    Trying again. Basically, it said I had 4 viruses and my Dtek50 will die if I don't install their app.

    That doesn't look like Facebook. My guess is its bogus. If you're worried about it, run the dtek app and see if anything comes up. But it looks like any one of those random pop-ups designed to make you install something.

    Just close your browser and clear the application data in settings.

    So if you're using Chrome do the following:

    Go to settings, Apps, Chrome, Force Stop

    Then go to Storage, Clear Cache.

    On Firefox, but can probably do the same thing.

    You opened a little no in the FB in-app browser. You may just close it and ignore that pop up.

    tons of crap like this happens from links of FB. Even with celeb accounts and stuff. They are being paid to publish stuff from crap sites that have shady practices. The internet is a bad place in general.

    Get a browser that blocks ads and popups. My lady had this problem all the time on her Android until I downloaded a better browser.

    I use Dolphin on my ipad. It works beautifully. There is an Android version, but I don't have an android device, although I would expect the same level of goodness. That would be my first choice.

    I believe on her phone I installed Adblock Browser and she hasn't complained about those popups anymore.

    I've had that stupid message pop up while attempting to read various articles from my FB feed. They are attempting to get you to install software you most likely don't need, and are hoping you are gullible enough to do so. Personally, I wish there was a way to feed them middle finger emojis and pics of prolapsed rectums every 5 seconds for the next 250 years.

    Make note of the app name as well.... you know full well it's certainly scummy. Wouldn't want to install it later for lack of remembering the name and thinking it might be useful.

    I don't get... it's illegal to go around and scam an old couple into replacing their roof. But to trick people into downloading software - that usually has a fee attached (usually for the removal of it)....

    Think the App seller and the company that is feeding the "advertisement" should be just as guilty.

    This is why I am always hesitant to even use FB, and I certainly use caution when clicking on a link within it.
