Getting ads that keep popping up on your phone would concern me as well, sullee53. Let's take a look to see what could have caused this. What type of update was completed on your phone? Were there any new apps downloaded to the phone as well?

Try to download malware scanner on the Google play store maybe your phone is infected with Adware. Just a tip my friend

I have not used any new apps. Ever since google did an update a few weeks ago I have been getting full screen pop up ads. They are mostly from adchoice. with some from google play store itself. Yesterday was the last straw for me when I got two ads of a political nature from play store. I'm hesitent to download another malware or ad blocker from play store for that reason. Is there any way to block adchoice. I've tried all the ideas and none will block them all.
