    Default How to stop popups on note 3

    Hi guys, since yesterday my note 3 keeps popping up with random popups, especially when I'm on whatsapp then randomly comes up while typing. I thought it was the subway app that I downloaded yesterday, but ended up deleting the app but the problem still occurs. I went on the web browser and made sure the block popup was ticked and downloaded air push dectector but still couldn't pick up anything causing the problem.

    My phone sometimes does this too, the app that courses it for me is a appstore not sure if aloud to put the exact name cause it has free paid apps on it but if you have it too that's what's coursing it if not I'm not sure what else it could be.

    When I had this problem (and it really p---ed me off!) I finally found out it was coming from an app that my bf downloaded on my phone. It was called something like Night Vision goggles.

    I think if you search my username on here (sarkycow) you'll find the thread I started asking for help a few months ago for the same type of problem. I got a lot of good suggestions from people on ways to help. You might want to check it out to see if it helps you.

    Sarks.

    It's an app (mostly game apps) that cause this. Start deleting apps till the spam goes away then that app was the culprit.

    Thanks guys the only game app I've downloaded is flappy bird , but that was last week and never had any issues with it the past week. Only started when I downloaded the subway app that I've already deleted.

    Should I delete flappy bird and see how it goes?

    Yes, if it's not the culprit then you can always add it back on. If it's not then I recommend you try some of the suggestions people gave to me in the posting I linked on my previous reply, especially the ones that will scan your phone and point out any problems they find. Good luck, hope you get the problem sorted soon ...I know how annoying it is!
