Another day, another scam opportunity.
I open Safari on my phone ready to search for a lab coat. (That’s another story.) But instead of a list of shopping sites, I’m greeted by a warning: Your Apple iPhone is severely damaged by (6) viruses.
The pop up appears to come from the App Store with its official icon shown in the upper left hand corner of the message, and it instructs the user to click the Remove Virus button at the bottom of the screen.
While not impossible, it’s unlikely that an iPhone will be infected by a virus, much less six of them…especially if your apps were downloaded from the Apple App Store.
Don’t get scammed. To protect your phone, don’t jailbreak it and DON’T CLICK THE REMOVE VIRUS BUTTON.
If you have a pop up that just won’t go away, try this.
