker. Obviously, if this hijacker shows up without your permission, it is a breach of your privacy. As a matter of fact, most of the time it is the user who does not read the EULA carefully and does not know about the changes. But just because these are mentioned in the legal documents, it does not mean that these are beneficial or benign changes. Unfortunately, the presence of this browser hijacker can pose a threat to your system’s security and your privacy as well. Therefore, we advise you to remove Search.yourweatherinfonow.com as soon as possible, because the longer you keep it on board the more chances it will have to put your system at risk.
You can install this browser extension directly from its website, yourweatherinfonow.com. But, if you do not read its legal documents carefully, you can easily end up with this search engine page as your home page, new tab page, and default search engine as well. So whenever you open your browsers, or open a new tab, or try to use the built-in search engine, you will be forced to use the services of this unreliable tool. However, there is only a slight chance that you have found this website anyway and installed this hijacker from there. It is more likely that this tool entered together with other malicious software installers.
Yes, it is possible that you are facing multiple threats right now because this browser hijacker has been found bundled with other malware infections. If you have installed such a bundle, it can mean two things: First, you have visited suspicious file-sharing websites and clicked on a third-party ad or downloaded free software knowingly; second, you had already had malware infection on board, such as adware, and you clicked on a third-party pop-up ad at one point. However, it does not really matter now because, either way, your computer may be infected with a number of malware programs. That is why it will not be enough to delete Search.yourweatherinfonow.com only to make your PC all secure. It will be important to run a system scan to identify all the threats that may be endangering the health of your computer.
Once this browser hijacker activates itself and makes the necessary changes in your browsers, you will be exposed to the rather questionable third-party services it offers you. On the top of the page, you can see a fake toolbar with a search tool and a few quick links to websites related to weather, and, of course, a search box in the middle of the page. We advise you not to use any of these tools because it is possible that this hijacker injects third-party ads and links into these websites. We have also noticed that your searches go through a remote server, extsearch.maxwebsearch.com, and then get redirected to a modified Yahoo search results page. Here is what the EULA says about the use of this tool:
You understand that during Use of and/or by Using the Your Weather Now Software, you may encounter Third-Party Software that may be deemed offensive, indecent or objectionable. Nevertheless, you agree to use the Your Weather Now Software at your own risk and that Your Weather Now shall not have any liability to you with respect to such content.
And what risks you may encounter? Well, for example, by clicking on corrupt links or unreliable third-party ads, you can end up on malicious websites. This can mean getting infected with more malware programs, even more dangerous ones, such as Trojans, rootkits, and ransomware. But you might also get scammed by cyber criminals, including being tricked into revealing your banking details. That is why you should remove Search.yourweatherinfonow.com ASAP.
It seems that this browser hijacker has no uninstaller; therefore, you need to reset your browsers in order to change all the settings back to default. Please follow our guide below if you do not know how to do this. Since it is essential that you keep some basic rules of web surfing in order to protect your PC, we recommend that you not visit unreliable or unfamiliar websites and not click on third-party advertisements. Also, you need to be careful opening e-mails and their attachments whose sender you do not know. But even keeping all these simple rules cannot make your computer as protected as it could be with a reliable antimalware program.
