    I keep getting ads like Hola Launcher and Badoo and stuff on my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime and sometimes they just download themselves onto my phone how can I stop it?

    Welcome to Android Central! Chances are that you inadvertently installed some adware or malware alongside some other app. Uninstall apps one by one until that behavior goes away.

    Try doing another factory reset, but this time, before you do it, go to Settings>Backup & Reset, and uncheck Automatically Restore. Then do the factory reset. After it's done, and you go through the Setup Wizard, go immediately to the Play Store and prevent any app from automatically installing. Now see if the problem persists.
