Scam yes. Sometimes they even have your phone or computer make an alarm sound. Took my computer to a nerd place the first time it did it.

I think Google would know what the plural of 'virus' is.

If you hadn't been looking at adult sites, then there would be no question in your mind......

I would think that they also f'ed up by not recognizing that iphones do not use google play for apps.

Weird on a iPhone, usually IOS will take care of it. Maybe I would stop by a apple store or Verizon store.

Go to settings and scroll down to Safari, then scroll down to "clear history and website data"

Virii? No wait...virusus? No, no, that's not it. Mary Ellen McCurdy? No, she had multiple diseases but I'm not sure if they were all viral. Hell, I give up.

I suspect it has something to do with the THT hack, I got the same message on my computer and phone a couple times. Cleared the cookies and it quit, I don't use google and the phone has never been anywhere near a porn site. I've clicked some suspect stuff on the computer, don't watch porn.
