What is Laflurla?
Laflurla is an adware application that gets installed onto your computer together with various freeware applications. It is important to point that downloading legitimate programs from third party websites via unfamiliar installers may result in a list of unwanted applications being installed on your computer as well.

Where does Laflurla come from?
Just like a number of other adware programs Laflurla also has an official home page at laflurla.com. However, this website does not distribute the application, because the download link does not work there. Consequently, we can say that Laflurla is most often distributed bundled with other applications on third party file hosting pages.
For example, it may even come with SpyHunter installer that is downloaded from tucows.com. It shows that if you want to download a program you should better do it from its official or affiliated website, because installers available at third party websites are most probably full of additional software you neither need nor want.
What does Laflurla do?
This adware application affects Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. It adds an entry in the list of installed programs in Control Panel, and then automatically an extension is installed on your browser as well. While you browse the Internet Laflurla collects information on what websites you access and what you search online for. When this information is processed, Laflurla displays various coupon deals and discount offers that are supposed to help you save money on your online shopping.
However, clicking on a coupon displayed by Laflurla leads users to contenko.com which is yet another adware-related website. It may display information related to the good you wanted to purchase, but it is very likely that you have been redirected to this website for marketing purposes as well. After all, Laflurla and similar adware applications are used to increase website traffic and generate financial profit to the people behind it.
