Do you know what Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com is?
Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com is a new browser hijacker released by Polarity Technologies Ltd. It does look like an ordinary search tool because it has a search box in the middle and, like other search tools, returns search results, but it is not what it seems to be at first glance, believe us. There are no trustworthy search engines that change browsers’ settings without permission. Reputable search tools never fall into the browser hijacker category either, so you should get rid of Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com mercilessly. If you keep it set as your homepage and default search tool, it might redirect you to untrustworthy websites. No, it will not do that automatically – you might end up on these pages if you use it to perform web searches and click on modified search results it provides users with. Not all search results returned to users after they enter a search query are modified, but you will be presented with them sooner or later, so be cautious when you perform searches using Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com. If you ask our opinion, we do not recommend using this search tool. If you decide not to use it at all, there is no point in keeping it set on browsers either. Also, you could not set a new homepage and default search tool as long as it keeps places of the default homepage and search tool occupied.
If Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com is opened to you automatically when you launch the web browser you use to perform web searches, it means that you have encountered the browser hijacker. It does not differ much from other Polarity Technologies Ltd. websites categorized as browser hijackers by specialists, e.g. Search.yourmapscenter.com and Search.youremailnow.com. To be more specific, it hijacks users’ web browsers the first thing. According to our experienced team of specialists, it should be able to change settings of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. We are sure you have at least one of these browsers installed on your computer. If so, it will not take long for you to notice the appearance of Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com. If your browsers’ settings have already been changed against your will, it does not mean that you must use this search tool to perform web searches. Actually, specialists do not even recommend using it for searching the web, so you should delete the browser hijacker from your system without further consideration.Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com screenshot

In non-techie terms:
The outer appearance of Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com is misleading. It does look like a trustworthy search provider, but it is not. First, it acts as a browser hijacker, i.e. it changes browsers’ settings without the users’ knowledge. Second, it might show modified search results that, in the worst-case scenario, might expose users to potential threats by taking them to dubious websites. Last but not least, if you enter any personal details in the search box of Search.hyourweatherinfonow.com, they will all be recorded as search queries and might even be disclosed to third parties. Of course, this search tool gathers some non-personally identifiable details automatically too.
