    I was on Chrome on FB this AM an suddenly a screen came up saying I had 3 viruses. It directed me to an app. I closed everything and restarted the phone.
    When I reopened Chrome I got the warning again. It said if I don't install the app my phone will be locked in one day!!
    It came from wwe.lmorpon.info or something like that.
    Is this a virus or malware? How do I get rid of it? Never had this on any phone before.
    Do I now need an anti-virus?

    It sounds like a scam to me. On top of that, they spelt 'Imoron' incorrectly.

    Which phone is this?
    AVAST makes a mobile version for A/V (Android)
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...security&hl=en
    (free, but with ads and in-app purchase)
    Install, clean and then uninstall if you want.

    Just close out of all your tabs and clear history/settings. You could always go to the app in the settings menu and clear it's cache.

    Settings > Apps > Chrome > Storage > Clear Cache

    You may need to reconfigure your account and settings.

    You're likely looking at ransomware site.

    I know there was a case on other android phones that required you to delete a chrome folder manually, but before you go down that road, try the easy solutions.

    assuming you didnt download and install anything, if you did that's a different story.
    once you clear the cache and data, block pop ups

    1. Open Chrome Browser app
    2. Go to menu
    3. Open Setting
    4. Open Site Setting
    5. Switch pop-ups setting to BLOCKED

    Thanks guys!!! This is why I love CrackBerry!! Did all of the above and it appears to be fixed. I already had pop ups blocked.
    I learn something new every day!!
    I did not install an antivirus. It seemed more like malware. This was on my Dtek50. All my years on BB5 and 10 it never happened before.

    Does anyone use Firefox instead of Chrome? I have always used it on my PC.

    I did for awhile... as FireFox use to be my go to desktop browser. But I didn't like it as much as Chrome - desktop or mobile.

    Personally I hate chrome on mobile, but really like Firefox.

    On desktop I use both, but chrome more.

    Different strokes and all that.

    Right now I have both. I'll play with them for a while.
