.....it is typically referred to as adware and is not likely anything to worry about. Some applications simply install it automatically. Just ignore it and don't waste your time trying to download anti-virus/malware apps which do use up system resources while running in the background. This is nothing new and most Android users will have this minor annoyance from time to time.
Is it possible to get malware on your iPhone? I have a 4S, and I recieved this pop-up yesterday saying I had "won" something. It said mobitracking.net (or.com) on it and then said to click to "accept".
Obviously I did NOT click on it, and since there was no other way to get rid of the pop up other than clicking accept, I had to do a cold boot on my phone. I've since gotten the pop-up two more times, each time having to do a cold boot.
I'm not sure what the deal is, but I send and recieve emails, etc. Haven't changed anything recently.
I'm wondering if there is a malware or anti-virus app for the iPhones? I've looked in the app store, but it's pretty limited, and as far as the reviews go not worth the money. If anyone knows of a good app to remove the malware, or if you know of a way to get rid of the malware (preferably without doing a full restore which would take an entire day) I would really love to hear from you.
Thanks in advance!
