I recently used an app that was for live wallpapers and then got a pop up that made a beeping sound (like the typical bomb from movies). I read some reviews of the app which describe the message as a scam, but for the future does apple even provide this type of message?

Link to the google search of the app cover for the app I was using when the incident occured

Link to img search of app cover of app I downloaded minutes before this one that may have also caused the incident (This one did lag which is a symptom listed for a virus, but also my device is sort of outdated and doesn't get updated any more so maybe the app is too updated

  • The first and the second link are the same, is this how you wanted it to be? – nohillside Nov 20 '17 at 5:43
  • No, I didn't mean to link the same link twice, thanks – GBikeZ8 Nov 20 '17 at 6:25

No, any scary popup about viruses on any computer can safely be ignored. An actual message from an actual virus scanner (which doesn’t exist on iOS anyway) will be more measured.
