    Its on both my wifes Sony Xperia as well as my Samsung S5.
    We both just got it the other day. It tells you that youve been chosen to receive a free phone or tablet. Ive tried outlook ad finder and malware bytes and neither have gotten rid of it or even found it. It seems to pop open when I open up Facebook Messenger on my phone and Facebook on my wifes phone but it also opens up on any Google search
    How do I get rid of it?

    As a first step, have you reported it to Google?

    I sent a report to Google but it seems there should be something that can be done to stop this. This site pops up when i open Facebook app showing a fake Facebook Newsfeed saying I have been selected to win something. When I hit back, it says my my phone is running slow and infected (same url at the top of the screen). When I back out again, I get a redirect url and the screen is blank. Back one more time and I exit back to home screen. If I go right back into Facebook, it works fine. Then I go and in again and I go back through the findforfun craziness again. I have done virus scans through my carrier and 3rd party, all say phone is clean. However this started 2 days ago and the same time my battery started draining and other apps started acting weird. Lagging, strange things. I feel confident that I'm infected and can't seem to clean it. My Note 5 was working perfectly for the last 60 days until this started. I have taken pictures of the screens if that will help. Please help!

    I have been having this same issue and found where an app called "mp3 downloader" or "simple mp3" was mentioned numerous times in other forums as the culprit, it was sure enough a more recently downloaded app, I deleted it and any songs I have downloaded thru it and cleared my cashe and all those jollys and haven't had any issues since, I hope this helps ")

    I have had this problem as well. Almost all the free music downloaders are the culprit. Music Paradise pro has been the one I had issues with. I deleted it and now the problem is resolved. Hope that helps.

    Download Lookout Security. I had the same problem and it found two apps labeled "riskware". The apps were MP3 Downloader and Wolfram Alpha.

    Same thing here as well. I created an account for Lookout app that was on my s6 already and it found two apps that allowed out-of-app advertising without my consent. The two apps were simple mp3 and simple mp3 pro. Download Lookout app and use it. Quick and effective. If I need or want any other music, I'll get simple mp3 again, download music then and there, then delete the app. Hopefully I can keep my music that is and get rid of the problem by deleting the app.

    I have sent a screenshot 3 times to Google...no reply. I have also notified the Attorney General as this is a site that is hidden to us but is able to obtain your email...number..profile..and can access any of it. PSafe, finds it and when you go to their tab to " close" website..you have only closed the screen. It remains in your history.
    An IT guy with 25 years exp. Said..buy an iPhone...Apple does a much better job for the consumer in blocking this trash...no app needed.

    I have the same problem but they're acting like a website that finds people's virus and they say that I have 4 different ones but when I stopped listening they suddenly stopped trying to get my attention
