    DELETE all the games, useless apps, etc...its usually from an app you downloaded.

    This happened 9 my daughter's galaxy tab. Turned out to be a program called "Selena Gomez dress up". I think it can be anything. I tracked it down using lookouts ad network scanner, which didn't do much but list all of the apps that use ad networks. This one was using MoPub. I deleted apps one at a time starting with the sketchiest sounding and tried putting the tab into standby and then unlocking after each one. The difference was immediate and obvious when I found it. I'm not 100 percent sure, but the ad network scanner seemed to show more programs than my apps in Google play store. Good lucThis happened 9 my daughter's galaxy tab.

Make a list of what you uninstall if you don't want to forget.

    I just had the same issue and removed Z Camera and that seemed to fix it. Using a Nexus 5x.
