    Hi
    Was browsing on my Samsung s10 with ad blocker on a site about android phones nothing dodgy but then got a pop up about how I won a prize some crap. Got rid of cache but then this morning it came back again
    Only has phone 3 weeks don't want this
    Did factory reset
    What's my options if factory reset doesn't work and b shouldn't my McAfee live scanner or pop up blocker have stopped this?

    Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! It most likely has to do with that site. Legitimate mobile websites can still be plagued by terrible ads like that one. Just avoid that site. Or consider a different browser that might have better popup blocking, like Firefox.

    Are you saying that it's still happening regardless of the website you visit, or is it only happening on certain sites?

    As I mentioned above, the popup has to do with the site you visit, so there's no app to delete.

    Do the popups only show up when you're actively using the browser, or do they show up even when you're doing something else?
