    I won't deny watching porn but it was perfectly legal stuff and suddenly I get a pop up literally accusing me of watching illegal porn (zoophilia/child porn), which I absolutely never did, and they then proceeded to ask me for £100 within the next two working days or else not only will my phone be locked but I'll wind up on the sex offenders' list?

    What the actual hell? How can I pay a fine for something I wouldn't dream of doing in a million years?

    You seriously believe this? It's malware. Give your phone a security scan.

    I had something similar watching big bang theory on my laptop. just report it to cyber crime teams. this incident has made me more vigilant when streaming tv programmes however.

    Why would you watch porn on a shared computer, you deserve adware lol. Why would I cover my tracks on a computer that I am the sole user of?...

    Fairy snuffs on the first point. But, Google filters / censors the suggestions, they never show for me, plus I only search from google itself not the web bar. Pretty sure that you can alter the setting though to suit your own needs.
