There is a message popping again and again on my browser telling me that my browser is heavily damaged by four virus. Is it true? Is my browser really infected by virus? What is the solution to this problem?
Four Virus is also a type of browser hijacker that shows you pop-up ads and trick you into installing their apps which will help them show you more ads according to your interest.
No matter what kind of sites you’ve been visiting or browsing, you don’t have any kind of virus installed on your phone. The message is just to trick you into installing their app.
This kind of browser hijacker is not capable of stealing your personal information.
Most of the antivirus software cannot detect this virus since it is not actually a virus, so you might have to do this manually by yourself.
Try these methods;
Permissions for Android Device:
Go to settings > security and make sure that only trusted apps like Google Play Store or Android device manager are allowed to alter your device in device administration. And make sure that unknown source is not enabled.

If the first method didn’t work then;
Go to settings > application manager and look for the browser that you’ve been using and facing trouble in. Once there just click on clear data and clear cache and then restart your device.
One of these two methods should get rid of those browser hijackers.
