Advertising popping up

Hey all,

I have advertising popping up all the time on my screen while I’m on apps that shouldn’t have it (whether whatsapp, alarm clock etc.), but can’t find their sources. Anybody could advise me how to change that ?

Thanks!

Well you have two options. Either use an ad-blocker like AdAway or find and remove the app that causes this (I’d guess a custom launcher, an anti-virus app or something like that). AdAway can help identify the guilty app too with it’s “Log DNS requests” and “Scan for Adware” functions.

When the add pops up, press the squar button on you phone. It will show you a list of opened apps and the top visible one being on top of the list. Know you know the name of the app responsible for this pop up. Simply uninstall it.
