Even though FlowSurf is presented as a reliable and beneficial application, it actually is an advertisement supported program which can track your browsing history and replace regular online adverts with links to the sites of third party affiliates. Nowadays most search engines present sponsored links; however, they are separated from the “real” search results, and computer users know exactly what they might be clicking on. Unfortunately, in the case of FlowSurf, computer users may be tricked into clicking on random ads and visiting suspicious websites. This is because the advertisements are presented as authentic search results, and only observant users might notice slight font and color changes. If you have accidentally clicked on a camouflaged advert, we recommend that you act carefully. Make sure you do not share private information, download malware or spend your money on bogus products and services.
If you want to remove FlowSurf, delete other potentially existing threats and ensure that the operating system is not manipulated by unreliable software in the future, we advise installing automatic malware removal software. If you are confident with the manual removal experience you have, you can try to delete FlowSurf and other undesirable software manually. In this case, you should begin the removal process by completing the guides below.

In non-techie terms:
It is recommended that computer users remove FlowSurf because this plugin is quite suspicious and it appears that it has been created to present online advertisements. As you may have discovered this yourself, you may click on random ads accidentally thinking that you are clicking on regular search result links. Malware researchers warn that trusting the offers and advertisements presented in this way is not safe, and if you want to avoid virtual security risks, you certainly should delete the suspicious application.
