Just got this virus (or one vey much like it) on my iPad Air. Went into:
Settings/Safari/Clear History and Website Data
and it seems to have gone. Whew!

I tried it on my ipad air but no result!
Tried all suggestions from various sites but still can't do anything in safari
Does it make any difference that I (as always) was on the 'incognito'mode?
More suggestions?

Thanks!!!

The thing is, i got that on the iPad, and i was on Chrome, so i can't do the "settings-Safari-clear cookies or history stuff" the only option i got in settings for chrome are: location, photos and microphone so i dont know how to gen rid of it. I cant use chrome anymore. What should i do?
