Normally, when we deal with potentially unwanted programs (PUP), users can choose whether they want them installed or not. However, that is not the case with Flowsprit. Our research shows that this PUP uses silent installation, and so it gets added to a target computer without user’s knowledge. This proves that the program is highly suspicious and it should not be allowed to remain on your computer. Please follow the instructions below to remove Flowsprit from the system once and for all. You should also consider investing in a licensed antispyware tool that would safeguard your computer from other unwanted applications in the future.
Seeing how this application is entirely in Chinese, we can make an assumption that it is intended for the Mandarin-speaking market. However, that does not mean that users in other countries cannot get infected with this annoying tool. Our research suggests that Flowsprit is heavily bundled, and so it means that the application could easily enter your system via a freeware download. On top of that, it could bring several other applications together with it, and then your system would be full of annoying apps that can slow down your computer performance and expose you potentially corrupted content.
This program is designed to monitor your download and upload traffic. Now it would seem that users can install this application willingly to see just how much data they download or upload. However, when a third party makes use of this application, it means that the information collected about your traffic could be used for online marketing schemes without your permission. What’s more, the Flowsprit installed on your computer could be used for FTP communication with a third-party server, so you could also experience a slower Internet connection because of this program.
As far as we know, the application communicates with the following servers: install.yulezm.com and service.99ruyi.net. It is possible that this application could transfer your personal information to the aforementioned servers, and you could eventually encounter a lot of commercial content. What’s more, it is not clear whether the content promoted by this application and all the other bundled apps that come with it is safe. Not to mention that we have already established that the program slithers into your system without your permission. So whatever Flowsprit does on your computer should not be tolerated at all.
It might be slightly complicated to remove Flowsprit from your computer. It is true that you can delete the application via Control panel, but the program also leaves quite a few leftovers. Therefore, we will provide you with full removal instructions that will help you terminate every single file associated with this program. Once you are done with that, please be sure to scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner. As mentioned, Flowsprit is heavily bundled, so you will have a lot of other unwanted apps on-board. Apps that you definitely have to remove at once.
