    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

    I have seen this before. It is usually an advertisement that you get on Ad.fly telling you to download an app to get rid of the "Hornyworm.apk". If your not root, applications can't install other applications behind your back.

    actually u just say that the ad say your device need to be rooted. nah rooting can cause a serious problem pros: you can delete system file,run few app that modify something like game and the negative side is your system cold be broken and there wil be some problem like bootloop and etc. if you root your phone but you not install super user app/busybox you cant use the root function soif you install su app and your device rooted be aware because it can modify your system. thx for reading
