    OK, so I don't know when this started, but for a while now ads have been popping up in my home screen and in my notification bar. I also have noticed that my tablet randomly opens google play and takes me to some advertised app like Game of or puzzles and dragons etc. Does anybody know what might be causing this? My device is an Google Nexus 7 2013.

    Hello. You might have installed an app that includes these ads onto your device. I suggest trying Trustgo Ad Detector to see if it finds the culprit.

    Trustgo ad, s no longer on the playsyore, for the sake of others, I would recommend Iobit, an antivirus that I have on mobile and PC, just type in Iobit and click the first one, they have other apps, but in this case you only need the first.
