"Your Phone Has 1 Problem. Tap Here to Improve It." I have received this advice several times in.my email. I have ignored it until my curiosity prodded.me to check it for the source comes from myLot. But doubt prevented me. "Anyway I have nothing to lose if I tap it with the reason that I may the problem of my phone. "Presto!" It's a virus remover that I need to install to secure my phone. I definitely discarded it. I don't want to compromise my phone. It may be good or not. But to take chances is to regret later. If it's not dubious why myLot URL is used? myLot doesn't have any promo sbout virus remover. Does it have? Any reaction to this, @myLotBugs?

@Nakitakona If I do not know something I either ask or delete it because it could be someone wanting to give you a virus and not a virus remover.

@Nakitakona Yes, if you do not know them or the person you should delete. I know you are curious. Don't open any attachments. That is really where they get you with the virus.

They can change url to looks like MyLot even if they don't have any relation with it.

You're right. Why are they using myLot url and when I open it I was redirected to another site and sometimes to apps that I have to download. That's why I am doubtful.

@Sojourn Nope. Antivirus apps have a hidden virus as others claim

For I had been a victim before. I installed the trial virus remover. It kept on popping up and kept displaying 20 to 50 viruses and pressured me to get a licensed one in order to remive all those viruses. I uninstalled it. It kept on recurring as if it couldn't be undone. I thoroughly clean my computer and everything, but it wasn't effective. Until I found the solution. It's too complicated. I couldn't remember it anymore.

You're right. Since I had learned a lesson, once is enough. I don't take any second chances anymore.
