I think I've accidentally downloaded a virus onto my phone. Every time I enter Google Chrome, ads pop up and get in my way. Also, it keeps opening tabs to porn sites, betting sites, dating sites etc and keeps downloading inappropriate pics onto my device which idk how to get rid of. I've tried everyhing and its doing my head in. Please help!

You have allowed your Google Chrome "extensions".     These allow scammers access to all your personal information, thru Facebook & Linked-in. Kiss your Bk acct Ba-Bye! :devil:

Moving this topic to Android OS because it doesn't belong here.

Applebaby010503, if your phone does not use Android, let us know and I'll move the topic again.

A patently false statement.   There are myriad extensions to the Google Chrome browser as there are to Firefox (add-ons) and MS-Edge, among others, that are useful and secure.  Many of them such as HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock Origin, Ghostery, and the like increase your security significantly.
