    New Android Ads trigger fake Virus warnings

    Not all of the ads, but there are a couple that as soon as they load will redirect an Android user to AndroidSafety.net and claim that the phone is infected and that you'll need to download a fix.

    Does this only happens on an Android device?

    Are you using the Android web browser or the Tapatalk app for BG?
