    Hello fellow androids. I experience intervention from a site under sjeuhangfu.pw, claiming that my mobile is 28,1% infected from 4 different viruses and that my mobile will soon be severely damaged if I don't install antivirus. Then I need to click OK to remove the splash screen, whereafter google play Open's at Go Antivirus.
    Could anyone advice if this is a fake or real statement/threat.
    I already have the Iobit antivirus along with the cleaning application installed, so I don't understand why my mobile should be at threat..?
    Thanks for your help guys..😉

    Welcome to the forums. That sounds like a scam, trying to convince you to download any shady app. Avoid clicking on any place inside the pop up and exit using your phone return key.

    I just went to the side with a desktop - with the browser claiming to be from a phone. Same problem - my "phone" is infected. (The fact that even the OS is running in a sandbox means that it's not infected, even 1%.)

    Spew a few million "warnings" like that and you'll make some money. It's unethical, it's illegal, but what the heck, as long as you make money, right?

    ^ I'm reminded of something I heard once, that people are either makers, fakers or takers.
