Why Am I Getting So Many Ads When I Use My Internet?
JOYSAB46

I can barely use my internet service due to continuous pop up add coming in over my 4G service. Why is this happening and how do I get it to stop. It is really causing an inconvenience when I am trying to work and causing me such delays not to mention frustration! Is this now part of my service plan because I am paying a lot of money and don't feel I should have to tolerate this type of service.

You have an application that pushes ads to your phone. You need to find it and remove it.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Verizon doesn't utilize pop up ads like that, those are most likely coming from third-party apps/programs and can be avoided by uninstalling

deloused​ is right. Since its happening so frequently you might have a virus on your phone.
