    A few days ago I was on Badoo on my phone and then it directed me somehow do Chrome and downloaded something, that app was only on my home screen but not in my apps or my menu.. I just took it off of my home screen and now ads keep popping up, no matter what I do.. I tried Antivirus apps and phone scanner, but it says everything is alright.
    BTW. I have a galaxy S4

    Welcome to Android Central! You probably unwittingly installed some adware, either as part of some other app or game you installed, or when the phone directed you to Chrome. Did you accept an installation when it downloaded whatever it did?

    You could try uninstalling apps one by one until that behavior goes away. Otherwise, you may have to do a factory reset, then reinstall apps one by one, watching to see if that behavior returns.
