    AccuWeather is dedicated to providing the best weather forecasts available with Superior Accuracy in a way that is seamless and secure.

    We are pleased to launch this update to address issues surrounding the Reveal Mobile SDK, which has now been removed.

    AccuWeather's app employed a Software Development Kit (SDK) from a third party vendor (Reveal Mobile) that inadvertently allowed Wi-Fi router data to be transmitted to this third-party vendor. Once we became aware of this situation we took immediate action to verify the operation and quickly disabled the SDK from the IOS app. Our next step was to update the IOS app and remove Reveal Mobile completely. At no time was this data accessed or used by AccuWeather and we have received assurances from the vendor that the same is true for them. AccuWeather takes our customers' privacy seriously and is committed to maintaining the highest level of compliance and protection.

    AccuWeather continues to update its practices, communications and ULAs to be transparent and current with evolving standards. AccuWeather also continues to enhance methods for handling data and strives to provide superior, seamless, and secure user experiences. We are grateful to have a supportive community that highlights areas where we can optimize and increase transparency.

    • AccuWeather Founder and President Dr. Joel Myers Denounces "Inaccurate Information" About Hurricane Florence

      9/19/2018 3:15:00 PM

      "Seeing others comment that Florence will rank among the costliest U.S. hurricanes of all time is flat-out wrong. While it was, in fact, a catastrophic storm for parts of the Carolinas as we predicted it would be, it is important to put Florence's cost and impact into historical context," said Dr. Joel N. Myers, Founder, President, and Chairman of AccuWeather. "As an expert on severe weather and its economic, financial and human costs, and adjusting for inflation, I would not put Florence in a list of the top 10 nor even the top 25 costliest hurricanes to ever hit the U.S."

    • Statement RE: Today's Miscoded Hurricane Test Warning

      8/10/2018 1:48:58 PM

      This afternoon at 12:37 p.m. EDT AccuWeather passed on a hurricane warning for the southeastern U.S. that was intended to be an internal government test, but the government’s computer coding did not so indicate it was a test and it was inadvertently distributed externally by AccuWeather’s computer system when AccuWeather received the warning. The internal test was redistributed not only by AccuWeather on its AccuWeather app and AccuWeather.com website, but by other weather providers that also pass on government warnings. There is no hurricane warning in effect for the southeastern U.S.
