Android Phones are Now having the toughest malware called the FBI or Police lock known as ransomware.This Virus isn’t based on android only,Apple,Computers and other softwares are also a victim.
The main reason why it’s a dangerous malware is because,when this virus gain access into your phone,it locks down your phone with an Unknown password and when any time you attempt to get rid of it then it brings a browser pop-up saying:

ATTENTION! Your phone has been blocked up for safety reasons listed below.
All the actions performed on this phone are fixed.
All your files are encrypted.

Amount of fine is 300$. You can settle the fine with MoneyPak xpress Packed vouchers.
As soon as the money arrives to Treasury account, you phone will be unblocked and all information will be decrypted in course of24hours.
The“ATTENTION! Your phone has been blocked up for safety reasons” lock screen is a scam, and you should ignore any alerts that this malicious software might generate.
Under no circumstance should you send an $300 MoneyPak or MoneyGram Xpress voucher to these cyber criminals, and if you have, you can should request a refund, stating that you are the victim of a computer virus and scam.

How to Remove the Ransomware from Android

Instead of paying a Ransom to these cyber criminals,it’s more better to read this post on removing the FBI lock(Ransomware).

Search in the list of apps for any unknown or suspicious apps. In our case the malicious app is “BaDoink“.
  3. Touch the app you’d like to uninstall.This won’t start the app, but will open up the program’s App Info screen, then click on “Uninstall” button:

If you cannot uninstall the malicious because the Uninstall button is not available, we will need to follow these steps:
