Virus in phone

2018-03-05, 15:52 PM

My phone is showing pop-ups and advertisements. Random links are being opened automatically in Chrome. I am pretty sure that my phone has got a virus from the APK that I downloaded some days a ago from an unverified source. What should I do now?

Solved! See the solution

the first thing would be to uninstall that APK, then you could look through Settings > Apps and see if there is anything that looks out of place.

There are also many  options for anti Malware apps in the play store.

Other than that the final option would be a factory reset
