Flow is a browser hijacker. Flow displays advertisements on the Google Search results with “Ads by Flow”. Flow is distributed on the internet using winspeedtest2.com and maybe even more websites.

Flow is usually recommended on the internet as a helpful tool to enrich Google search results. However, in reality, Flow is a browser hijacker that collects all kinds of browsing data from your browser settings.
