It started that same day that I updated. I have downloaded pop up blockers.  I have uninstalled 3rd party apps.  The pop ups interfere with my videos, taking pictures and everything. I have a pop up at least every 20-30 seconds.

Yikes, that cannot be fun at all. I live on my phone, so I completely understand how important it is to correct this. Just so we are all on the same page, these pop-ups happen randomly and not with just specific applications correct? I too have experienced this after the update, and there is some setting in your phone you may want to look into to help control those pop-ups. Navigate into settings>google>ads. On this page, you will see ads by Google and other options to control the ads you see.

Second time this happened after an update, spent some time with support to fix it the first time, guess I'll have to rinse lather repeat with every update?

Or just delete the third party apps you installed on your device that are causing the pop ups and they will be gone forever

That really doesn't make sense. If everything was working fine but then Verizon updates your device and the issues start then how is it the apps? And it only became an issue with Oreo.

Here is what seems to be happening, the update not only turns ads on in Google it also changes your privacy settings & hence the bombardment of ads. First change your settings for ads in Google. Then go to: http://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2&lang=EN

to scan for ads & opt out of them. You'll need to run it a few times but it resolved the issues for me and I didn't delete any apps..

I have been having the same problem with ads constantly popping up since I got my new phone. They are very annoying. I tried the google thing but they quieted down for a little while but started up again. I guess I will have to try it again. I posted the same question and got no help what so ever.

chrome browser & adblock plus eliminates ads on my phone + pc.

3rd party apps are notorious for ads, live with 'em or eliminate the app/s.
