    Hi

    Just recently my S4 has been showing adverts and information on the lockscreen. With the info I can just swipe to dismiss. But I can't get rid of the adverts unless I click into them.

    I haven't downloaded any strange apps. But almost all have updated as it's been a year or so since I used the phone.

    Can anyone help, because I'd really like to get rid of them.

    Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you have any 3rd party keyboards, launchers, file managers, battery-saver or "RAM-booster" apps installed? Peel Remote is another common culprit.

    Thank you B Diddy, I have just uninstalled Peel Remote update in an attempt to solve the same problem on my Note3. I haven't got a third party keyboard or downloaded any apps recently. I'd been getting unwanted messages on the lock screen for about a week then got my first advert tonight. Very unwelcome so fingers crossed!
