I have to admit that my android phone is infected by a nasty virus with a name GVU. I may download some malicious apps without awareness, and in this way unfortunately my phone is attacked by the cyber criminals. It makes me so annoying that my phone is messed up by the virus. I was scared at first as my phone has never run into this kind of terrible situation. Thank for the help from one of my friends who points out that it is only a scam virus aiming to cheat you to pay for it. Those who design those kinds of viruses must have a black heart. After accepting the unfortunate fact, I try to figure out a way to get rid of it completely. Is anyone can help me out of the problem? Any suggestion is highly appreciated.
