What is Easy Weather Today Promos?

Easy Weather Today Promos is a piece of rogue software, endorsed as a tool for quick access to weather-related content and it is classified as adware. It operates by delivering intrusive advertisement campaigns. In other words, it delivers various undesirable and even harmful adverts. Additionally, Easy Weather Today Promos spies on users' browsing habits and gathers sensitive information related to Internet browsing. Due to the dubious methods employed to distribute this adware, it is also deemed to be a PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application).

Website used to promote Easy Weather Today Promos adware

Adware enables the placement of pop-ups, banners, coupons, surveys and other intrusive advertisements - typically, on any visited website. Easy Weather Today Promos behaves in this manner as well. The delivered ads diminish browsing quality, since they slow down the browsing speed and limit website visibility (by overlaying page content). However, due to where such adverts redirect to and for their ability of making stealthy downloads/installations - they are considered to be a threat to device/user safety. To elaborate, upon being clicked, intrusive advertisements redirect to sale-based/promotional (of both legitimate and dubious products), rogue/untrustworthy, compromised, deceptive, scam and malicious sites. Furthermore, these ads can be triggered (by being clicked) to execute scripts, designed to download/install software (e.g. PUAs) without user consent. As mentioned in the introduction, Easy Weather Today Promos has data tracking abilities. It can monitor browsing activity (URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries typed, etc.) and collect vulnerable data extracted from it (IP addresses, geolocations and other details). What is more, the collected data often contains personally identifiable information and PUA developers monetize it. They usually share and/or sell the data to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals), likewise seeking to misuse it for financial gain. In summary, presence of unwanted apps like Easy Weather Today Promos on devices can lead to system infections, financial losses, severe privacy issues and even identity theft. Therefore, to ensure device integrity and user safety - it is strongly advised to remove all suspect applications and browser extensions/plug-ins immediately upon detection.

Free Package Tracker PlusMessengerHub and Damn Good Recipe Promos are a few examples of other adwares. They appear ordinary and innocuous. Users are enticed into download/installation with offers of various "useful" functions. However, the promised functionalities rarely work as advertised and in most cases - they do not work at all. In fact, this is true of practically all PUAs. Unwanted apps have but one purpose - to generate profit for the developers. Therefore, instead of delivering on any promises, PUAs can run intrusive ad campaigns, force-open untrustworthy and malicious webpages, hijack browsers and track private data.

How did Easy Weather Today Promos install on my computer?

Some PUAs (e.g. Easy Weather Today Promos) have "official" promotional pages, from which they can be downloaded. However, these applications are more commonly downloaded/installed together with other programs. This false marketing technique of pre-packing regular software with unwanted or malicious additions - is termed "bundling". Rushed download/installation processes (e.g. ignored terms, skipped steps and sections, etc.) - increase the risk of unintentionally allowing dubious and/or bundled content into the system. Intrusive advertisements proliferate such apps as well. Once clicked on, they can execute scripts to stealthily download/install PUAs.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

All products should be researched to verify their legitimacy, prior to download/installation and/or purchase. It is recommended to only use official and trustworthy download channels. Unofficial and free file-hosting (freeware) websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks (BitTorrent, Gnutella, eMule, etc.) and other third party downloaders - often offer deceptive and/or bundled content; hence, they are deemed to be untrustworthy. When downloading/installing, it is advised to read terms, study all available options, use the "Custom/Advanced" settings and opt-out from supplementary apps, tools, features and other additions. It is just as important to exercise caution when browsing. Intrusive ads appear legitimate, however they redirect to highly questionable webpages (e.g. gambling, pornography, adult-dating, etc.). In case of encounters with advertisements and/or redirects of this kind, users must inspect the system and immediately remove all suspicious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins from it. If your computer is already infected with Easy Weather Today Promos, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate this adware.
