    I have Moto G XT1068 and using a Crome for Android with Wifi.

    This issue just appeared yesterday, i was surfing the web and i noticed that i am redirected automatically as soon as the page is loaded. I think that this redirect happens only where Google Ads are placed but I don't get Redirected on Crome on a PC (no adblocker).

    This is my redirect series:

    Website -> ad.adsmatte.com -> youradexacange.com -> Install Opera Browser [AD]

    The most insteresting part is that when i run that website through Opera Browser Redirect doesn't occur.

    I scanned it Through Malwarebytes and many other adware removal tools but all invain!
    I also tried rebooting in safe mode still no luck!
    I also checked my Router as well as my Adnroid DNS is set to Google DNS
    [I have rooted device with official fimware of Android 5.0.2 ]

    Any help will be highly appericiated.

    Mmm...that's odd.. And you say no adware detectors seem to find anything malicious? Did you install any apps recently? Or have you tried disabling Opera to see if maybe that's what's sending the ads? What about rebooting in Safe Mode (not sure if you can do that on a rooted or modified ROM though, I'm not savvy on those system-tinkering matters).

    I uninstalled all apps recently but now its happening on my another android device too which has no downloaded apps just preinstalled apps. I reset my router still happening but not on PC. I rebooted into safe mode but no luck.Uninstalled Opera still the same.

    You might try "addons detector" - from play store. Recommended on Malwarebytes Forums. The bad guys have started to insert addons on existing apps as well as including on downloaded apps according to mb. forums.

    I have not used either, just downloaded. Can see your problem. - Open app, go to "help" & follow directions.

    This sounds like a variation of this:


    Perhaps it is app-specific.....but in any event, I thought I'd post it for whatever help it might be.

    Does this only happen on WiFi? If so, it might be the network pushing the ads rather than something on your phone...

    I also suffered the same problem last month on my MOTO G and PC. Ads Matte is a nasty adware. It actually sticks to your IP address and as your phone also uses the IP adress to connect to the internet Adsmatte finds a way into your phone.Actually there is only one solution and that is to change your IP address by asking your ISP or apply for a new internet connection.
