    Content Blocker legit?

    My friends S3 was stuck on the following Content Blocker


    I could find no way to get around it and wondered if it was legit, it says by Samsung or some kind of Web Page con?

    I've never seen that before. Can you give some context as to how it got in that screen?

    Welcome to the forum!
    Yeah, that's a new one for me as well. Are you able to close it out without tapping it?
    If so, try going into you apps, application manager and uninstalling it.
    It may have been included in a third party app you downloaded

    Thanks for the Replies - Before this screen there's a similar screen with Samsung on it.
    It came up I think because it's not my phone after browsing a local news paper site.
    and every time the internet icon was tapped even after reset and no way to exit or enter options.
    In the end we had to click Start in the bottom Right corner after that it just went back to normal I checked plugins and nothing and cleared caches etc and can't see any damage.

    Wish I could give you some info on it, but I've never seen that and I couldn't tell you what it is.

    Iwas able to find the following from Google.

    I downloaded the Samsung browser from the play store and found your picture during setup..
