Just some silly pop up.
I use Adblock by Futuremind. I got it when it was available for a free download.

Hey guys, thanks and indeed most of the time I use Chrome, except for opening links in mail, then Safari auto kicks in!

I'll try using Safari as main browser then and AdGuard.

Cheers

May I suggest Block Bear? I find that it actually blocker blocks more than Adguard free.

Don't know if I can resist! Thanks for the confirmation.

Then click it.

Look at the url - look at the crap msg, look at what nonsense it is , --- it's in Safari for you browsed to it. They didn't detect anything.

How do people still fall for this. If you wanna click it, click it! Tell us how it goes :)

Or join the rest of us who know this is nonsense and you have nothing to worry about - stop browsing sites where they take money from scammers that place ads like that

It is certainly funny that someone would trust that URL. It screams scam and fake only by itself. Then there's something else, a website cannot scan your device and actually find anything harmful. Quite the contrary, it will attempt to harm your device instead.

I'm surprised how many posts of this variety we're getting of this variety lately. Apple is infamous for its "walled gardens", but if there's any advantage to that it's the near complete impossibility of installing malware on iOS devices.
