    Default full screen pop up ads

    for last few weeks i have started getting full screen pop ads.
    ads are random. not directed on specific products. each time they turn to be endorsing some other product.
    i need not be working on any app. most of the time ads pop up when i m on home screen. i hold and long press to know the add source, but it says nothing (i did this after Air Push Detector advised me to do so.)
    I ran Ad Network Detector and Avast anti virus. both came up with no results.
    its getting annoying, although the ads do not pop up often . may be twice or thrice in a day or so. but i would love to have it detected and taken care off.

    i have attached two image, when i press the left bottom option in first, all i get is tiny lill pop up in second image.

    Thank you guys.

    The only thing I can think of is an app is going rogue. You could try leadbolt opt out: Airpush - Mobile Ad Network | Mobile RTB | Android App Monetization

    Thank a lot Golfdriver97.
    the issue is when i opened the link you provided on my browser, WOT-plugin went red with warning. i am now not so sure whether to go with this or not.
    resetting the device to factory setting will help?

    That is really strange. A reset probably is not a fix, because if it is an app, it will be reinstalled if you have app restoration on.

    Here is how I would go about doing it. Not a reset yet, but uninstalling almost every third party app. Keep Google ones, and other trusted ones. Run those for a week, and slowly add the other apps back. 2 or 3 at a time, and running for a few days, repeating the process.

    Any update on what caused these full screen ads to appear and did you ever get the problem fixed? I too am having the same issue, but where I go, nobody has a fix. Here's a link to my similar query if anyone wants to follow to see if a fix is given.
