    Welcome to Android Central! I doubt you actually have a virus -- instead, you're getting a browser popup associated with some website that's trying to scare you into installing some bogus "security" app which is probably itself malware. Open Chrome, tap Menu>Settings>Privacy>Clear Browsing Data, and clear everything "From the Beginning of Time." Do the same on Chrome on your computer. Also, on the phone, go to Settings>Apps, select Chrome, then Storage, then Clear Cache/Clear Data. Now see if the problem persists.
