    I keep getting chrome pop ups for crypto currency sites. My pop up blocker is turned on and I have run multiple virus scanning apps and all have come back with no viruses. Does anyone have any issues what I'm dealing with here?

    I'm having the same issue on my S9+
    I also keep getting full screen ads. I'm so close to restoring my phone because I can barely use it at this point.

    Same here, im guessing but it has something to do with one of your apps you have downloaded, you have to uninstall it, figure out which one it is. Mines keep going to crytocurrency news, It happens when you have a Browser Based App Open or in the background. But remember hurry up and close out of that website cuz they could be mining your phone making your battery die quickly or run slower

    I deleted the only app I had recently downloaded, but that hasn't fixed the problem. I really don't want to do a factory reset, so if there are any other apps or anything that could fix this, that would be awesome!

    First, clear the cache partition and reboot. If it still pops up, check the settings, battery usage, and see if it triggered the offending app. If not place in Safe mode and confirm it is a 3rd party app. If no pop-up in safe mode, start deleting apps until you find the culprit. You might also benefit from buying Norton, Symantec or other virus tools. Good luck.

    I found an answer on internet. There is a program called Addons Detector. I downloaded it. I scan my device. In the list of apps I've searched leadbolt there. And I saw that "Save and Repost Instagram" app has it. And I remove that app. Try to find yours Good Luck!

Maybe it will work than? It havent had any problems befor. I charged it this morning for a little bit, than the light on the screen was twitching. And it stopped. Than when I was watching youtube and I flipped the screen, hirozontally, it was twiching again. Than I turned it back againt, it stopped. So when I turn the screen back to horizontal. It happend again. i turned it back. And after a couple of secound the screen wouldnt work. And now its stuck like that. (((. And also Randomly the other day a new site on google chrome would pop up, while I was watchingyoutube. And it said cryptos security FBA, secure your divice and something like that I didnt read it I exited and it would pop up like 10-15 min appart. ... please help

    Like the person above me, I also used addons detector and it gave me a list of apps that were sending me pop up ads. "Save and Repost Instagram" was also one of the apps I deleted and I haven't received a single pop up since!!

    Just deleted that app hopefully no more pop ups.

    I can't seem to find the same save and repost app that I had on the playstore anymore, hopefully it's been taken down.

    I have been having the same problem, Verizon and Samsung were both unable to help. I just deleted that app as well, fingers crossed.

    Haven't had one since uninstalling, and I had been getting them every 15-30 minutes.

    12 hours after deleting the save and repost app and no pop up ads. That definitely seems to be the culprit!
