I get a lot of pop ups that I dont want. How do I get rid of them?


I have a new S3 and I keep getting a lot of pop ups for Apps and games that I dont want. It keeps telling me that "This page wants to open a new play store window, Allow? "Yes or No." I also get a lot of pop ups for games like Clash of Clans which I dont want. I have looked over the setup menus and anything regarding Ads has been turned off but I still get these. Any help would be great Gary

Grab AdAware from the play store. It will tell u which app is pushing ads to you.

Usually it is because you are running certain free app and they rely on advertising to fund them

Hey lucky, did you try the suggestion for adaware?
no AdAware was found from play store.
I have the same problem, because I've tried to install the APK application?

It could be. Installing unknown applications (especially from untrusted sources) may include malware
Sounds like an adware. Adware like Esurf.biz often create unwanted pop-ups and new tabs on the browser to mislead you clicking on its ads. If you have such kind of phenomenon, it's very necessary to check your device.

your compute rmight be infected by adware.
check extensions/add-on, remove the suspicious one.
if ads still appear, try resetting browser settings.

Or, you better download  antivirus software to scan the entire system.

Good luck!
