    A few months ago I was on Redtube and I accidentally clicked on a ad, which my boyfriend warned me about, and I pressed the back key. Then all of a sudden my phone vibrates a few times while a pop up is telling me that my phone has 15 viruses and don't exit out of the page and hackers my be taking my phone info,sd card,cc info, and other things. I'm scared and feel like a ***** for trying to "spice things up". My boyfriend isn't mad but I'm scared because I use my phone for a lot of things.
    Thank you!

    Hello,
    It's most likely pop-ups... No biggie... Delete your browser cache and you should be good.
    ( the pop-ups are meant to freak you out and make you think you have viruses)

    Yes, I agree -- it's just a browser popup associated with that site. It shouldn't continue to pop up unless you're on that site (or other sites that have this kind of annoying junk).

    Also, it may benefit you to install an adblocker and/or spyware blocker like Malwarebytes
    Lastly, Using an alternate browser like Opera or Opera mini which contain ad & pop-up blockers will reduce the amount of pop-ups and junk viewable your current browser.
