One minute, you’re browsing your favorite websites on your iPhone and then disaster strikes… or so you think.
You’re suddenly greeted with a popup that contains some variation of the message “A virus has been detected on your iPhone! Security breach! Your data is not safe!”
Once you have a minute to collect yourself, you realize you’ve been hit with yet another fake security warning.
They’re irritating, and potentially dangerous if you fall for them. But now, you don’t have to worry about them any longer.
Here is what you can do to easily disable these fake iPhone security warnings so that you never have to deal with them again.
1. Close out of Safari and open the “Settings” app on your iPhone.
2. Turn on Airplane Mode, which will temporarily disconnect your iPhone from the Internet. This is important, as it allows you to reset Safari in a way that will stop these fake security warnings in their tracks.
3. Scroll through the “Settings” app until you find the option labeled “Safari.” Tap once on it.
4. Tap the option labeled “Clear History and Website Data,” which will delete the files giving you the fake security warnings in the first place.
5. While you’re in “Settings,” turn on the options labeled “Block Pop-ups” and “Fraudulent Website Warning.”
At that point, you can turn off Airplane Mode and get back to using your iPhone without worrying about these security notifications any further.
