    Hello. I'm looking for help to fix my HTC One please. Whenever I click a link in my Twitter app, I end up at a Linkbucks page. Does anyone have any experience of this and are you able to advise me of a fix please? Thank you!

    What browser are you using?

    Do a factory reset and quit sideloading apps.

    Standard Android browser. If I do a factory reset there's hours of work getting my phone back to how I like it. Surely there's a fix? What does sideloading mean in regard to apps? I only get them from the Play Store.
    Thanks in advance.

    Check the browser settings, see if it changed anything. Look for weird apps and such in the application settings. Otherwise, use Chrome. Still not satisfied? Factory reset? And if that doesn't work, I always take phone donations. :rolleyes:

    If you don't install 3rd party apps from outside the Play Store (sideloading), then you somehow let those programs overtake your phone.

    Try these - they're reputable. You should be able to identify and uninstall the apps causing the problems.

    Close the google chrome app, go to settings and select Google Chrome.

    Force stop, then clear cache and clear data..
    This worked for me

    Thanks for your help everyone. I left it for a month and it no longer happens. Maybe an update fixed it? Thanks.
