    Since the last update, I get these full screen popups that disrupt data entry, typing, etc. I have totally enjoyed this unit for it's portability, for it's ability to save data and access it from any unit at any location. But quite frankly the popups are blankety blank annoying. I've cleared my cache, emptied cookies -- restarted -- please let me know if you have any other suggestions for getting rid of this super annoyance. And yes, I have popups turned off. Thanks so much for any suggestions.

    Welcome to Android Central! Popup ads? The browser setting for popups doesn't get rid of all of them. Have you tried installing an ad-blocking extension, like uBlock Origin?

    Thank you -- I will try that -- it is SO annoying!! Question, though, I don't get them on my Android phone -- only on my Chromebook. Is there a reason for that?

    I don't know the technical details, but I think popup ads can target mobile and desktop browsers differently. It depends on the site you visit.
