Could my Android device be infected?

Recommended Posts

Good evening, 

I hope this finds everyone well. A few hours ago I was browsing online for some info for an essay, and I was dumb enough to click a website that redirected me. I can't really remember to where, but I didn't let it load. I clicked back immediately. Nothing was downloaded. I was using Google chrome. 

I used virustotal and the website came up as malware. I cleared Google chrome cache, history etc etc, I have malware bytes on my phone so I scanned it nothing came up, scanned with Avast nothing came up, no downloads at all. 

I downloaded sophos, which identified a .com.google.chrome file as PUA, which i immediately deleted. My phone isn't acting strange or anything, I don't do banking on it as I have a separate device to do so. But sophos also identified another app as PUA, but it's a safe app. 

Should I be worried? What else can I do? I'm paranoid.
