Re: Avoiding ads

Hi, @torrescat,

 

We'd love to see if we can help you. Are these ads through apps, or are you receiving them through calls and texts? What type of device do you have? Please let us know.

Re: Avoiding ads

If you're seeing the ads on the lockscreen, your home screen or when you make calls, usually those ads come from an app that's been installed on the phone.

 

Popup ads can come from messaging apps, launchers, battery boosters, memory cleaners, flashlight apps, battery apps, calculator apps, and even apps that claim to get rid of viruses. Start with those. You can also check the reviews of the apps you've installed to see if users are complaining about ads.

 

If you can't identify the app causing the ads, you'll need to remove all the apps that weren't installed on the phone when you got it. Make a list of the apps that you remove so that you can add them back on.​ After you install an app, try the phone for a while to see if the ads are gone. If they are, then you know you've found it.

Re: Avoiding ads

Hi @torrescat

 

We need more details in order to assist you. Are you seeing these ads in apps (if so, which ones)? Are you seeing them in your browser? Are these calls or texts?
