    Default Problem with hornyworm.apk and pop-up ads on my android?

    I have an htc one and recently i have been receiving ads from this hornyworm.apk site and I've been receiving pop-up ads on my home screen. I think it is an ad for an antivirus that cost money. Whenever i open snapchat and other apps, that is when the ads and hornyworm ad pop up. I have deleted snapchat (and reinstalled it) and several new apps i downloaded. I have also installed several antivirus apps but they have not done anything to solve the problem. I am taking any suggestions to solve this problem because it is very annoying.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's probably associated with one of the apps you have downloaded. It's not a virus so the anti virus software you are using won't pick it up.

    Try clearing cache and data in the apps you have recently installed. All else fails do a factory reset.

    You should clean the cookies as well as your history files on a regular basis. I do it at least once a week.

    What I did if it was an app when it pops up open the recents tab and hold the
    one that's most recent. Then it will show options. Click app info. From there uninstall it

    I did this on a nexus 7 2012 running paranoid android.

    Either way it should work on every device
