I was on my Kindle Fire and all of a sudden a website called android security free.org popped up. I didn't click on it or anything and now it pops ub every 15 seconds regardless of what i'm doing. If i'm playing a game it just opens up silk and shows the website that tells me I have 124, 540 new Android threats. Is this from the kindle itself or just a pop up. How do i get rid of it, should I install it? Please help!

Do not install it, it is malware. You have a malware infection. The best way to handle this is to reset your Kindle back to factory settings. You can do this under Settings - Device.

Some may say to use an antivirus program but you really should not risk it. Much easier and 100% guarantee that it is gone to rest back to factory. You can always redownload the books and apps you are using. You'll loose data, like your favorite game's levels and anything you copied to the device via USB. Everything else in the cloud. Also, stay away from the last few apps you downloaded. Most likely it was hiding in one of those. Just for our reference what were the last few you downloaded?
