Hello, may I ask some question here? Why does a white screen keep coming up on android? A few minutes ago, I browsed a video on webpage about porn thing, and then that white screen warning some porn illegal actions start to keep popping up to block me to do anything on my android Samsung tablet. But actually I didn’t watch banned porn video. It says I break some United Stated laws! It blocks my internet access on tablet totally. I can’t see the settings, photos , contacts and can’t make phone call or text message. Is it really from the FBI police department because it also demands a fine amount of 500 dollars to unlock my android?
