Hello, I have a cyber police lock on my Samsung Galaxy S7 which is a new one. It says it’s from cyber police of FBI federal bureau of investigation and I have 72hrs to pay a $200 fine for the reason that I watched porn material like child pornography on the Internet. And it says it found some porn pictures and videos from my Samsung S7. It is very insulting as I haven’t watched such content online. Usually I just scroll through FaceBook, watch funny Youtube video and chat with friends. Oh, here I remember that this Cyber police lock popped up while I was clicking one of my friend’s picture link on my FaceBook, and from that point, my Samsung is locked completely. I power it off then power it on, this cyber police message is still there. I can’t do anything on it. And I have no clue solving this lockout or does it work if I pay that $200 fine? any advices will be appreciated!
