⚠️Malware Attack ⚠️ | SoloLearn: Learn to code for FREE!

⚠️Malware Attack ⚠️

Usually, I do not accept any dms other than the dms of some friends. Nowadays, Sololearn sent some useful informations via dm after I purchased pro subscription. Likewise, I received a message from Sl news. I accepted it since it was similar to sololearn. But I heard it was a fake and scammer account later. It sent me a link and I opened it. I was unable to use back key to go back. I closed it and left it. But my phone functions are not good now. Am I attacked?🥺 What can I do for it if I was attacked?

Really Risha ☔ I don't like to open any kind of link given by anonymous users. Ok if you are enthusiastic to open it (and don't know whether the link is hacked or not) open it on icognoto tab(but yet I will advise to not open) Now - I checked that you said that you press middle button. But that still mean that you are in web. Try to clear the whole chrome history and don't forget to clear cache. Then you'll become safe(in my views) And bs alert citizen now onwards. Hope this helps ✌️

Risha ☔ Sadly, I'm not a security expert and I don't know much about them. But the only thing I am aware is to not click any links sent by random people in the Internet without having proper knowledge about the source. The best thing to do is to ask for help from an expert(in your case Team SoloLearn or mods). But I found this link in the internet useful about what to do and what not to do... https://livelearn.ca/article/digital-citizenship/what-to-do-when-you-accidentally-click-on-a-spam-link/ [You can trust me here :)]

No Name 👽 Welcome. Check that the links lead to the Sololearn website next time. 😸😉

No Name 👽 Well, the hacker sent you a link to something other than the SoloLearn website. As far as I know, the real SoloLearn only sends links to their own website.

Don't open any links even if they are from SoloLearn is its some address except www.sololearn.com/
