Do you need to check a weather report constantly? Weather Waves is an extension that is meant to provide you with current weather-related info directly via your web browser (Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome), but even though it can be useful in some ways, it is also very suspicious in other ways. Due to this, the recommendation is that you familiarize yourself with this extension. Once you have all the information about it, you can decide whether you want to continue using it or remove it completely. If you have recently inspected your operating system with a trusted malware scanner, it might have identified the seemingly legitimate extension as a PUA/PUP (potentially unwanted application/program). That is how we identify it as well. There are reasons for that, and if you are not sure why you might want to delete Weather Waves as a PUP, you should continue reading.
Innover Group is responsible for Weather Waves. It is also the developer of HistorySee, Search Anything, Safeplex Search, and other PUPs. The company always creates unique download websites and Chrome Web Store installers to represent every single extension individually. So, did you download it from weatherwaves.co or chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/weather-waves/jpdlfloakhhhcbkcplblnohkdkflbmki? If you do not recall doing that, perhaps you installed Weather Waves using a third-party installer. PUPs like this one are often spread using bundled downloaders, which means that they come attached to something else. In most cases, it is another PUP, a browser hijacker, or even a more serious infection. So, if you remember using a third-party installer or if you have no clue where the PUP came from at all, scan your system immediately. Employ a legitimate malware scanner, and it will let you know if you should remove other threats besides the PUP. Of course, it must be noted that we do not claim that you must remove the extension. You have to decide its fate on your own.
You do not need to be experienced at the removal of PUPs to successfully remove Weather Waves. This is a simple extension, and you can eliminate it from Firefox and Chrome browsers using simple techniques. If you have never erased unwanted extensions from these browsers, you can follow the instructions below to learn how to do it. This, of course, is not an ideal option if the PUP entered your operating system along with other suspicious apps/extensions or malware. In that case, our recommendation is to install a legitimate anti-malware program that will clean out PUPs and malware from your operating system automatically. Of course, our number-one reason for recommending such a program is the full-time protection it can provide. Note that even if you eliminate Weather Waves successfully yourself, your system and browsers could remain vulnerable.
