    Good Evening,

    I would really appreciate anyone who can help me out in this topic.

    I am a soccer fan and I always watch soccer matches online because it cost $50 a month to subscribe the tv channel. Wherelse online streaming is free.

    Recently, the pop up virus stating that I have a virus came up, something which has never happen before. I just closed it and carry on watching the euro 2016 matches. But surprisingly it pop up a few times. Each time I just closed it.

    Right now im having a sense of paranoia that somehow a virus had gotten into my android and it Has sent spam emails or messages to people? Or personal information about my web searches and other private details.

    This was all made worse recently because someone I knew for a long time told me that I should be careful with my phone otherwise people can see activities. Is it possible a virus can show other people my phone activities?

    Paranoia can be a really scary thing. Im worried maybe the virus would have sent wrong things about me to them and they just choose not to tell it to me as they just choose to keep it quiet.

    Any kind people out there who is tech savvy, plz kindly help me out. Im not tech savvy. Your good deed wont go unnoticed.

    Welcome to the forums. What channels are you using to watch the games? Most free streaming sites are illegal and can fill your browser with adware. In some cases and depending where you click there's a chance that you could end up installing some kind of malware.

    Hi Javier

    I just search on google and click on whichever works..
    Are my other concerns possible?
    I always close those popups.
    I have never clicked on them and get redirected to another page.

    Welcome to AC! Press "Thanks!" if I helped you!
    Android cannot get malware unless you install an app,giving the app all of the permissions it needs. Even then,Google security sistem will warn you about it.
    For example when you download a 1tap root aplication it will say it's a malware.
