    Default Trouble With Full Screen Ads?

    Hello all,

    I'm new to AC and I'm here to ask if anyone else gets full screen ads on their phones. I've run a bunch of virus scans and nothing seems to come up, and I've uninstalled nearly every app that I think could've been the source of the problem (even GO SMS). I'll post a screenshot as an example of what I'm seeing. These only started about a week or two ago, and went from once a day to every few hours.

    I've got a Verizon Droid DNA, running 4.2.2.

    Any suggestions on how to handle this?

    Tried downloading Airpush Detector, and it couldn't detect anything.

    What SMS app is that in the screen shot?

    It was GO SMS.

    I don't think Go SMS was the app causing this. Clearly you have not uninstalled the one that did it. My first suspect would be a free game of some sort. Also, sometimes uninstalling an app does not clean everything up. You might want to install an app that cleans up the mess. I currently use Clean Master.
