    A typical scareware pop-up, the usual lies and filth. I swiped it away.
    Never tap 'OK'.

    I am from the post I made earlier! (http://forums.androidcentral.com/ask...=1#post5200725)

    This was the exact message I got, except for the fact that mine said 5X.

    ^ Welcome as a new member.

    Shortly after, I opened the page again, and it had changed to an old favourite, the 'free iPhone' scam.

    Haha! I'm afraid I have two.

    Let's see, shall we test the iPhone 7, and get a free 6s?

    What's not to believe about that?😂

    The messages themselves are the virus. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and a good antivirus app (one at a time) to see if you can get rid of it. If not, the nly fixes are a complete reflash of the ROM or a restore of a backup you made before you got the virus (you DO make periodic backups, right?)

    Yes, I have no problems dealing them myself, but we often receive appeals for help in the forums from people who have become ensnared. I'm collecting a sort of rogues' gallery of screenshots of these pop-ups.
