I have been recieving pop ups on my phone "You phone has been blocked" , "Your phone has a virus" and a pop us of a pic with a semi nude lady and a WhatsApp icon as a missed call.
How do I get rid of that.

If it's a WhatsApp pop up / message, I'll say uninstall and delete all the updates of WhatsApp and then reinstall WhatsApp to see if that helps.

Put the phone into Safe Mode > Safe Mode  > https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/how-to-start-my-galaxy-device-in-safe-mode/ turns off downloaded apps and themes etc which may highlight an app or theme that's causing conflict. 

If they stop then theybare embedded in one kf your apps or content you've downloaded.

Start deleting your most recent content once out of Safe Mode until they stop.

You can also run a virus scan through Device Care under Device Protection. 

If I can be of any further help then please don't hesitate. Take care.  😎
