    Greeting, everybody. So, I noticed about 2 days ago that I had a new app called Pornclub on my phone. There were weird pops up too. so I did a factory reset and when it came back on I saw that an app called Pornclub was still exist. But worse, there are mp3 downloader, com.android.system.......... which I scan with my antivirus, and it said: the program is fake.
    Now there is pops up every five minutes.
    I'm really sick of those things slowing down my phone.
    If someone has a solution, I would love to hear it. I have a I-mobile and I am not rooted.
    Thank you

    This malware has installed itself in the system which is why a factory reset didnt remove it. You will need to flash it with the appropriate firmware

    Firmware is the phone's operating system (bit like windows on a PC). You will need to find the firmware for your exact phone model and flash (install) it. This is a Thai device and it seems there is support on many forums which I can't understand (language problem)

    Just uninstall your Antivirus and any cleaning and doctor apps. You may need to go to Settings - Security - Device Administrators to get rid of some of these horrid apps.
    If you must have Antivirus - and you don't need them for normal use imv if you get Google updated security patches, then Lookout or Malwarebytes are safe harnless ones.

    Your problems probably stem from rogue apps that you may have thought were "helping '. They really should be removed from the Play Store.
