Home Malware Programs Browser Hijackers Phone-security.me


Posted: February 22, 2021

The 'Phone-security.me' pop-ups are fake messages, which you may encounter while browsing the Internet on your phone. Usually, these pop-ups are delivered via advertisements spawned by shady websites such as low-quality gambling services, pirated content, etc. Users who see these messages may be told that their iPhone or Android device is infected by multiple viruses and that cybercriminals might have access to their sensitive information, photos, contacts, conversations and more.

The goal of the fraudsters behind these pop-ups is to convince users that they need to keep their mobile devices clean of malware by downloading and installing an anti-virus product linked in the pop-ups. The catch is that the 'Phone-security.me' pop-ups do not promote legitimate software – they may trick you into installing not just useless programs, but also potentially harmful applications.

You should never trust random browser pop-ups telling you about viruses on your computer, or prompting you to install an unknown software. You should ignore such messages, and avoid the websites that spawned them.
