    Perform a soft reset on the Passport:
    • Press and Hold the power button for more than 10 seconds, the phone will reboot.

    The moment the Passport is back at the home screen, begin deleting your recent Android apps:
    • Long press the app icon until the icon start pulsing, tap the little trash can in the app icon corner.


    Once you have removed your recent or all of your Android apps, then it should be clean, but I suggest you get a good anit-virus scanner from BlackBerry World.

    Don't install "hacked" apps from file sharing, questionable website, or from porn or adult websites.

    What Kye said ^ .Sounds like "ransom ware",
    You can try to delete/uninstall all of your Andyroid Apps, and do hard reset to see if that goes away, if not, then you may have to do a wipe/install of the OS to see if that takes care of it.

    I only have 3 Andyroid apps on my Z30, and I got them from the Amazon Apps Store. If you are installing "raw" .apk files from the web, you are exposed to that type of malware....

    Lulz. I'm aware that Androids are vulnerable to this type of attack. And I love the fact that they are sandboxed, meaning that it will only affect android apps and not be able to touch the rest of the phone.

    Delete android apps and laugh. Maybe run one of those anti virus android apps that people shill on Blackberry world as being effective.

    And Blackberry is really going to produce Android devices? Poor fools.

    I enjoy the system we have now.

    It's not BlackBerry that are the fools, it's the !diot users that they're trying to cater to that can't get it through their thick app brainwashed skulls, just how bad an operating system Google's Android really is!

    Android is a great operating system. It's only weakness is trying to be too good. Allowing hooks everywhere into its system.

    It would be perfectly functional if people wouldn't abuse it.

    And of course it has other issues. All OSs do.

    All my android apps are affected!! And just because its my 1 post dosnt mean im a troll!!! I was always able to fix all my issues so there was never a reason to go on here to ask question! I been with blackberry since day one!

    Back to my issue. My apps always worked. But this one time I tried to download a app that was in my download folder and as soon as tried to open the app. It messed up all my apps. Only blackberry apps work. Not even the amazon apps work!

    Looks to me that your only choice is to wipe the device and reload your OS. And wherever you got the recent app from your download folder I would stay away

    Reload the android portion of your OS again and see if that fixes it, cant promise but much easier then reloading everything.
    What was your most recent installed application and where did you get the file from?

    I don't think the FBI is in the business circumventing the Legal Justice System to collect $ from people. If they had evidence to support criminal cyber activity, they would simply storm your house with warrant in hand, arrest you and seize all your computers and mobile devices. They're certainly not going to warn you that they're on to you.

    $500...that must have been some goood porno.

    OP, you still haven't said where you downloaded the "app that was in your download folder" from. And Carl Estes nailed it: you probably installed some kind of an app that's basically malware/ransomware.

    The OP has been asked several times where he got the app from and never answered. That makes me go hhmmmm! Sounds kind of suspect to me! Only use TRUSTED sites for downloads!

    Yep both aptoide and 1mobile offer pirated paid apps so if you can't make money on selling you make money on malware.

    I guess, now that it's clear it is an Android ransomware,... it's time to start trying to get rid of it. Hopefully it can be done without wiping your device.

    Looks like it's just a popup over the entire Android OS. Luckily for BB10 users, the 'entire' Android OS is just one component, so that's why it seems like it is 'blocking apps'.

    Try downloading the Amazon App Store apk from here:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.ht...UvbUpU11759926
    And install it over the infected one.

    if you are not involved in any illegal activity, I suggest calling up the FBI and reporting said app. There's no better way to get back at someone like that than the feds showing up to their door.
