Do you know what StormWarnings is?
If you are worried about missing out on important weather alerts, StormWarnings might seem like a beneficial asset to your operating system. Nonetheless, our research team identifies this “asset” as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that deserves removal. Even though this program cannot install malicious programs without your permission, steal banking information, or hijack your virtual accounts, it can be dangerous to trust it. According to the research we have conducted, StormWarnings can show ads, and this is the main reason to delete it from your Windows operating system. If you lack experience that could help you remove StormWarnings from your operating system, we suggest reading this report.
Are you familiar with SevereWeatherAlerts or StormWatch? Both of these programs work in the same way that StormWarnings does. All of these potentially unwanted programs were developed using the same framework, which is why it is not surprising that they are identical. You can remove all of these programs using the same method as well. The question is why should you remove these programs? We have found that these PUPs can showcase advertisements. Unfortunately, it is difficult to say if these ads are reliable and harmless. In fact, most users will realize this only after they interact with these ads, and it might be too late. For example, if StormWarnings injects an ad showcasing a malware installer, one click on this ad could be enough to execute the installer. Needless to say, this can be very dangerous, which is why you should have no further hesitations about the removal of StormWarnings.StormWarnings screenshot

Have you found other infections installed along with StormWarnings? This potentially unwanted program is officially promoted at mystormwarnings.com, but it appears that it could also be installed along with other programs. It is naive to think that all installers carrying StormWarnings will be harmless. If you trust all installers, Trojans, ransomware infections, fictitious malware removal programs, bogus system optimizers, and other kinds of malicious infections could take over your operating system without your noticing. Of course, we do not put the blame for infecting your PC on the creator of the PUP. Despite this, we still recommend removing StormWarnings from your operating system.
