    Hi folks.

    This is my first week with the Note 5 (Verizon). I installed the same apps I've been using on my Moto X 2014, yet I see a behavior on the Note 5 that I did not see on my Moto X 2014 ... something I prefer to call 'hijack advertising' which REALLY pisses me off. hehehe.

    Basically, I'm seeing the Play Store app open up to a random app listing (junk); thus, my phone is being hijacked, imho. I can't figure out what is triggering it.

    I would suspect the free MyFitnessPal app, but that same app never did any such thing on my Moto X.

    Is there something pre-loaded on the Note 5 that makes this happen? Any way to kill it?

    Thank you.

    Nevermind. I accidentally had the free version of Run with Map My Run installed - they use hijack advertising methods.
