HELP! Weird Popup message on my phone when I woke up

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys....I woke up and found a popup on my android phone. It was a white/green screen saying FBI Illegal Porn etc. and it had a numbered checklist of how to remove the popup. Another smaller popup actually popped up in front of that screen saying ANDROCLEAN.....it was giving directions on how to remove the popup.

 

I just cleaned my device like I do everyday and it is gone....but I was wondering what this was? I use a VPN and I barely even use my phone to browse the web. Can someone explain? Call me dumb...but I have OCD/High Anxiety and am easily freaked out. So...common sense is out the door on my end. I hope u guys can help. Thanks

most likely one of your apps is the culprit. it's a shame how android apps are full of crap. have you looked into adguard for android. search it in the app store.

I really appreciate the response. It's disgusting how these apps try and use fear to get people to download their stuff. I will look into ad block. Thank You again...I'm glad there are so many people on here like you willing to help others. Have a great day.

Hey it's ok I have the very same problem, it was diagnosed by my doctor as sleep porning, it's very similar to sleep walking and sleep talking, all you are doing is surfing porn websites when you're asleep and when when you wake up you have absolutely no recollection of what you have been doing, my doctor says thee is no cure as of yet, so for now I guess I'm in the 0.1% category of sleep porners :(

 

PS: I tried to explain my situation to my wife as she found a similar pop up on my iPhone but she was having none of it, in fact she just called me a dirty old pervert as she left for work yesterday.
