    Maybe because the Galaxy 3 phones aren't secure enough. I'm not sure. It happens at least 3 times a week. When I press the home button, it goes to the home page. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I'd post in the Malware section of the Forums...

      Are they happening when you visit certain websites?  Those messages are coming from websites you are visiting/being redirected to, not a malicious app installed on your device.

        i can just sit my phone down, and messages like that will pop up. Uber app pops up too. Game apps also. When I click on repair button, it sends me to a phone antivirus app. Galaxy 3 doesn't catch the pop up ads, I guess. Is there a legit app that will help with that annoying problem?
