AuroraFit may try to pass itself as a useful application to Mac users but, unfortunately, the application has no meaningful features. That is, of course, if you do not count its primary purpose of delivering unwanted advertisements to the users. Due to this behavior, AuroraFit has been classified as adware.

While present on the Mac, AuroraFit may continuously generate new intrusive advertisements causing a significant impact on the users' experience on their machines or devices. More importantly, users should keep in mind that advertisements delivered by adware or other dubious sources are rarely promoting legitimate products, services or websites. Instead, in the vast majority of cases, the advertisements are for unsafe destinations that may include phishing portals, shady online betting/dating sites, platforms spreading PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and more.

The problem with adware, browser hijackers, and other PUPs, is that these applications also could carry additional functionalities. For example, PUPs are notorious for often having data-tracking capabilities. While installed on the device, the application may collect the user's browsing history, search history, numerous device details, and, sometimes, even try to extract sensitive information from browsers' autofill data. Users typically rely on this browser feature to keep their account details, banking information, payment data, etc.
