    Is this malware?
    My iPad is plagued by a persistent "error052100.site" url. It keeps reappearing, telling me I have a virus, and to phone a certain number. Shutting the iPad down and re-starting does not seem to get rid of it. Any suggestions? Should I do a reset?

    It's a scam. Do not phone that number. If that error is appearing when you're using Safari, you can remove Safari history to get rid of it. If it makes you feel safer, you can do a reset of your iPad but be sure to backup first.
