Since yesterday, I have a problem with the page « vip lucky gifts center » showing each time I visit some websites I always visited without problems. I found out some people also have this problem recently.

I cleared history/data of Safari, Facebook browser and YouTube app, but this pop up is showing still.

What should I do? Is there a true antivirus for iPhone?

Is it installed from an app? Maybe I should remove all my apps and games?

Got that one I think just yesterday, and I don't think I've seen a single one before then since I got my Pro Max.

It's probably an advertisement. The advertisement system can use javascript and some web devs use javascript to create popups with whatever content they want. Have you tried an adblocker?

Double-check Settings > Accounts&passwords for any new/suspicious accounts. If you see any, delete it and check if you can still repro the ad.
