storage.googleapis.com 'virus' question

Recommended Posts

I feel so dumb now. A family member did send me something which looked like a youtube video on facebook messenger on my Android phone. I clicked on it but then I noticed something was off so before the link could fully open I closed it. Then I decided to remove all my browser history for the past 24 hours, changed my password for facebook and ran a virus scanner on my phone which stated all clean. Also went through my phone to see if some weird files where downloaded, none. No weird pop ups either.

But I'm still I'm scared by this mistake some stuff like passwords might have been stolen. Is that possible? Or is the googleapis 'virus' just adware like Google tells me it is? I'm usually very careful clicking links but it seems I now I cannot even trust links family members send me.

This happened to me awhile ago aswell, its a facebook login keylogger, it doesnt steal information unless you sign in to the "player" but this only spreads mostly through exploits that was in your family/friends facebook messenger (as in they've been hacked) and you should inform them by other means then facebook messenger.
