    Hi, just had a prompt from a hijacked website alerting me to "FOUR virus" (which is hard to believe considering I am very careful, and only recently bought the phone) and prompts me to download a free app from the "play store".

    I have tried to link an image in the comments.

    So my question is, have I been infected? I did not download anything, but is it possible that the website could have secretly downloaded something? I do not have external download sources enabled either. Avast says I'm clean too. Just want to be sure that's all.

    I've heard all about these pop-up viruses, but just want to make sure. Like I say, I did not install anything from the play store, did not download any .apk files. I presume I'm fine, just want to make sure.

    Many thanks.

    Your phone is probably okay.
