    So i was in the app, and it had ads on the sides...i never click them but i accidentally clicked one today..and it said "you have 4 viruses" and i knew that it wasnt true so i didnt click anything i just exited the browser the app took me too...Keep in mind i didnt click anything on their website, but im still paranoid, should i be? (it also said click " ok to delete the viruses" but i didnt click anything. Just in case i deleted all my website cookies and ran a security scan twice, nothing. I think its kinda stupid to be paranoid but still?
    what do you guys think?

    There are no viruses. They are trying to get you to download a crappy security app or the ol' tech support scam. You do not need to worry.

    That has happened to me also. I've cleared the Storage cache and a Cache Partition clean in the past. So far as I know, don't have any viruses.

    No you are fine. These ads make you think so and force you to download some kind of spyware app and want to steal your personal information. Just stay away from such messages.
