Fake Google virus alert

Hello there,
This message just popped up with an alarm tone - “Your system is heavily damaged by Four virus!”.
I rebooted but it is still there. I know not to clink on the link but wondered what I need to do to get rid of it.
Any ideas?
Many thanks

Please provide a screenshot! :slight_smile:


Sorry - how would I do that?

Press VOL- + POWER

Here it is…

Well, that’s just a website in your browser! It’s not your Android-system. I hope you didn’t do the steps in this text? :wink:

When does it appear? Only when browsing certain sites or automatically on boot? What does happen if you press OK? Which Browser do you use?

It seems that your browser was hijacked.
I found this: http://mobilesecurityzone.com/four-virus-android-removal/


The server tells itself … :wink:

No - I didn’t follow the steps. So, after I reboot, then go onto my browser (Firefox) and immediately it happens again.
If I press ‘OK’, the attached comes up. I didn’t allow…

Thanks Irina,
The article had the fix and now looks fine.
Best wishes


Thanks for engaging.
