The ICE virus warning appears on my android phone. And it blocks me from doing anything. Anyone else’s phone has been locked by the ICE Cyber Crimes Center Virus like me? Entering a code like it instructs me help unlock my phone? If not, what kind of damage will it do to my phone? I got the ICE warning sit that said I got to pay $250 or I will go to jail and I got it for watching inperope shows and accidently downloaded something from porn hub and my phone locked up, what do I do? This popup says call a number like pin code, how to get rid of it? Is there any way to get rid of the virus completely and get my phone to work normally? Could anyone help me delete the nasty thing? Any suggestion is highly appreciated.
The ICE virus is categorized as a ransomware that usually claims to be from law enforcement agency or government and requests certain amount of fines to unlock the targeted phones, tablets or IPads. As we know that Android smartphones, tablets and Ipads are used by tens of thousands of users around the world nowadays, those cyber criminals won’t miss this wonderful chance to inject all kinds of viruses to phones in order to gain profit. Cyber criminals are deliberately designing different versions of their viruses to intrude different mobile operating systems. Once the ICE virus is running, users will get a big warning and they may be scared, thinking they will surely get a code to unlock their mobile device once they pay the fine without a second thought. In fact，it is just a trick well-designed to scam your money. It accuses the mobile device users have done something violating the law, such as visiting pornography websites or downloading or distributing copyrighted material, distributing spam emails and then claims that a penalty must be handed up in a limited time or your phone, tablet or Ipad will be locked forever. It takes over the whole screen and ask you to input the Moneypak code if you want to unlock your device.

Once it is loaded, you will not able to do anything, not to mention open any app on your phone, tablet or IPad. Each time you power on the phone, tablet or Ipad, ICE virus will come up at once.
