    They seem to be in several apps and are very often hard to find, but when you find the app
    - REPORT IT TO GOOGLE,
    and 1.000's of people will get a better life!
    How to report it directly to Google?
    The only thing that I did was to uninstall Go keyboards and that ads screen is gone. I want to report this app.
    This kind of app devs is unacceptable.

    This is possible on all apps, scroll down In Google Play on the app and there is the text: Report, click on that link and you will end up on the place where to report.
    - Hopefully, it will make Go to become Gone ;-)

    In my case it was Go SMS Pro. Been (was) using it for a long time and never had an issue. Google Play reports it was updated on 1 Apr2016 - I certainly don't see ANY notification in there that this crap was being added! I've taken it out and no more problem ... Now I'm looking for a new text messaging app ... I'll be reporting it as well.

    Go Launcher has always been filled with adware, even just ads for other junk they make. There are so many better launchers available that don't add extra junk you don't want and didn't expect.

    I also found that Kitty Play as the culprit. I still have it installed but, blocked permissions and notifications. Haven't seen the screen since on either my S7 or Note 3.

    For me it was GO Keyboard. Uninstalled one app at a time. Speed Charge disappeared after uninstalling GO Keyboard. Shameful misrepresentation.

    Are these really solutions as I do not have the programs you mention, yet yesterday this started and I have not installed an app in weeks. I deleted all apps that I really do not need and still have the problem. It must have some timed delayed built into some app. Maybe set to so many days from installation? I tried the Stopbadap, Avast, and other cleaners, with no luck. If someone finds out the solution please post the step by step to get rid of this. obviously if there are a lot of people posting here, hundreds of thousands of people must have this problem!
    Uninstalling KittyPlay did it for me!

    Me too! Wow thank you!

    I have a Nexus 6p - The stock camera ap isn't very good. Know of a good one that doesn't have adware? I don't mind paying a few bucks.

    I just got this with the Amber Widget 2.2.3 update on 4/21/16. Either don't update or uninstall; there's no way to turn it off.

    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 had the same problem and found it was the Go keyboards that were causing it. If you're using Go keyboards try uninstalling and check.

    For me the issue was ES App Locker, but the real culprit is one of the Ad Networks that I suspect many of these apps are all using.

    You can see all the Ad Networks your applications use through program called Addons Detector (there may be others but this one worked for me).
    1. Install Addons Detector from Google Play
    2. Run a scan (it will update it's database the first time)
    3. When the scan finishes click the big green Addons button
    4. In the Addons screen select Advertising from the filter drop down


    ES App Locker uses only two Ad Networks AdMob and Facebook Audience, so I suspect one of these is the culprit.

    On my Nexus 9 AdMod is also used by:
    • ES File Explorer
    • PowerPoint
    • Word


    and Facebook Audience is used by:
    • App Cache Cleaner
    • ES File Explorer
    • Scrabble
    • Spider


    However, at the moment, uninstalling ES App Locker did the trick even though the other apps above also use the same ad networks. It's possible that there are different subscription options that app developers can select from when they use the networks which may explain why some apps using these ad networks cause the problem and others do not (at least for now). Or possible it's something that this new behaviour is getting rolled out by the ad network gradually across all the apps using it.

    Either way I'd be interested to hear what ad networks the other programs that people have identified as causing this same issue use.

    Hope this helps,
    Tim

    Go Keyboard got me with the Speed Charge lock screen also. I guess no Go products can be trusted any longer.

    I noticed this a few days ago on my mom's Note4 when it was charging. Culprit was GoSMS. Uninstalled it and the lock adware screen went away. Now I installed Textra on her phone to use instead.

    Yep it was GOSMS Pro for me as well. An app that I have been using for years with no issues. Not only is that screen annoying but also dangerous as it would disable my alarm which is a very strange behavior.

    Go Keyboard was the culprit for me. I'd even pay for Go to make their adware go away but they don't seem to offer that option.

    I had this one too. Deleted several apps. Nothing worked till I deleted what I always thought was a GREAT app. ADVAST! The screen went away. Now..who knows, it might come back...but for now it is gone.
