    Hi,
    Recently, I've started getting ads from $%!#$% AdChoices showing up in my apps...i.e. not in any browser, but in the apps themselves. Is there a way to stop this? I don't know what started it, but I've tried Malwarebytes and AdBlock Plus. Neither has fixed the problem. Any suggestions would be most welcome because this is really irritating.

    Thanks!

    The advertising is purposely built into the apps by the developers.
    This is how you get the apps for "free". Most apps of this type will let you buy a subscription or pay a fee to stop the ads.
    If your phone is rooted, you can update your IP hosts file to "not find" the ad servers.

    Were you able to solve the Adchoices problem? Mine started on an android phone - but soon the ads spread to other devices android and iOS). Can't imagine how everything got infected so fast, unless it was somehow my google account, modem or router.

    If anyone has ideas, PLEASE HELP,

    Are you looking to get rid of the ads inside the apps or do you have an adware problem that is serving you ads outside of your apps?
