It says “You Internet connection is blocked due to illegal activity detected from your device”. But I was just gonna play YouTube on my iPhone and didn’t watch any porn thing, and then this us marshals warning showed up. Now I can’t get rid of this us marshals warning alert page. Every time when I restart iPhone and open Internet this warning thing show up soon on Safari. How can I remove that nasty warning thing?
