Also, it's not a virus. Yeah, folk today want to include ransomware into what a virus is but I'll resist that since a virus does something else.
Thanks for sharing. Folk are only now learning that just because it's a phone doesn't mean you can ignore backup of what we can't lose.
Has anyone heard about a virus that is being attached to an app on the play store, that once you download it allows the originator to take control of your cell phone? My co-worker states this happened this past week to her Verizon Wireless phone and requested payment of $300.00 to release her phone. She ended up going to VZ Wireless and getting a new phone. She lost all her pictures, she didn't know to back it up.
