    Default Ad Service

    We have a Nexus7 that is mostly used by the kids. I keep an eye on what they use it for etc. today I found that on my sons account a popup keeps appearing in the centre of the screen saying "Ad Service" and then a number, for instance "Ad Service470" This displays for a couple of seconds disappears and then reappears with the next number, ie "Ad Service471".

    I asked him how long this has been happening and got the answer "oh ages" as if it was of no concern (bloody kids).

    Anyone know what it is or how to deal with it?

    Default Re: Ad Service

    Welcome to Android Central! Popups like that are typically associated with a particular app, and can be hard to pinpoint short of uninstalling apps one by one and seeing if it goes away. Apps like AirPush Detector might be helpful, but they usually detect ads that appear in the Notification Bar, rather than popups.

    Thanks that's what I feared.

    Seems a bit pointless as the popup isn't tapable or anything so it's not really achieving anything other than being annoying.
