What is Rainy Day Travel?
Rainy Day Travel is an adware application that is highly shady, and it could be related to a variety of potential computer security threats. The program tries to create an image of a reliable tool that can provide users with some useful services. However, adware programs seldom manage to practice what they preach. Instead, the “official” functions thinly veil their main objective, which is making as much money as possible by displaying commercial advertisements. That is probably not the reason this program appeared on your system, so if you want to make sure that you are no longer annoying by various pop-ups, you have to remove Rainy Day Travel at once.
Where does Rainy Day Travel come from?
We have covered similar applications several times before. Rainy Day Travel belongs to a group of adware applications that includes Moneyzila, NewsCert, DatingDone, CareerPronto, and so on. As you can probably tell, these programs try to make users think that they have some useful functions, but the truth is that adware applications use such “functions” as a shield to help them get into your system. Once they succeed, the programs unleash they actual purpose: commercial advertising.
So how come this application is there in your computer if you do not remember installing it? The point is that it does appear out of nowhere, nor does it infect your system behind your back. You are the one who installed this application even if you were not aware of that.
These adware programs can be downloaded from their official websites, and Rainy Day Travel is no exception. The site is located at rainydaytravel.com, and the download button works just fine. We believe that users seldom download such applications willingly, but even if you think that getting these programs from the official website would be safe, you better think again. This adware program is notorious for bundling browser hijackers, adware, and other unwanted applications its official installer. So it is obviously fishy from the very start, and yet there are other ways how unsuspecting users get into this adware net.
One of the most common methods of adware distribution is bundled software. Just like the program includes additional apps in its official installer, Rainy Day Travel itself might be added in third-party installers of random applications that are available at third-party file sharing sites. Therefore, you might help this program enter your system when you download other applications. That is why it is important to remain cautious and attentive whenever you install new programs.
What does Rainy Day Travel do?
This application behaves just like any other adware application. The moment this program settles in, it loads a new browser window, redirecting you to a website with the Dating Smith image on top. It also loads other legitimate dating websites like updateauto.freedecheck.com, but you can probably tell that traveling has nothing to do with dating sites, and this program supposedly should help you find various traveling tips.
What’s more, the program will collect information on your web browsing habits. With this information, it will know what kind of commercial content it should target at you. After all, if you see a pop-up about the latest hotel deals, and you have just been looking for hotel reservations, it is only natural that you would be inclined to click pop-ups that contain similar info. However, we would not recommend doing that as there is no telling where those pop-ups might lead you to. In the worst-case scenario, the link in a pop-up might redirect to a malware-related websites, and from there, you would be only one step away from a severe infection.
