Something about this virus notice is wrong

Posted by Mister Mobility

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:

Something is wrong with the notice. Look at it very carefully and then tell me.


  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.
