    Hey I got the same exact fake virus alert once before on my tablet. DO NOT DO WHAT THEY ARE TELLING YOU it is a trick that leads you to the real malware. Like others have said, you should clear browsing history and all data for your browser, then hopefully it won't happen again anytime soon. Good luck!

    Everytime I use Chrome or the basic Internet on my brand new Galaxy S7 I get a pop up from different websites ....
    I was getting this too on Drudge's web site and other right wing conservative sites when using Chrome on my Note 5.

    Someoneone on Zerohedge in the comments section was complaining about the same problem on that site, and others recommended Brave browser. I tried it myself after getting three of those popups in a row (which required me to reset my application data and lose all history) and I've been using it for over a month now with not a single pop up. I don't see any ads at all and the sites load quicker now and I use less mobile data. The only thing I lost was the ability to see my mobile's history on my desktop PC. Otherwise, it's all good.

    Advertizers will lose revenue when they **** off users of web sites with these threatening scare tactics. Just switch to Brave and forget about ads and scareware.

    Isn't Google supposedly fixing these redirects with a new version of Chrome? I get the same annoying fake message on this site too. It's very annoying.
