"Within 3 Days Your Phone will be Locked" Fake Popup Message

I got the fake popup message below, which claims my phone will be locked and I need to call the telephone number 48 601 102 607 in order to clarify the issue. I receive the fake message every single day, even if I restart my phone and download antivirus.

    Open your web browser on your Android phone and let the page load.

    Go to "Settings,"

    Click "Privacy."

    Click "Clear your Private."

    Clear your "Browser History" and Cache.

    Also, go to "Settings" and change your "Homepage" to www.google.com

    If the popup continues, remove unwanted or unknown apps from your device. This is because there maybe malicious app called adware that are generating the popups.

    If all fails, backup your data and do a factory reset.

      This person is right. Adware can sometimes even hide itself in the background, and delete the shortcut on the home screen. Please, be very careful.
