    I got a pop up while on Facebook about an urgent update saying if I didn't update it would hurt the device and be slow which is what it's done ever since the last update. Is it legitimate or some kind of virus? Thanks!

    It is probably a pop up ad from an app you have installed. You could always download a free virus scan like Kaspersky and scan your device just in case.

    I'm having this issue also. It's happening more and more but only while looking at stories through the Facebook AP. Does anyone know more about what is causing it?

    I got this pop up tonight when I clicked on an article on fb. It opened a window asking me to download an update. I didn't. When I went back to the window a few minutes later it said page not found. Seems sketchy to me.

    I'd be inclined to use a stronger word.
    These pop-ups are certainly a nuisance, and worth reporting to Google, I'd say.

    Sounds like it might be pop ups that the FB web browser is allowing. In your FB app, go to the settings and select to always open links with an external browser. You'll then be able to open the links using Chrome or whatever browser you prefer.
