Play Store popping up after unlocking my phone
Within the past week, at least once a day, whenever I unlock my phone it opens to either the Play Store (if I'm connected to the internet), or to my browser with an ad- that I'm assuming would lead to the play store, for random apps. It wouldn't be that big a deal but today I left my data on while I wasn't using my phone and it used up a majority of my limited data. I would appreciate help in solving this predicament.

Re: Play Store popping up after unlocking my phone
Welcome to Android Central! You probablly installed an app that carried some adware at some point. Try installing something like Lookout's Ad-Network Scanner & Detector. If that doesn't find anything, you may have to uninstall apps one by one until it stops.
