I believe that my phone is infected with a virus. Lately, a warning popped up frequently when I was browsing. It says “Your browser is heavily damaged due to 6 viruses” and is 46.4% corrupt. It’s happened twice before and it was 3 viruses then. What should I do now? How can I remove the virus completely? I hardly can use the browser. It loads slow and redirects me to websites I don’t recognize all the time. Please help me out. Thank you.
