Flowspirit is a tool that promises to help improve the traffic rate of users’ websites considerably. It comes in two versions: Chinese (available at spiritsoft.cn) and English (available at ipts.com) – both of them act the same.

What does Flowspirit do?

Flowspirit has been developed having those users who own websites in mind. It generates unique clicks and thus improves the rank of a website. Because of this, the owner of a website can earn higher advertising revenue. Researchers have found that Flowspirit is usually used by news portals, online stores, adult websites, wellbeing websites, and personal pages. They have these domains: .com, .lt, .org, .info, .eu, .mx, .net, .space, etc. Without a doubt, this program acts beneficially if it has been chosen to generate the traffic to a bunch of different pages. Unfortunately, users who install it on their PCs usually do not know that this program connects to other websites, e.g. 123kjz.com, 17k.com, 3uol.com, and 4399sy.com, belonging to Flowspirit users in the background. This might result in the Internet connection speed decrease. On top of that, cookies from adult and other dubious third-party pages might be placed on users’ computers. Needless to say, they will not be informed about that. It is one of those reasons why it has been classified as a potentially unwanted program. Unfortunately, it is not the only one.

Specialists have also found it disturbing that Flowspirit creates a service so that it could start automatically when the computer is turned on. Users are not allowed to disable this feature, which means that Flowspirit will continue working on the system after the system restart even if a user closes it. The same can be said about the deletion of this program – it cannot be erased like an ordinary application through Control Panel, which means that users who decide to stop using it will have to put much effort into its removal process. Decent programs do not act like this, we can assure you, so we suggest that you think twice before letting this program stay installed.

Where does Flowspirit come from?

Both English and Chinese versions of Flowspirit have official websites, and users can get them from these pages easily. At present, the majority of people who have this program installed on their PCs have downloaded this program willingly from its official website; however, according to our experienced specialists, it might start traveling in software bundles too. Users usually get software bundles containing suspicious software from file-sharing and similar websites, so it is very likely that you have recently downloaded software from an untrustworthy page too if you have no idea why Flowspirit is installed on your PC. It is not always easy to prevent undesirable software from entering the system, so our security specialists recommend having a security application installed and enabled 24/7/365. It is your only chance to stay safe.
