EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar

What is EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar?

EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar is a new product of Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. This piece of software should enable users to “access local and national weather forecasts via trusted weather services.” You will really find a bar with quick access buttons at the top of your homepage and the New Tab page; however, you should know that you do not necessarily need to have this browser plugin installed on your computer if you wish to access those websites. Even though it might really seem that EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar is a useful application, many users still find it quite annoying when they notice that hp.myway.com (a search engine used by this toolbar) has been set in the place of their homepages and the New Tab URLs on all the browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox). To undo the changes EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar has applied, you have to remove this application from your computer fully. In fact, you should get rid of it not only to remove hp.myway.com, but also to avoid problems EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar might cause. We will elaborate on that in the following paragraphs of this report.testtest

What does EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar do?

Once EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar is installed on the computer, it will change your homepage and the New Tab URL to hp.myway.com. This website is nothing more than a search tool – it has a search box in the middle and contains quick access buttons leading to Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Yahoo!, and other popular websites. As has been already mentioned, you will see a toolbar with buttons leading to websites with weather forecasts as well. You do not need EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar to access those websites. Also, it has been found that hp.myway.com will track your searches if you use it as your default search engine. Even though search queries are usually put into the category of non-personally identifiable information, they might contain personal details (e.g. name, surname, and address) too if you have ever submitted them yourself. Fortunately, this search tool is still primarily interested in the non-personally identifiable information like browser type and language, pages viewed, and search results clicked. As it is stated in the Privacy Policy, all the gathered data will be shared with advertisers and ad networks, business partners, and authorized service providers mainly. If you do not wish to reveal any information about yourself to these third parties, you have to set another search tool in the place of hp.myway.com as soon as possible. To remove this questionable search tool, you will have to remove EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar fully as well.

Even though the search tool used by EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar contains all those quick access buttons and do not seem to be harmful at all, specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com say that it might be quite risky to search for the information on the web using it because, even though it is powered by Google, it might provide users with the sponsored search results. In other words, you might see advertisements on the search results page. They will be inserted among those trustworthy search results to make them less noticeable. We do not say that all these ads are associated with bad websites, but, theoretically, you might be taken anywhere. In other words, after clicking on one of those sponsored search results, you might end up on an untrustworthy website.

Where does EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar come from?

EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar has two official sources. It can be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/easyweatheralert/naopgcbjimmmnkbdipnafajjjkanhfaj?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog) or users can get it from its official website easyweatheralert.com. On top of that, it is known that this product of Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. is capable of entering computers in software bundles as well. It does not really matter where you have downloaded EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar from because we still do not encourage you to keep this potentially unwanted program installed on the computer. Do not forget to take care of those additional programs that have been installed together with this Mindspark toolbar as well. You should use an automatic scanner to find them quicker.
