    I got the FBI warning on my iPhone 6 in safari. I got it to go away by just restarting the phone and then closing safari, but my question is: should I reset my iPhone completely to make sure that it is gone or is it not worth it? Hard to tell from doing an online search most of the problems seem to have happened on MacOSx or Windows.

    It's just a fake warning to try to get people to download malicious software. Not really a problem for the iPhone. However, I would force close Safari, the open settings, go to safari and clear all the website history and cookies. (The blue link in the pic below)

    Clear browser cache and data then reboot phone and you will be fine (reboot not required but a good idea) Also stay off porn sites and sites that you wouldn't trust .

    This is usually fixed by putting your phone into airplane mode (because in some cases, the pop-up won't go away) and then clearing your cache.

    I tried to read this post with my quad lingual skills, yet I haven't figured out what you mean exactly.
