Remove EasyWeatherAlert redirect (Virus Removal Instructions)

removal by Olivia Morelli - - | Type: System tools

Reasons why experience EasyWeatherAlert redirect problems occur

We have noticed that some users tend to install suggested programs after a cursory glance to their descriptions. As a result, you might even start calling this tool as EasyWeatherAlert virus shortly after installing it; however, this program has nothing to do with viruses, and its functionality is entirely legitimate. If you recently came across EasyWeatherAlert’s site that promises you to provide “quick and accurate local weather forecasts – all from one Chrome New Tab” and if it has convinced you to install this application, your current home page was probably replaced with a site that presents a search engine. This search engine is presented as “Search enhanced by Google.” However, do you know that the word “enhanced” hints you that search results are going to be modified? It appears that this system tool also adjusts search results according to data obtained about user’s interests. It uses several tracking technologies to automatically collect information such as IP address, search query text, results clicked, pages viewed, search history, and related data. It helps this tool to understand what the user typically searches on the Internet and what type of content interests the user.

Questions about EasyWeatherAlert redirect

Based on such data, EasyWeatherAlert inserts sponsored third-party links into search results (these results are marked as Ads). Beware of results that take you to suspicious-looking websites, and remember that this system tool has no control over such sites. It only advertises them; however, we would like to warn you that third-party websites can be dangerous. Therefore, it is better to avoid EasyWeatherAlert redirects. Besides, if you wish to explore organic search results and not paid ones, we believe that you will be disappointed with MyWay search engine that this tool presents. If you do not want to keep such application on your system, remove EasyWeatherAlert using instructions provided at the end of this post. EasyWeatherAlert removal should be easy because we have provided pictures explaining how to reach certain system settings and folders that might contain files that belong to this potentially unwanted program (PUP).

How did you install this application?

You could install this program voluntarily, but you could also drop it on the system without realizing it. In case you haven’t been looking for this application and didn’t click anywhere to install it, most likely it has stepped into your computer system together with another free program. You can always refuse to install optional programs by checking settings set for the installation procedure. So switch the pre-selected installation mode to either Custom or Advanced one and then look through the list of bonus programs suggested to you. You might also spot some suggestions to alter your browser settings. Deselect such offers and continue.

Recently, the developer of this program contacted us asking us to remove this post from 2-spyware.com website. We believe that we shouldn’t do that as long as programs that we offer for the removal of EasyWeatherAlert can detect it and help users to remove it from the system. As it is mentioned under each of download buttons, we ARE affiliated with these anti-malware programs, and while some of them are free, others can remove a virus only after purchasing them. These mentions fully fulfill each of the requirements of FTC.

Nevertheless, we have recently decided to make a revision of this and other posts that are related to this developer. We claim that all of them are described properly.

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
