About this infection in short

FlowSurf virus is classified as a reroute virus that can install without your consent. Very seldom do users install the browser hijacker voluntarily and most of the time, they do not even know how it happened. Redirect viruses are added to freeware, and this is called bundling. No direct harm will be done your device by the browser hijacker as it is not considered to be malware. You will, however, be continually rerouted to promoted web pages, as that is the main reason behind their existence. Those web pages won’t always secure so if you were to enter a unsecure site, you might end up with a much more severe infection on your OS. It’s not suggested to keep it as it is somewhat impractical to you. You should eliminate FlowSurf virus if you want to protect your machine. FlowSurf_virus.png
