Hello! I was just on YouTube and I clicked on a link accidentally and it lead me to a new tab and a pop up came up saying something like warning: "Your android might be infected" and something else small but I freaked out and exited out of everything. Now I'm worried I have a virus I deleted all my information on my phone and my apps but it said android and I have an iPhone so I don't know but does anyone know If I should be concerned or what should I do! Is this a threat or not?

Hello, there's nothing that you should worry about. What you've experienced is not a virus but an advertisement only. Companies use that kind of advertising technique to get your attention and will force you to click on their ad. The fact that they said "Android" and you're using iOS already sound fishy.

Hello,
when surfing on internet sometimes we came across such warnings as you said. You should have the updated anti-virus on your mobile to prevent your mobile from such events. As you have already deleted all your information and apps no need to do it again in future. When such situations occurs just exit from such web pages. First check all your mobile functionality doing well and no issues occurring so no need to concerned about it. It may be threat so best thing we can do is always keep the anti-virus updated on mobile.
