Beware of Pop-ups Warning of Virus Attacks
Do you see messages on your smartphone browser cautioning you about your phone being infected with a virus, directing you to the Play Store to download a particular app or taking you to an unfamiliar web page? It’s a ploy to take over the DNS settings on your WiFi router. It makes browsing on mobile almost impossible. When you encounter such a problem, be sure to clear all your cache memory and browser history, reset your WiFi router and reconfigure it. Although there isn’t a concrete solution to such a problem, ensuring that your router has the latest firmware installed can be helpful. You can check and install the latest firmware by visiting the website of the router manufacturer. Log in to the router settings and reset. To do this, you can seek help from your broadband company’s customer support. Make sure you change the password and the DNS settings.
