Safari Blocked by Metropolitan Police Virus £200 fine – How to remove?

Feb
23

I was on my safari browser on my iPad when a message came up from the metropolitan police blocking my safari and saying that I have to pay £200 via an iTunes gift card to unblock my safari, I was wondering if you know how to get rid of this as I have read up on it and it seems like a scam. Safari has been locked by Metropolitan Police Virus £200 fine, it said my device has been locked for illegal pornography. How do I get rid of a potential metropolitan police virus on an iPad or iPhone?

Metropolitan Police Virus Freezing Safari on iPad/iPhone – How Can I Unlock It?

Metropolitan Police Virus £200 fine is a ransomware hacking users most from UK or Europe. It is a variant of porn scam things created by hackers. When user browsed the web site on his/her iPad or iPhone and suddenly he got this Metropolitan Police warning block on google and Safari, and it said you had to pay a fine of £100 sometimes £200 immediately, or you will face prosecution for viewing illegal sites (which he/she actually didn’t do). Metropolitan Police notification popping up on your Safari or Chrome on your iPhone or iPad is actully a kind of virus or  ransomware which mainly defrauds money from victims. It is not from real Metropolitan Police department. This Metropolitan Police Virus pretends to be from Metropolitan Police to display false warning alert claiming victims viewing pornographic material and for this reason victims have to pay for a penalty of £100 or £200 through iTunes Gift Card. And it threatens that if you can’t send the fine within limited time, your data, pictures, contacts and other information will be taken by them, your case will be told to your friends and contacts and even your criminal prosecution will be transferred to court or Metropolitan police(the Federal Criminal Police Office). Actually this Metropolitan Police notice is just a hoax. victims should know that this is a scam and their device like iPhone or iPad now has a Metropolitan Police Virus(malware or ransomware?). Some victims contacted the device provider company for guidance but there is no luck as the company only produce products not provide virus removal service. No one knows how to get rid of the warning screen because people there have very little knowledge of fixing this iPad virus problem. Metropolitan Police Virus blocked iPhone or iPad? How do I actually take it off ? Where do I go to do it?

How to Choose A VPN for TV & Movie Streaming

Feb
22

Do you like to steam TV and movies in your free time? If you answer “Yes”, I think you probably need to be using a VPN. The following blog will tell you what is a VPN? How is it works? Why, and how to choose a VPN for TV & movie streaming.

What is a VPN?

There are lots of great TV you can stream but is blocked based on your geographical location. Top sources like HBO, Netflix, BBC, ESPN, ITV, Sky Sports, and many more are all geo-blocked. VPN creates a network that is private but virtual. It is private because it guarantees privacy inside the organization. It is virtual because it does not use real private WANs; the network is physically public but virtually private.

It uses a technique known as tunneling to transfer data securely on the Internet to a remote access server on your workplace network. Using a VPN helps you save money by using the public Internet instead of making long-distance phone calls to connect securely with your private network. There are two ways to create a VPN connection, by dialing an ISP,or connecting directly to Internet. It’s very important to consider the privacy policy of a VPN provider and their legal jurisdiction. But I also believe the above is not enough for complete privacy. The most secure VPN provider should have apps with more security features that protect the users from data leaks (dns leak prevention and kill switch), tracking, ads, malware etc. Read the rest of this post »

Got a Call from Microsoft Saying My Windows License Key was Expired – How to Fix This?

Feb
21

Hey, yesterday I just received robot call from 800-558-9204 announcing EMERGENCY, Microsoft Windows license key has expired. To renew license please call 800-558-9204.” I returned the call and a woman’s voice (American accent) directed me to call a number regarding a Microsoft license key that had expired and told me my computer would be “shut down” if I did not renew my license key. I am not a computer literate and don’t understand if this phone message from real Microsoft. I’m afraid if someone will hack my computer but now my computer is really blocked by a license key needs to be renewed warning and I can’t go any further. Could you please help me?

Got a call from Microsoft saying my Windows license key was expired – Is it real?

Call from Microsoft saying my Windows license key was expired is a scam phone message which is from those scam tech support actually. Scam tech support mainly uses this scaring phone call message to scare and defraud people out of money. Scam tech support call and tell phone this fake message “Windows license key was expired” illegally in the name of Microsoft.  Once people scare and trust this phone message is from Microsoft, they will continue to redirect victims to call some toll free number, and then the person on the other side of phone will state your computer is seriously in terrible condition and urgently need a Microsoft Windows license renew as your Windows license key was expired, and you may asked to purchase their products or service at a high price or you may be asked to be remotely controlled by someone from other side of that phone number. Here, you should notice that the produces or services are not secured and even be bundled with malicious software, if you buy and install the products they offer, it would be a bid threat to computer security once malicious software is installed into system. Besides, if you let someone remotely control and check your computer, that person may put virus or malware into system or hack your system and get some important data and privacy. Anyway, don’t trust any words from scam phone message “Windows license key was expired”, as it just pretends to be Microsoft company, but there is no real Microsoft technician.

Here below is the screenshot of this fake Warning “Your Windows Licence was Expired” Lock Screen:

How to Remove “Your device has been locked for illegal pornography” Scam From Safari

Feb
19

Hi I had the Interpol scam on my iPad today so I sent an email as requested asking for my iPad to be unlocked. In the meantime my provider told me to reset my iPad and this has cured the lock down but I’ve received an email from the scammers saying I need to pay a fine. I obviously realize now this is a scam but can they still hack my iPad through email. Please tell me how to remove it?

“Your device has been locked for illegal pornography” Scam – How it Works?

“Your device has been locked for illegal pornography” Scam is defined as a terrible thing that will lock your safari and ask you pay a fine to unlock your safari. According to our experience, some victims pay on that scam but their browser just keep locked, and they have no way to get their money back, the fine is about 100~500 US Dollar, Euro or pound. It means the virus has spread in many countries including United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Newzeland. Just like the FBI Moneypak scam, it seems as legitimate as possible so that innocent computer users will fall for it and pay for the fines. In this way, hackers can collect as much money as possible. Thus, please be careful when your computer gets locked by this fake Canadian Police warning page. The Police Cybercrime Investigation Department Virus is also treated as ransomware that is to extort money from as many mobile device users as quickly as possible by attempting to fool them into believing that they have participated in several serious violations online and must now quickly pay a fine or face severe consequences down the line in the form of legal action and additional monetary fines. This type of virus is spread for the sole purpose of tricking users into sending money to the hackers, and there is not a serious system threat from this ransomware unlike most viruses that give the hackers remote access to the Mobile device (Android phone or Tablet). The hackers only want to infect the mobile device with the Police Cybercrime Investigation Department Virus and then move onto a new victim. Read the rest of this post »

Hi, I am scared right now! I was using my boyfriend’s iPad and a message came up to say it had been blocked by FBI police for looking at pornography and requested a fine to be paid.

I clicked on OK to expect this page can be closed, but it didn’t exit. And next I tried to exit Safari, but it failed. All apps demanding Internet are blocked. I almost can’t access anything on iPad. My boyfriend should blame me if he knows this. What can I do?
