Preparation before removal of malware.

Before starting the actual removal process, we recommend that you do the following preparation steps.

  • Turn off your phone until you know how bad is the virus infection.
  • Open these steps on another, safe device.
  • Make sure to take out your SIM card, as the virus could corrupt it in some rare cases.

Shutting down your phone can be done by pressing and holding its power button and choosing shut down.

In case the virus does not let you do this, you can also try to remove the battery.

In case your battery is non-removable, you can try to drain it as fast as possible if you still have control over it.

Notes: This gives you time to see how bad the situation is and to be able to take out your SIM card safely, without the numbers in it to be erased. If the virus is on your computer, it is espeically dangerous to keep the sim card there.

Step 2: Turn on Safe Mode of your Android device.
