Issue: How to Uninstall AccuWeather?

How can I remove AccuWeather from my phone? I am an Android user; however, I lost the trust of the app because of the recent privacy-related issues.

Solved Answer

AccuWeather is one of the most popular weather applications. It is compatible with iOS[1], Android, and Windows operating system. The app provides local weather forecast for the day and whole week. Thus, it’s a handy tool when you need to check whether you need to take an umbrella or not.

Having minute-by-minute weather forecast is handy. However, some phone users noticed that the app uses lots of battery resources. Thus, they decide to get rid of it in order to have a longer battery life. Some users also question the app’s accuracy and claim that it frequently fails to provide a real forecast.

However, the biggest problems with the AccuWeather occurred when the app was spotted sharing users’ data with a mobile advertising platform. Users were not informed about this activity. Besides, the company promised to end this shady activity but did not keep their word.

Nevertheless, this privacy-related issue occurred only in the iPhone version of the app; other users are concerned about their privacy as well. However, any suspicious data tracking and selling activities were not noticed in the Android version of the app or Windows Desktop app[2]. Thus, users should not worry about their privacy.
