    Default pop-up antivirus ad

    I am getting a pop-up notice that I have 3 virus' on my android. Do I really need an antivirus program on my phone?

    These are not the notices that occur as advertising on various websites, are they? This is your phone telling you this?

    I believe it's my phone, this morning was the first time it happened. I was on a dictionary app I installed a long time ago

    I'm not aware that it's necessary or even desirable to install anti-virus apps because a deal of security is built into the Operating System....AFAIK. So I would say don't do that...instead, uninstall the dictionary app if you think that's responsible and see if that fixes it. If not, report back.
