My Samsung tablet has been locked by a fake site called Rhey want 200.00 to unlock it. What can I do?
Hello! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the model of your Samsung tablet?

Does it affect only when using the internet? Or you cannot open any app at all?

Did you try to power off the tablet (press & hold the power on/off button for about 15 seconds), then turn it back on and check?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
