She says: "Haruhiko often panics because he catches strange viruses on strange sites!"

Golden advice - pls backup your impt data
@irene I edited my comment. Some people don't use adblockers on their cell phones.
A sister of my ex searched for images via Google and on a specific site there was an ad. She clicked on the x to close. First of all - this specific ad / the site behind this ad gets phone numbers through a normal browser. Secondly, a contract was immediately concluded - money money money.
Of course this should be prevented automatically by the mobile phone provider on the one hand and on the other hand it should not be possible to get phone numbers via a browser without much effort.
There are some good ads though. Some ... maybe.
@irene "Contract" - I'm sorry, don't know the specific term for such things. Btw it was some years ago ^^
There are several sim card services you could use - like weather, other information etc.
I think it's something like that but I really don't know.
They can use your phone number for debiting money. It's not really a contract but ... it's like you're accepting to pay for this service without your consent. But the "consent" was clicking on the x for closing this ad :D
That it's still possible somehow is very ... strange ... hm.
