    For months now, I've periodically been annoyed by these full screen pop ups which seem to present themselves when starting different apps on my MOTO Z Force. They seem to be relevant to things I've looked at on my desktop. I have restricted pop ups and app privileges with no success. Since I typically run CHROME on all of my devices, I even tried to start using Firefox on my MOTO, also with no luck. These are 'Adchoice' full screen ads so I think it has something to do with Chrome or a recent OS update, but it happens maybe once a day so its difficult to isolate.

    I'd be forever grateful for any ideas!!!!

    Thanks.

    Did they start after installing an app?

    I thought so at first, but then I removed all recently installed and tightened app permissions to disallow popups and it continued. The weird thing is that they are relevant - for example, if I view something on Amazon from my desktop, that item later leads to a full screen pop up from Amazon on my phone. The pop up is from AdChoices which is somehow related to Google

    If you were on Verizon, I would have advice for you but on AT&T I don't.

    Im with VERIZON, I had the Samsung s6 now I have the s8. Now for 1 month.
    The excuse they give me is..
    The s8 programming lets the ads in and theres no stopping them, we cant block them. See, the carriers get a kick back$.. from having them.
    Ive tried everything..from different ad blockers to having 5+ more. Nothing works.
    I even get a full page ad while playing my 1(1) and only game I've played for 5 years still only get popup ads on the s8 from the moment of activation. Im ready to sell this s8 and go back to my samsung s6 edge.
    My husband also has upgraded and neither of us ever got 1 popup until these blasted s8s.
    So, you say you have a answer for verizon.
    Before you say..
    I want you to know, ive been with carriers from the day cell one came out.
    I was a cooperate seller.. stayed from the day verizon bought put.. before cell one merged with Nynex.. worked in cooperate with them, no the pjones from as far back as the brick, back and old Motorola flip.
    Im experienced inside and outside of phones except these..
    So.. as per the Samsung tech chat, i get live help, it is as is.
    IF YOU KNOW HOW TO STOP THEM, I'm so excited to hear.
    The dictionary is crap, the typing has bugs, ect.
    A very poor graded phone.

    I was beginning to think that it may be related to the OS that the manufacturers load on to their phones, or worse something in the Android Kernal allowing these ads through. If so, this is VERY BAD NEWS! I'm a long time Android user, but if this is the trend, it may force me to go with an iPhone, as much as I'd hate to!

    I don't think it's the phone, those are normally associated with an app that has been installed
