    I have the same problem and I think the problem is with the root. I rooted my device with this app called 'KingRoot' and after rooting there were ads always popping up on my mobile and random apps would get installed without my permission. After a month or so, this problem occured. Playstore started opening up at random points when I am i using my phone. I still haven't found a solution though. If you have rooted your phone with 'KingRoot' as well then I suggest to try to replace that app with the app called, 'SuperSu'. Hopefully the ads will stop.

    This has also been happening to me. It first started by opening a new window that was redirected to the clean master app for sale. Now it's beginning to redirect to toy blaster games, but still often goes to clean master or a fake warning that my storage is low and asks if I want to clean that up. Today it redirected twice trying to go to the zerohodge.com website home page. The virus must not like Trump supporters!
    What to do? I'm going to buy a new phone! And NEVER accept one single update.

    Had the same issue everytime I unlocked my phone it would automatically go into the google playstore.
    I downloaded Malwarebyte and run a scan it found in had malware in one of my apps but to rectify the issue I had to allow it permission to fix.
    The issue has now been fixed

    Open clean master then go to phone boost ,there you will find running apps , search for any suspicious apps . In my case i found an app : com.oscleaner.net. When i removed it my problem was solved.

    No need to reset your phone. I got a perfect solution for this issue. Download malwarebytes from playstore and scan your device. If you see any malware found , delete it. Thats it.

    I used antivirus scanner that found and delete base.apk, but still the pop ups continues. Tried cleaning cache, data, chrome, ucbrowser, kodi, iptv, es explorer.. bunch of external apks.. force stop programs on my non rooted device, uncheck tick boxes on settings, closing browser tabs, disable chrome syncs.. after weeks none works..

    Finally I tried Addons Detector, which has a notification monitor feature.. run that for awhile in the background and wait until the pop ups appear.. when i check on the app, it shows one app with two notifications with the same name as the app but the same icons as the google play store pop ups. Tap and kill the app, the pop ups windows died right away.

    The rogue app for me is Screenshot - Screen Capture by iptech mobile that I started using few weeks ago.

    I got the same thing a few days ago. It happens when I click on an email or text message from the lock/notification screen on my Galaxy S 5.

    This is the link I got when chrome pops up and then it goes right to the play store for various games.


    I have searched for ads and ran the VZ Protect and found nothing. McAfee SiteAdvisor did warn me the link has malware.

    Please help!
    I've solved this problem, you have uninstall am app called data manager in the app section, it's not a real sistem app and it couse this problem

    This sounds like what malware bytes calls a "pup" -- potentially unwanted program. It's not a destructive virus per se --at least so it seems--in the sense of destroying or stealing data, it just sort of does its own thing in driving you crazy with inane advertising ploys.

    Has anyone thought to contact the makers of the particular apps that seem most associated with this? It may well be that they bundled something with the apps not realizing how annoyed people were going to be. If they are even the least bit reputable, they may address this by removing the bundled code, or telling you how to get rid of it. They may have thought it was a good idea at first. They may reconsider if they start getting lots of complaints. Assuming there is anything reputable at all here.
    I haven't downloaded Music Paradise Pro, but I'm having the exact same problem - random Google Play games popping up whenever they want. I've u installed the five apps I recently downloaded since the problem started. I did travel to a different country recently, but I doubt that's the problem

    I began getting bombarded w/ the music store popups since mid september. Usually when i unlock my screen; other times randomly. Ive seen much reference to music paradise pro; i installed it 1.5 years ago... i RECENTLY installed both angry birds & tetris(sp). My AV picks up nothing unusual. One of the popups says "click here to download popups blocker " (which i absolutely will not install; seems shady to me). Initially thought malware. Now I suspect virus cuz as I type now my words are scambled & totally misspelled; also inserting spaces. FWIW I was a computer tech 4 > 20 years but this issue has me puzzled. Currently using Samsung keyboard; I'll swap that out with another to start. & I'll check back. My phone is 3 years old & I'm thinking time for a new one...

    In my case, I haven't downloaded any app in years prior to some malware scans yesterday, so that's not it. I was so annoyed by the play store ads that I Uninstalled play store, as well as chrome, and reset Google play service. With no Google Play Store installed, no more pop up ads. WOOT! I know that isn't a solution for everyone, but hey, I'd rather have no way to install apps than to have pop-up ads.

    Well everybody this Play Store app overrides everything I'm doing interrupts watching movies games anyting even being on the phone so now I just uninstall the Play Store app and disabled it so if I have to get apps at the Play Store I just do it from the web browser until they figure out what the hell this little game is with the Play Store people are playing

    I found out how to fix it. You downloaded something that gave a malicious app administrative rights to your phone. You have to go and deactivate the app from administrative rights and then uninstall. Mine did not have an icon for the app which is why is was a ******* **** to find.. but, no more stupid *** play store pop ups. Good luck.
    How exactly did you find the offending app? Having the same issue.

    If it is Google Play popup

    on Samsung S9+

    Go to Settings > Apps > Google Play

    1. Disable Notification
    2. Disable Apps Permission

    Must do 1 and 2, if not the permission granted to Goggle Play will change your setting 1.
