Ask a Computer Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, my name is Chris!
The message that you received was NOT from Apple. This was a scam trying to trick you into downloading software to your computer. And it's entirely possible that the software it was trying to get you to download was itself a virus.
There are a number of scams going around right now that involve pop-ups. Sometimes they will tell you that your computer has a virus or has been hacked and they will have a link for software to download. In other cases there will be a phone number it wants you to call.
Apple does not notify people about viruses on their machine. If you receive messages like this, you'll just want to close them out. If for some reason the message won't let you close it out, then go ahead and just restart your tablet.
There are many scams going around right now so be careful. If you have any other questions on this, just let me know.
