    Hi, I think I've pressed allow instead of block on a pop up. Now I can't do anything without a pop up opening every few minutes! Driving me crazy! Is there a way to revoke all permissions? Or find out how to remove the one causing the problem?
    I've got a Samsung S9

    Open Chrome, tap Menu>Settings>Site Settings>Pop-ups and Redirects, and make sure that toggle is turned OFF.

    Try going to Settings>Apps, select your browser, then Storage, then Clear Cache/Clear Data. If you're using Chrome, then also open Chrome on your computer, go to its Privacy settings, and clear your browsing history and cookies "from the beginning of time." Now see if it persists.

    I did both of those & still got pop ups. Is there a way to see what pages I've clicked allow on or block so I can get rid of some? Appreciate the help :-)

    Are the popups only occurring while you visit certain sites, or do they happen even with mainstream sites like cnn.com?

    It happens when I'm not doing anything at all so I don't think it matters what I'm doing

    So they actually happen when you're not even using the browser? If so, see this guide: https://forums.androidcentral.com/am...d-culprit.html
