    OK, so this is very annoying! Just yesterday, random spam has been popping up on the screen. It happened after hanging up the phone. It just happened after unplugging the charger. The phone goes to spam websites via Chrome. Anyone else have this?! Very annoying.

    Do you still have DT IGnite installed? I'd uninstall it if I were you. Its a known problem for automatically loading games and who knows what on your phone. It is one you can fully uninstall, along with the 4-5 games that were also preloaded from it.

    FYI, I have not seen any of this.

    I can't fully uninstall DT Ignite either, but I do have it disabled. I was also reading this morning about Adware apps installing themselves into the root systems of phones. Coming from apps downloaded from 3rd party websites.

    I was wondering what it was myself...thanks for the heads up. It is now disabled.

    There is a good app you can use to detect and find adware apps, its ad-network scanner by lookout.

    Have you installed any apps from 3rd party sites? That's almost the only way to get malware on Android. The other thing I've seen is browser stuff, which just requires clearing out the browser (cache, etc). I've seen that on iOS and Android both.

    Seems this is a common problem. This is a reply from another forum:

    I finally found the solution!!

    This irritated me so much I actually came back to all the forums and registered so that I could help other people fix this. (P.S. I never leave comments on these forums so you must know how much this stupid popup thing annoyed me that I actually come back and registered)

    It is a malicious app that is causing it. In my case it was "MP3 Music Download Best". Someone else found it was "Simple Mp3 Downloader". It could be potentially be almost any app though.

    The app that I used to find the malicious app is called "Ad Clean & Antivirus by StopBadApp Mobile Security". It has great reviews on Google Play as well.

    Install this app and let it scan your device and it will find the app that is causing your problem.

    Let me know if this sorts out your problem. This popup thing has been annoying me for weeks and I would like to know if this helped anyone else.

    Good luck!

    OK, no third party apps downloaded. Phone just a week old. When opening apps like Tapatalk or Google Photos, I'm getting spam full page pop ups. When "minimizing" I see that it's something called Upgrade Page. See attached screenshots. I can't stand this. Looked online but can't find solutions that work. Ad detectors found nothing! Help greatly appreciated.Weird pop ups just started!-uploadfromtaptalk1447003838326.jpgWeird pop ups just started!-uploadfromtaptalk1447003890823.jpgWeird pop ups just started!-uploadfromtaptalk1447003908040.jpg

    You now have 2 threads devoted to the same thing. Why? I would suggest factory reset to see if it eliminates the problem.

    Just looking for some help buddy that's all. And yes factory data reset is an option. Albeit for me a last resort and for a one week old phone, this is frustrating none the least, I'm sure you'd agree....no?

    I agree generally the last resort for sure, but because it's only a week old and you just started setting everything up, I see it as more painless now than later on. This also seems very isolated to me since nobody else is apparently experiencing the same thing. It's very strange that you would have gotten some sort of Malware so fast, but it's obvious you have, so if I were in your position, I think I'd just do it now. But I can empathize with your frustration and would probably be lighting up the forums if I were in your shoes. I just don't want others to think this is somehow a bug native to the phone because it seems like this has nothing inherently to do with the Turbo 2.

    Agreed and thanks. I'm always so careful and solely use Google Play for downloads. Trying to figure this out. Thanks again for understanding!

    Nothing like that for me. Wonder if it came from an app you have installed?

    If it did I wish there was an easy way to rule out the suspect app!
