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 was just watching something on website, but a sex website came up, I actually wanted to close it down but maybe click on something wrong, then this Blocked-safari.com warning thing showed up. 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?
