At the moment, users can encounter Flow while looking for extensions on the Chrome Web Store page. However, we are not sure if many would like to install a tool that does not have lots of good reviews. Of course, there might be other ways to encounter the potentially unwanted program. For instance, it could be promoted on pop-ups and ads containing links leading to the application’s homepage called mysearchflow.com. Also, the extension might be bundled with similar applications that could be spread through file-sharing websites. Thus, if you have no wish to keep potentially unwanted programs or similar software on your system, you should stay away from tools advertised on doubtful websites, pop-ups, and ads. Plus, it is essential to research tools even if you find them on legit websites like the Chrome Web Store page. If you want your system to be protected against malicious applications too, we recommend getting a reliable antimalware tool.
This potentially unwanted program does not change any browser preferences. It means it should not change your default search engine, homepage, or new tab page. However, it might alter the search results that your search engine displays. To be more precise, Flow could increase the number of search results you are seeing. However, users should know that the extra results might be sponsored and relevant, suggesting that the potentially unwanted program could be placing targeted advertising among search results. It is quite possible given that the extension might gather personal and anonymous information and share such data with third parties. You should also know that ads from unknown third parties might not be reliable, and so we advise being cautious when seeing such content. Naturally, if the possibility of seeing more ads among your search results does not tempt you, maybe you should not install this application. If you already have installed it but now think it was a bad idea, keep in mind that you can erase Flow at any time.
If you prefer erasing unwanted applications manually, you should access your extensions menu from which you should be able to remove Flow. If you have no idea how to access Google Chrome’s extensions menu, you could use the instructions located at the end of this article. They show how to delete the potentially unwanted program step by step. The other way to eliminate Flow is to perform a full system scan and click the deletion button that should appear as soon as the scanning is over.
