    Maybe it's coincidence, but I'm regularly getting full page ads, video ads, and ads for Google Play apps pop up when going into an app that I have on my phone. It just started a few weeks ago. The ads seem to be from AdChoices. I can't hold my finger on the ad and find out where it's coming from. In the recently used apps, it doesn't have a title (it only runs for a short time and disappears).

    Can anyone advise me what I can do to stop this activity? Maybe it's a coincidence and all my apps are updating to this new advertising scheme, but I'm wondering if I don't have some malware on my phone. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Welcome to Android Central! It's almost certainly due to adware associated with that app. Uninstall it and see if the problem persists.
