    So, 2 days ago, a new lock screen "on top of" my regular lock screen "magically appeared" on my Note 4.

    It shows time/date in upper left corner, and a ... menu in the upper right that allows me to turn off speed charging. Then, a % charged indicator, and underneath that, some annoying ad... at the bottom, there is a "slide to unlock", which then goes to my Nova Launcher lock screen, which I have setup with my fingerprint scanner.

    So basically, now I have to go through an additional lock screen and view an annoying ad to get into my phone.

    I have no idea where this came from, and to the best of my recollection, I haven't added any new apps.

    Any idea how to get rid of this?

    Thanks for your help!

    I think when Peel Smart Remote updated that's when I noticed that Speed Charge Screen. I removed Speed Test to be safe as well. That updated too on my M9 😬 I'll keep everyone posted

    As the OP, I'm really surprised at how often this seems to happen to people. The original post was in February, and people are still picking up on it. My original culprit was Go Keyboard (the paid version "forgot" that I paid. When I refreshed it, the ad disappeared.)

    The next was Peel Smart Remote when it happened again.

    The article above was very helpful... it will probably happen again... Thanks, all!

    I found the same thing this morning. I tracked it down to the zcamera, I installed. Uninstalled, and everything back to normal. Hope that helps!

    I followed the steps that UKGandalf suggested, closed all the applications, plugged in the charger, selected the button that lists the apps and in my case it showed PhotoCollage app. Apparently it had a check box in its setting to show rapid charger screen and it was selected. I unchecked the box, it worked for me.

    An annoying "Clean Master Boost" ad screen kept popping up on my new S7 Edge every single time I plugged the charger in. I uninstalled the Z Camera app, which by the way was already installed on my new phone from Best Buy, and now the ad is completely gone.

    Just signed up to announce this happening during a recent app update, culprit was a superuser process, super user being installed via KIngo ROOT.

    I've found the cause. It's the Go Launcher. So essentially if "Go Launcher"dev team said "hey we're going to homescreen you ads in exchange for a free really cool launcher". I would have been ok with that. But they didn't, so I went into "manage applications" and deleted it. Dragging the icon and deleting it that way won't work. I'm new to Android hence my handle so some of this might be redundant for you, my apologies. I still have Nova Launcher which seems ok.
    So you need to Go to Dev Options, Running services and select it, see if Charge locker services is on one of them. Delete the offending app or ask yourself if the ad is worth the free app you're getting, or if they offer a paid version which removes that ad, but question why a developer would sneak that in on the first place. I lost my respect for Go Launcher after this.

    Thanks to all for this thread.
    I've been reading along since I was really getting tired of dealing with (2) lock screens on my HTC 10.
    The one that is supposed to be there and that annoying speed charge screen with the ads.

    Well I figured out that I had the Flash Keyboard on my phone.
    It wasn't being used but it was hiding in the background making ad money for someone out there.
    And some of those ads would lock me out unless I hit install but the always were blocked by the Avast antivirus I loaded early on.
    Avast could never find this little beauty though but this thread helped to get it off of the phone.

    So I'm very happy tonight!

    As I continue to read through the pages of this thread I see more and more apps with this little beauty buried inside.
    So this must be a very profitable venture for everyone involved!
    What a crock!!

    This is now part of ES File Explorer, in addition, it tries to get you to let it scan certain apps. It's SPAM! ES File Explorer used to be nice and non-invasive & non-spamming. Apparently those days are gone.

    Had this issue for a few days, finally drove me insane when I couldn't shut my alarm because ad was swipe to dismiss to get to homescreen. After finding this forum I've determined that it was a 4+ star app I downloaded for passport/licenses as I had just renewed my dl and my temporary was offered as a download.

    I had the exact same thing and same screen. Awesome find for fixing. I just unistalled Zcamera and BAM...that annoying sped charge screen went away. TWO THUMBS UP!!!!!!!!!!
    Just tried everything everyone was posting on every site and THIS is what worked.
    Thank you so much!
    Had no issue with the screen other than the fact that it kept snoozing my alarms.

    I just turned off rapid charger, from the ad screen. Problem solved. I don't know where it came from, but I know it came with the phone.
