    Phone: Galaxy S4 Sprint.

    Issue: For the past couple of days, I keep receiving a message (text and image) warning me about some program/website/etc that may be compromising my security/identity. However, it doesn't identify what application it is targeting. Nor is there anything I see which tells me what program it is. I can never see the full message as it is too large for my screen. Even when I move around, I still can't decipher full sentences.

    Additional Information:

    1. OCCURRENCE: Intermittent- 5x times a day.

    2. LINKS: There doesn't seem to be any links by pressing anywhere on the notice.

    3. SCREENSHOT: View at the following link:


    4. ADDONS DETECTOR: I installed "Addons Detector" and ran the scan. If I interpret the results properly, I don't notice anything suspicious. The results file can be viewed at the following link:

    Welcome to Android Central! That's almost certainly some kind of scareware popup ad. Does it only occur while browsing, or do you also see it when you're doing something else on the homescreen or within a non-browser app?
