    Welcome to Android Central! The other thread you responded in mentioned popup ads -- are these popup ads you're seeing, or are they actually in-line or in-thread ads? https://forums.androidcentral.com/ge...ml#post6252725

    Who can see the ads -- you, the recipient, or both? Did you type anything in the body of your text that might be vaguely related to the ad?

    I'd send some feedback to Google about this. Open your Android Messages app, tap Menu>Help & Feedback, and tell Google about this, ideally with a screenshot that includes the ads.

    I had the same problem (on a Samsung Galaxy S7) and after downloading and running 4 different anti-virus apps from the Playstore and not finding anything, I realized that it must be a new "feature" of the Samsung Messenger app. It turns out it was. In your Messenger go to the "Settings" then to "More settings". At the bottom there is an option "Show web previews". Turn it off. That eliminated the "Ads". Apparently this "feature" will take a website or a word that it thinks is a website and generate a preview and link to it.
