    Welcome to Android Central! It would help if you could post some screenshots, or describe these ads in more detail. Are they appearing in the Notification Bar at the top of the screen? Are they pop up windows? Do they occur when you're browsing the web using Chrome or another browser?

    If they're in the Notifications, swipe down the shade and long-press the ad. Then tap App Info when it appears. That should tell you what app is responsible for the notification.
    Well for example when im on my home screen or any app at all, every 1 minute an ad will pop up even when im on my phone home screen and no app is opened. This just started today..

    Welcome to Android Central! You most likely installed adware unwittingly, alongside some other app. Try uninstalling apps one by one until the problem goes away.

    I found a solution, might not work for all cases, it did for mine though. My case was that, a window would open and subsequently it would be redirected to the Play Store featuring some game, whenever i unlock my phone. When i opened up Recent Apps, it wouldn't show a name as opposed to other normal apps. After searching numerous apps for a solution, i found this app called 'Perfect Uninstaller', it helps you search all the detectable add-ons and apps, from there i found a add-on/app being nameless, which is obviously the source of my annoying pop-ups. I deleted it and everything went back to normal.

    A lot of graphics commercials over whole screen: after the call, while on internet, after unlocking the screen
    Information in the lower left corner "Ads by StartApp".
    I could deinstall the programs because I have over 150 programs installed.

    I have installed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (black/blue icon)
    It found the following programs with malware:
    Lost Android
    Learn to Draw Pets
    Sex Statistics
    After deinstalling these 6 programs the adds stoped apearing (one of these programs was pop-uping the comercials).

    I was stuck on iOS for 2 years, and couldn't wait to get back to Android. Got a Google Pixel. I installed Facebook, Messenger, and Paypal. I had ads popping up on day 1 of owning the phone. I removed everything I downloaded, and it made no difference. Reset the phone, and it made no difference. Day 2 I returned the phone.

    Shame. I don't like the iPhone much at all, but at least I don't get pop-ups on my home screen. Oh, and someone needs to make a decent music player for Android too.

    I had this problem back a few months ago. For me, it was due to the overpiling of cache data. I was generally curious and decided to install some weird launchers and apps, and about a week after doing so i started gettting ads on the home screen. Deleted the launchers and weird apps to see if the ads would go away, and they didnt. But when i went into my settings and cleared all of the app cache, i no longer got ads on my home screen. Even when you uninstall the culprit app, cache data folders from that app remain in your storage until you clear them out completely. Overtime, if you dont clear the cache, the files could get corrupted. My guess is the leftover junk files and cache from the launcher became over piled and corrupted, so thats how i started getting ads on my home screen. App ad cache gets saved too, so my suggestion here is to keep your cache files cleaned, especially after deleting apps. To do this, go to Settings>Storage>Internal Sorage> scroll down to Cache and tap it. Confirm you want cache from all apps deleted. This should clear things up if the ads have to do with leftover and possibly corrupted junk files.

    For those that seems not to get rid of this problem, use zemana Mobile Antivirus or Mobile Security And Antivirus by ESET. This two are superb and will help get rid of the malware as the first solved my problem. [link removed by Mod]

    I had the same type of ads as Arustyfan above. It was the ES File Explorer File Manager app. Open the app, click on the menu icon, scroll down to "Smart Charge" & turn it off. The Smart Charge feature says "Smart Charge - Display the current charging status, storage, and new files, including sponsored content" The key is "sponsored content" when you turn the Smart Charge feature off in the ES File Explorer app the annoying ads, or "sponsored content" that display on the unlock screen stop displaying. I think the Smart Charge feature is turned on by default, probably because it is a free app. In fact if you look in Google Paystore it says it contains ads. You can install the app & turn the annoying ads off though.

    If you're signed into your Google account
    1. go to 'Ads Settings'
    2. Click or tap the slider next to 'Ads Personalisation'
    3. Doing this will turn it off.

    This will solve your problem as it opts you out over Google Ads Services (eg. search ads) and around 2 million + websites and apps that partner with Google to show ads!

    I had the exact same problem and this solved it straight away! I had tried apps that search for Push ads through apps on my phone but they didn't find it. I also did the going through my recent apps one by one and turning off notifications which didn't work and then uninstalling them one by one and still didn't solve it. It was sadly only once I had deleted some loved apps that i found out via Google search about Ads Personalisation opt out.
    I'm sure this will solve your problem with unwanted ads.

    I have the same problem. Check out DAA. Digital Advertising Alliance. I removed 132 advertisers! I hope this works.
