Do you know what Temperature Scout is?
Temperature Scout is an advertising-supported application (adware) that pretends to be really useful. Our specialists have visited its official website and noticed that this program promises to keep users informed about the temperature in their area. If you visit its official website (temperaturescout.com) too, you will find out very soon that Temperature Scout “automatically detects your location and displays the current temperature for your area in your desktop tray.” It really seems to be a beneficial application, so that is why users install it on their systems. We cannot say that this program does not do anything that it promises; however, we still do not think that it is worth keeping it installed because this program is going to display commercial advertisements. It is very likely that it will not start doing that immediately because it needs to gather data about users’ activities on the web to provide the most relevant ads.
