    Default Pop up ads

    So a few days ago I started getting these pop up advertisements on my phone. They come up randomly several times a day, they take up about a third of the screen and when I select to close them they "minimize" to my notification bar. From there I cannot swipe it away I have to open it and close it. Is anyone else experiencing this? Also the ads pop up regardless of what app I am in. I need some tips on how to get rid of this. It's driving me nuts! Thanks in advance 😊

    What happens if you swipe the notification shade down--do you see the ad in the notifications? Try long-pressing one, and see if you can get the App Info. If there is an app associated, uninstall it.
