Is it possible to get malware on your iPhone? I have a 4S, and I recieved this pop-up yesterday saying I had "won" something. It said mobitracking.net (or.com) on it and then said to click to "accept".
Obviously I did NOT click on it, and since there was no other way to get rid of the pop up other than clicking accept, I had to do a cold boot on my phone. I've since gotten the pop-up two more times, each time having to do a cold boot.
I'm not sure what the deal is, but I send and recieve emails, etc. Haven't changed anything recently.
I'm wondering if there is a malware or anti-virus app for the iPhones? I've looked in the app store, but it's pretty limited, and as far as the reviews go not worth the money. If anyone knows of a good app to remove the malware, or if you know of a way to get rid of the malware (preferably without doing a full restore which would take an entire day) I would really love to hear from you.
Thanks in advance!
