What is Temperature Scout?
Temperature Scout is an application that will keep you informed about the temperature in your area. It seems that it will detect your location automatically and then provide you with the weather forecast. You will see it in the small window at the bottom-right corner of your desktop. Temperature Scout seems to be a really promising program, so users often download and install it on their systems from its official website temperaturescout.com. Of course, there are versions which are available on third-party web pages only or travel bundled with other programs. We do not think that these versions can be trusted because they might be modified by cyber criminals and thus act in an undesirable way. Actually, the version available on the official website of Temperature Scout is not perfect too. Specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com say that it might show advertisements too. Thus, this program is put into the category of adware programs.
How does Temperature Scout act?
You might really start seeing ads after you install Temperature Scout. Commercials usually start appearing on users’ screens after some time, so if you do not see ads immediately after you install Temperature Scout, it does not mean that you will not see them in the future. If you already see them, we suggest ignoring them completely. In other words, you should not click on them. If you do not listen to our advice, there is a possibility that nothing bad will happen; however, you should also know that it is possible that you will be redirected to an unreliable website after doing that. This web page might seem completely decent, but it might still contain malicious software. Malware usually enters systems after users click on links placed on such websites or download something from them.
There is no doubt that adware will generate and show commercial advertisements; however, our specialists have noticed that they might perform other suspicious activities too. Research has shown that Temperature Scout might record information about the websites you surf. In addition, it might collect your cookies and even some details that are considered “private information.” Temperature Scout is not the only program that acts like that. Researchers have found that StormWatch, Desktop Weather Alerts, SevereWeatherAlerts, and StormWarnings act in a similar manner. Therefore, you should not allow them to enter your system. Do not forget that they can slither onto your PC without your direct permission too, so it would be best if you take care of your system’s safety in advance.
