    I got a pop up says my Samsung galaxy s7 edge infected with virus 28.1%. Asking to install a Avira 2016 antivirus. I did not browse any malicious sites and it's new one.

    Who is this us.nn8atgic.pw?

    Do not download anything. You have no virus but may end up with one if you click on anything from the pop up

    Can't find my other post but I've got the S6. I'm trying to browse atm to find Christmas presents and it's just coming up randomly. How do I get it to stop?

    Clear your browser cache and it should be gone

    Welcome to the forums. I agree with Pugs. If the cache clear doesn't work, do a data clear for the app. Follow the steps he outlined, but select clear data as opposed to cache.

    It also depends on which sites you're visiting. The sites themselves don't have to be malicious or shady (like porn or gambling). I've seen annoying bogus browser popups like that on clickbait sites (i.e., Buzzfeed-like sites with headlines like, "This chicken crossed the road, CLICK TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!").
