    I have a Sony Xperia Z3 and I keep getting pop-ups asking for apps such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to be installed! However I already have those apps installed on my phone. I have unknown sources blocked, therefore every time it happens my phones automatically blocks them from being installed.

    It is happening more and more frequently and becoming extremely irritating!! These apps are trying to install every hour!

    When the app gets blocked, I get a little pop-up message at the bottom of the phone for example.... 'TwitterEurope1223.apk could not be installed'. The 'Europe1223.apk' part seems to be the same even whens its Facebook or Instagram.

    I am thinking maybe my phone has a virus or something but to be honest I am clueless! Can anybody help me stop this from happening?

    Thanks
    Steve

    I would try to do a factory data reset and don't install any apps to see if you still have the same problem
