Do you know what WeatherGrind is?
WeatherGrind advertises itself as a beneficial weather program. If you open its official website weathergrind.com, you will notice that it promises to enable users to keep track of the local weather forecast. In addition, it promises to display whether alerts when necessary in order to keep you informed. We understand those users who believe that WeatherGrind is trustworthy and decide to install it on their systems because the application might really look quite reliable at first. Our team of specialists has decided to check the application in order to find out whether it can be trusted 100%. Unfortunately, it has turned out that WeatherGrind is just a medium to display intrusive commercial advertisements for users. As this software might display advertisements and cause redirections to third-party web pages, we have put it into the category of advertising-supported applications (adware). It is not the best idea to keep adware installed because these applications are more dangerous than beneficial.
As you already know, WeatherGrind might display windows with various offers, and might also redirect to other web pages. First of all, specialists have noticed that it is closely associated with wunderground.com because it opens this web page after a user double-clicks on its main shortcut. Actually, the application itself does not have its own unique interface, which means that you will see the presence of wunderground.com and, probably, other web pages every time you open it. The web page itself is not dangerous; however, this shows that WeatherGrind is not as beneficial as it claims to be. Even though wunderground.com itself is not a harmful web page, you should be careful with all those offers you will see on your screen because they might even take you to hacked web pages promoting malware. We hope that it is clear for you that you risk infecting your system with malicious software by keeping WeatherGrind on your computer.WeatherGrind screenshot
