    did u download some app recently...seems like u had a malicious app or some app that is just pushing way too many ads on your phone...i want to say it might be a game app...so try deleting ur recently downloaded app and see if it still happens.

    Also download a antivirus to scan for any malicious app!

    This. I would check and think back to what you've recently installed. If you accidentally got an app that is malicious it could be causing these spontaneous ads.

    Try Addons Detector. It is usually good at finding the culprit. If nothing else, it can provide you a list of your apps as downloaded (and/or updated) per day/time installed. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...addonsdetector

    No, I'm not. I broke down and did a factory reset last night. So far I haven't head any ads pop up. I'm not sure what it was that was doing it

    As you reinstall your apps, do so one or two at a time based on how important they are to you. Once you see the ads start popping up again, if you ever do, that will help narrow down which apps are behaving this way.

    I have also used Lookout Ad Network Detector, which scans all the apps on your device and lets you know which ad networks are part of what apps. This can be very handy in tracking down which ad networks are resident on your phone and which might be popping notifications or misbehaving.

    Do the ads show up in notification tray? If so, Pull down notification tray and long press on ad. It should tell you the app it's coming from

    They were showing up when I would swipe to unlock my phone. Haven't had any since I factory reset last night
