    I'm not sure what app caused this or if it's a virus, etc.... but every day I get notifications from verifiedbysecuredltd for random websites that are clearly spam. never followed a link. Want to get this off my phone but can't find information on how to remove it. I've tried several malware scans, virus scans, air push scans, etc. Finding nothing, though many of these scanners crash. What do I do? I don't want to factory reset or do anything drastic if I don't have to.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are these notifications in the notification bar/panel, or are they popups?

    It's in the Notification Bar/Panel. Get at least one every day at about noon.

    Did you check your app list- all? Make sure the app is not on the device.

    The next time you see the notification, swipe down the notification panel and long-press it notification, then tap App Info.

    Did the long press, Chrome is the app. Been happening to me too over the last few days.

    Long press shows Chrome as the culprit ...

    Sorry for the duplicate post but here's a screenshot of what it looks like.

    May have found the issue, if you go to Chrome / App notifications then App settings you will see verifiedbysecureltd.com under "Notifications", tap it then clear/reset and hopefully that will make it go away. Not sure how it got in there in the first place ...

    Yes, that was what I was going to suggest. Chrome notifications can be useful if, for example, you use the Facebook mobile site--but it's not surprising that annoying developers would also find a way to trick users into turning on Chrome notifications for their own junk.

    Ok, was able to disable the notifications as suggested, but still would like to get to the root of the problem. Something is clearly hiding itself and spamming. Would like to get rid of the source of the problem if possible rather than just make it visually go away. Any ideas on how to discover what's generating them?

    In Chrome, tap Menu>Settings>Site Settiongs>All sites, and look for verifiedbysecuredltd.com. Tap it and then Clear & Reset.
