    I recently bought an Android Stylo. I downloaded an antivirus app and everything was running great. As of today however, a pop-up ad that takes up my entire screen started showing up every minute or so. I downloaded showbox yesterday (I shouldn't have and I know it) and now it can't be uninstalled and these ads are annoying... My antivirus doesn't detect anything harmful, but I'd still like to get showbox off my phone to see if that stops these ads. Any idea on what to do?

    And therein lies a lesson. Don't sideload apps, don't get malware. In any case, boot up in safe mode and uninstall the app. If the ads persist maybe try an adblocker
