How to remove “Your device has been blocked” ransomware virus from Android tablet or phone?

Cyber criminals have been spreading ransomware viruses on Windows-based computers for some time. These types of infections became popular in mid-2006 and continue to infect personal computers and extort money from their victims. Recently, security research began showing a rise in Android-based mobile ransomware infections. Commonly, ransomware viruses exploit the names of authorities including the FBI, USA Cyber Crime Investigations, and The ICE Cyber Crime Center - making fake claims that users must pay an amount of money (for supposed law violations such as watching pornography, using copyrighted files, etc.) in order to unblock their devices. In most cases, cyber criminals employ the Green Dot MoneyPak, Ukash, or PaySafeCard pre-paid card services to collect fake fines from unsuspecting mobile device users. Tablet and mobile phone users should be aware that paying these fines as ordered by these messages ...

Mojotab.com Redirect

mojotab.com is a fake Internet search engine claiming to enhance the web browsing experience by allowing creation of 'to-do lists', and by providing quick access to various popular websites. Therefore, many users believe that mojotab.com is legitimate and useful, however, this website is promoted via the MojoTab browser hijacker - a form of unwanted software that stealthily modifies Internet browser options without permission. Furthermore, mojotab.com and MojoTab continually record various data. Following infiltration, MojoTab hijacks Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, stealthily assigning the new tab URL, default search engine, and homepage options to mojotab.com. These changes may seem insignificant, however, users are unable to revert them, since MojoTab continues to reassign browser settings when attempts are made to change them. Developers essentially use the MojoTab browser hija...
