    Hello, for the past couple weeks I have been getting messages in Chinese. My phone is also asking me to randomly sign into iCloud so I'm a bit afraid I'm vulnerable to something. Here is a screenshot. Any help is GREATLY appreciated, thanks!

    Whatever you do, do not click on that url in the message.. that is a phishing site.

    were you getting these as randoms or from friends? Reason I am asking is a friend is sending another friend text but on her end she is receiving them in Chinese. I am waiting on a screen shot from her. It seems its only when she receives them from her.

    looks like a mass text message sent to phish people. notify apple and let them know of the phishing attempt.

    Anyone else seeing something like this? My brother is getting something similar, but it's from me. I'm on a iPhone 7+ and he's seeing some of my messages in chinese characters on both his Nexus phone and after he upgraded to the Pixel.

    Are you both on AT&T's network? If so, and messages sent from iPhones to Android phones were sometimes changed to Chinese characters, this is a know problem--that supposedly has been corrected recently. I had to same issue for several weeks....
