The Your Weather Info Now is a Chrome extension, which offers to provide its users with valuable information regarding the weather conditions and the overall forecast in their area, or in any city around the world. While this certainly sounds useful, you should not forget that there are numerous free online services that can be discovered by simply using your favorite search engine. The difference between the aforementioned services and the Your Weather Info Now is that the former will not ask you to install dubious browser add-ons to access the information. Needless to say, you should always prefer to use a service that does not demand anything from you!

Users who agree to install the Your Weather Info Now will not be put in danger, but they might experience some undesired changes to their Web browser's behavior. This software product has been identified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), and installing it might cause minor side effects which users are likely to find annoying. One of the major changes that the Your Weather Info Now is known to bring is that it replaces the Google Chrome's default new tab page with Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com. This search page contains a search field, links to popular websites, and a collection of bookmarks that lead the user to popular weather forecasting services. Nothing of this is valuable since the weather services can be accessed by using your browser's integrated bookmarks feature easily.

Users who do not wish to use the Your Weather Info Now and want to restore the Chrome's settings back to normal should proceed to uninstall this add-on either manually or with the help of a trustworthy security scanner.
