    I have tried everything I could to rid the Pixel 3 of pop ups.
    These are the instructions I've found. I can't get them to work. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

    On your Android phone or tablet, open the Chrome app Chrome.
    To the right of the address bar, tap More More and then Settings.
    Under "Advanced," tap Privacy.
    Tap the feature you want to update:

    It is under Site Settings instead of Privacy I think. But mine is already blocked Pop-ups and redirects but somehow I am still getting them on some sites. I don't get them when I was on my Samsung's Chrome browser, only on the Pixel 3.

    What kind of popups? Can you post a screenshot? Are you getting them only when using Chrome or while using a different app?

    They vary. There is no common theme.

    For me, it is a link on Flipboard. I read flipboard news articles daily. They are collections from different sources like LA Times, Reuters, Tech sites, etc... some link will open up the Chrome browser for the full article. But some of them will start a page pop up now in like 3 seconds. It have never done that before on my Samsung Tab E or my LG G4 chrome browser.

    I don't have the option to use "to the right of the address bar" it's missing. I have the latest version of Chrome. What's next.

    Well it is hard for anyone to really help. Just saying "a pop up" with no examples, screenshots, or anything makes it pretty impossible for anyone who isn't standing next to you to realize what you are talking about.

    You'll need to further describe what pop ups you're getting, when you're getting them, what they say, what they look like etc.

    Well, those ads could be pushed by an app that you downloaded or a page that you opened in Chrome. If you don't answer our questions and give us more details it'll be impossible to help you out.

    Most likely they are caused by an app that you downloaded. The usual culprits are cleaners, memory boosters, antivirus, free games, flashlights, photo editors, etc. See this guide.

    In my experience using the Developer Options is the easiest way to find the culprit.

    That is some app you installed causing that.

    These pop-ups are now creating problems by getting in the way of trying to open links and other functions. I did not install any apps that would make this happen. Is there anything else I can do to fix this or is a reset my only option. Thanks for hanging in there.

    You need to identify which app is causing them. That guide can help you, I'd start with the recent apps overview and then try the Developer Options. It can be a bit tedious but there's not much else you can do short of uninstalling apps one by one.

    You can take screenshots of the recent apps and running services and post them here, so we can take a look.

    The screenshots are in this thread. I can't find the developer options. I don't have any strange new apps Installed. They were all installed on my old Samsung galaxy s5. Thanks again for your patience.

    You don't need to have new apps, these ads could have started after an old one was updated from the Play Store, for example.

    Please, read that guide that I linked above, there you can find the instructions for troubleshooting this issue.

    Those are the pop ups, I was asking for the recent apps overview and the running services. In most cases the culprit leaves a record in there so we can identify it.

    Might not be new apps but some app is causing that. That isn't the phone.

    While the ambient display uses minimal power, screensavers are much more hungry. That's why they can only be enabled "While charging" (note: "While docked" refers to a charging dock)
    I had 2 repeated reminders from my old Samsung that came to the Pixel 3. They show up on my screen saver (clock). I don't know how to or modify the reminder. I have checked everything I know. The only thing I found was to use the calendar app but I don't want to clutter up the app. Help.

    Tap the feature you want to update:
    First thing to do: clear your chrome cache.
    Then, uninstall/disable chrome and install another browser.

    I'm using Firefox Focus.

    It seems that the solution was to find and uninstall the correct app that caused the problem.
