    How to close a malware tab in chrome?

    A webpage got redirected to a "virus alert" malware page and I can't close it.

    Deleted the cache, both the general tablet cache as well as the chrome cache, deleted the "unimportant data", did "force stop", restarted the tablet, but chrome still automatically opens that tab where I left off.

    Google should make an option to close all tabs on exit or otherwise.

    Install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Install a good anti-virus app (I use Avast Mobile Security & Antivirus but it's your choice). Let them run overnight. That should fix the problem. (Allow them to delete, move or whatever they want to any malware found.)

    It isn't that easy, but it's not - but can - be malware trying to force a drive by download and install w/o user interaction.

    From XDA browser redirects hijacking:

    "Chrome’s pop-up blocker will prevent sites with these types of abusive experiences from opening new windows or tabs."

    https://www.xda-developers.com/chrom...age-redirects/

    Chrome build 64 (Beta) on the Google Play Store has those changes now.
    Chrome should receive this update very soon.
