Look at the following screenshot: it shows a virus scare that popped up while I was browsing and visited a particular website on my phone the other day:

  1. Two things wrong ….


    Your Android phone may have Virus

    should read…

    Your Android phone may have a Virus.


    The article ‘a’ was omitted. Wrong grammar


    There is no option to cancel / ignore the message.

    Most likely, pure baloney…

  2. In the first two clauses, it used the auxiliary ‘may’ which marks uncertainty; in the third, it sounded do sure that it was a Virus. Also, ‘ok’ is not an instruction, technically.
