    Yesterday I started receiving a popup saying that my phone is infected with 4 viruses bc of visiting adult sites. I'm not sure what kind of adult sites it's talking about! I've not been a visitor af any of 'those' adult sites. If that's what it means 🤣 Nevertheless it says from Google. I'm not so sure. At the same time, I don't want my phone infected. Tia for your help please.

    Welcome to Android Central, @ReneaT!

    Very frustrating, isn't it? Do you see this while you're using the browser, or does it pop up in other places (like when you're using other apps, or at the phone's homescreen)?

    Which phone are you using?

    Thank you. It is frustrating. It happens when I'm using my browser.

    Ah, then it sounds like something you can safely ignore. They're trying to scare you into thinking that your phone is infected. I'm guessing it also tells you to install and run an app (or click on a button so they can disinfect your system).

    To be safe, however, you could run Malwarebytes and see if it finds anything suspicious: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...es.antimalware

    That's exactly what they wanted me to do. To install Turbo something. I will do what you said now. That makes me feel so much better. Thank you so very for help and quick reply. Have a wonderful day
