    I have received this message a few times recently. I believe it says I have viruses from adult sites. I don't use adult sites. How do I determine if this is legit & how to stop these messages?

    No, it's the usual lies, filth and rubbish. See this: https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh...d.php?t=630081

    Also, be sure to report the site to Google; and to add it as a named blocked site on your broadband shield or firewall or whatever you have.

    Definitely adware. Still want to do something though.

    Use ad blockers in Samsung Internet
    Install MalwareBytes
    Clean browser history, cache, data

    Use a 2nd browser with Javascript turned off for research.

    The S8%2B gives it away, since Google would never let that happen. %2B indicates the hex code for +. Google would just have S8+. (It's sloppy programming, indicative of a script kiddie.)
