The messages falsely further state that the visitors should click a link or button in order to clean or remove the virus or update their mobile devices. But, if the visitors follow the instructions in the messages, they will be prompted to download a malicious app or taken to a fake website that steals personal and financial information.

    It had me go through downloading a particular app. When I did, it started to clear out things to speed up my phone. Then a black hole/vortex opened on my screen and took in files. I deleted the app, downloaded trend micro and ran the scans, and it said I didn't have any viruses. The only thing personal on my phone was contacts. It said my phone was protected. I'm wondering if it is or what should I do?

      No, you are not infected. Once you have not downloaded and installed an app, you didn't infect your mobile device.
