We feel sure that was the result of a bad ad that Google served us.

Hopefully they removed it.

Thankfully, my security settings won't accept a download attempt without approval, but the back button has been disabled and I've had to close Chrome each time to get out of the session.

This is the only website that's happened with on my phone. Not sure what the source or cause is, and it doesn't happen from my Apple desktop Chrome browser.

Be careful out there, RVers!

Edit: Mods, feel free to delete or move this as you see fit. Just wanted to drop it where you and the most users would see it. Feel free to message or email me if you need more information.

I received that pop-up on my Samsung phone last month. I simply closed the browser ( I was on public WiFi at a hospital). I then downloaded Malwarebytes for Android and I've never seen that pop-up again.
Never open that pop-up or you will download a nastie; that requires a complete reset to OEM specs to clear.
