    My phone is telling me to follow the instructions to remove the virus. If I don't remove the virus it will cause serious damage to my phone. Tells me to tap the button and install update from Google play for free. Step two tells me to open the app and repair my phone. Is my phone really infected by a virus?

    Welcome to Android Central! Do not install the app. That's a scare ad designed to lure you into installing some app that may or may not be malicious. Popups like these are usually associated with a website, so avoid that website in the future.
