Title is sort of a placeholder. I accidentally clicked an ad on some website which opened up another tab and my device asked me to call a number and the app asked for camera access. This was obviously unexpected so I cancelled out both and refreshed all of my tabs (This occurred on iOS). As far as I’m aware, nothing was installed; will my device be alright?

The pop-up tab was some fake-looking “your device has been compromised, call this number for support” website.

EDIT: I probably fucked up the flair but oh well

    you’ll be fine, it probably wants to open camera and call the number so they can talk you into paying them for tech support but it couldn’t have installed anything
