We are here to help with your pop-up concerns on your device, Nikkali.

 

We know the importance of making sure your device is protected and not trying to access any harmful sites. 

 

Malicious URL pop up is not specific to a certain site when browsing the web. Please do not click on any link provided as it can cause your device to get a virus or spyware.

 

We're unable to tell if your phone is trying to access malicious sites but, ActiveArmor scans your mobile device and all apps for malware. It looks for Trojans, worms, spyware, and other suspicious software.

 

Here are some great tips to protect yourself again malware:

  • Be careful when clicking on links in emails and text messages.
  • Install, use, and regularly update anti-virus and anti-spyware software.
  • Make sure your operating system (OS) has all the latest security updates.
  • Check online accounts for unauthorized activity.
  • Review trusted online sources for information on protecting your computer.

We hope this information helps! Please let us know if there are any other questions or concerns you may have as we are always here to help.

It seems like your system might be infected with malware or a virus that is causing the continuous increase in unsafe URLs and the malicious activity notification. I would suggest running a full system scan using a trusted antivirus software to detect and remove any threats. Additionally, you should avoid visiting suspicious websites or clicking on unknown links to prevent further infections. It's also a good idea to keep your operating system and security software up-to-date to ensure maximum protection.
