Hi. How to unlock Mobile from [email protected] notice on Safari? I have an iPhone 7 and I recently just went to open my browser but received a pop up saying the safari cannot open the browser because the address is invalid. I then noticed an open tab from stating to be Australian Federal Police and that they have locked my browser and to open my browser I have to pay a penalty. I have been asked to send email to [email protected] for unlocking. I’m not sure what this is, is it a scam? It also says I have been viewing illegal content, which I certainly have not. Please help me out. Thank you.
[email protected] notice is brought by a scam virus dispatched by the cyber criminals. If you see such a police threat on Safari that demanding a fine to unblock, your device is infected with a serious virus. The virus blocks Safari and states that it is from the Australian Federal Police. It accuses you of viewing illegal pornography and demands a fine as the punishment. In fact, the information is phony. The cyber criminals are trying to scare you into paying a fine by making up a criminal case in the name of famous police. Besides, [email protected] notice will not disappear and the virus will keep staying in your device until you get it off completely. If your Safari is taken by the “Your device has been locked for illegal pornography,” calm down and do not trust the notice. What you need to do is removing the nasty virus behind this scam to unlock mobile from [email protected] notice on Safari. Do not give it any chance to steal information or money from you.
Someone may say how come [email protected] notice is fake as they have the police email. The email address looks like an official one. No one dares pretend to be the police. Besides, someone did watch porn right before the “Your device has been locked for illegal pornography” warning showed up. They believed that it was the real police warning without doubt. However, we have to tell you that the [email protected] warning is definitely fake. The cyber criminals can imitate the official-like email address and real police notice. They are the ones who dare to steal the name of police to swindle money out of innocent users. They can do anything that help them get money.
Concerning the pornography, it’s still the hackers who play trick for illegal money. The hackers would like to place virus on adult sites and game sites as they are very popular among young and old. Hence, they hold the clue that you probably were watching porn online before the virus popped up. They said you violated the laws of Australia for viewing illegal porn with the elements of child pornography, rape, and zoophilla. In fact, you might only watch regular porn, but it seems that is a bit close to what you have done. In this way, many users fell for it and paid the fine immediately, thinking that they did something wrong and trying to get rid of trouble soon.

The “Your device has been locked for illegal pornography” police threat is still there though they paid the penalty. Sometimes, it may say that your case will be processed in 24 hours. Nothing will change how many hours you have been waiting for. The virus will stay in your device until it gets what it wants from you.
