I was on a pornographic site (ashamed of it) and now it’s saying I was watching it but I had no idea it was child pornography. I was trying to delete it but it wouldn’t let me I heard it was a scam from my recent research and I’m still worried. Also, it says that my apple ID is lock and all my data will be erased after 24 hours. I don’t want to lose anything on my phone, please help!
