    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone do you have? It sounds like you installed some kind of malware at some point. You'll need to do another factory reset, but follow these steps:

    1. Go to Settings>Backup & Reset, and uncheck Automatically Restore.
    2. Now do the factory reset.
    3. After finishing the setup wizard, go immediately to Google Play Store, swipe in from the left, tap My Apps, and Stop any automatic installations that might occurring.
    4. Now see if the problem persists. If it doesn't, start installing apps one by one, watching carefully to see if the problem recurs. Avoid shady apps like antivirus (unless it's a reputable name like Lookout, Norton, Malwarebytes, AVG, Avast, or Kaspersky), "memory boosters" (which don't help), games that are ripoffs or copies of other popular games, "free" music/movie downloaders, or anything that is remotely pornographic.
