Welcome to Android Central!

Did you actually visit the malicious website, or did you get a pop-up saying you did? How old is your device? It could very well be that your phone, if it is an older device, is experiencing lag/battery issues. Have those things happened prior to you visiting the website in question?

Welcome to Android Central! That's just a browser popup ad designed to look like an official notification, to scare you into installing some "antivirus" app that is itself malicious. Ignore those popups and avoid those websites.

You didn't tap any link in those popups, did you?
