    So I accidentally clicked a Chomp Ad while exiting the app. I immediately went back. Could it have downloaded an Android virus?

    I highly doubt it. You can download an antivirus from the play store to scan your phone if you don't feel comfortable.

    Comodo: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...modo.pimsecure

    AVG: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=com.antivirus

    Avast: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...mobilesecurity

    I have Malwarebytes installed on my phone. It came up clean. I think I'm fine then.

    Malwarebytes is for Anti-Malware though.

    Chomp..As in the SMS app Chomp? because i use it instead of my stock messenger so I dont think it has any viruses. Also clicking an Ad shouldnt download a virus unless it says "downloading file" so you're worrying too much. Just an Ad, you're safe.
