Remove SysWeatherAlert ads (Updated Guide)

removal by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Adware

Why do I see SysWeatherAlert ads on your computer?

SysWeatherAlert ads can be very annoying. Besides, they may show up on your PC’s desktop without letting you know about that prior this activity. If you have been suffering from this issue for a while, it means you have SysWeatherAlert virus, which is also considered a potentially unwanted program, on your computer. This could happen without your knowledge because potentially unwanted programs, such as adware-type programs and browser hijackers are actively spread as legitimate and useful components to freeware. The official website of SysWeatherAlert presents it as a convenient tool to check weather forecasts in other cities and states. However, unlike other adware-type programs, this one reveals that it is ad-supported. To prevent issues that we will reveal in this post, you need to remove SysWeatherAlert from your computer. Although it is identified a potentially unwanted program, you can do that with the help of Reimage Reimage Cleaner .

Questions about SysWeatherAlert ads

As soon as SysWeatherAlert is added to the system, it starts tracking user’s browsing history, IP address, PC’s geolocation, search queries and similar information. In addition to that, it shares this information with third-party affiliates for marketing purposes. This statement in Sys Weather Alert Privacy Policy proves that the information it collects might be used for:

targeted ad-selection […] to personalize your experience by ensuring that advertisements for products and services you see will appeal to you, a practice known as behavioral advertising, and to undertake web analytics. […] The Service may contain links to third parties’ software or websites. While we attempt to provide links to sites that value your privacy, we cannot be responsible for the content or privacy policies of such sites.

Targeted ads by SysWeatherAlert are not trustworthy. You can never know where they will lead you to; you can end up on safe and even well-known Internet sites, but you can also find yourself on high-risk web pages. Dangerous websites can trick you into installing possibly dangerous software or ask you to provide personally identifiable information, so avoid doing that. To keep your computer protected and to avoid visiting untrustworthy websites, do not click on SysWeatherAlert ads. Also, you should think about SysWeatherAlert removal.

How can I install this extension on my computer?

Although you can download this app from its official page, we doubt that you have got this program from there. PUPs commonly reach victims’ computers when bundled with another software. If user installs bundled software, he or she helps SysWeatherAlert hijack computer and make system changes on it. Luckily, it is possible to decompose such packs. For that, you should carefully behave when installing new programs on your computer. Once you launch software’s installer, do not rush. Set Advanced or Custom installation settings and adjust software’s components the way you want. If you see any suspicious additions such as SysWeatherAlert app, opt them out. Moreover, opt out all offers to install dubious browser toolbars or make changes to your browser’s homepage.

    SysWeatherAlert ads are deceptive – I ended up on suspicious websites promoting some shady web lotteries.

    Me too! Right after it redirected me there I understood these ads are somehow modified. They will never lead you to websites they supposedly advertise!
