Weatherly Removal Tool

 

Weatherly, an unreliable application or we can say an online portal which assures you to provide live weather forecast but, instead redirects you to unreliable websites or links which in turn infects or harms your system. Weatherly is a browser hijacker which redirects you to its own set of pages which gives those pages some good amount of traffic, gaining profits because of online advertisements or ads by google AdWords.

Home Page

How malicious is it?

As soon as this virus or hijacker enters your system it takes over the full control of all your browsers and their settings because of which you start facing problems like navigating you from one webpage to other automatically, browser’s default homepage getting changed etc. It enters in your system as an extension but then starts controlling your browser.

Weatherly redirects you to third party web pages, giving them traffic and creating revenue.

How did it get there?

Generally, Weatherly is bundled up with other software that you tend to download from the internet and it also comes by the random third party pop-ups and ad clicks you do on websites.
Major chances of this virus being inserted in your system is during the installation of some random software which you think is legit but instead of that software, this harmful virus is given free passage in your system.

Therefore when Weatherly has entered your system, it will set its own homepage and will redirect the search engine of your browser to “http://search.myweathertab.com“.
