    Help! I am already under attack via the built in Samsung Browser. Samsung Browser is getting hijacked by full page spam and phishing preventing me from using the internet at all. What is the best way to defend my Note 7 and still use it?

    You probably either visited a less reputable sites or it came from an app that you installed. I would try to clear cache and app data on the internet app as a start

    Phone Arena is a mess of a site, from the viruses/spam to the clickbait articles and Apple biased reviewers.

    I cleared the History. How do you clear the cache and data on the Samsung Browser app?

    If you don't mind me asking but what does it say? When i get on this site I get this crap a lot saying congratulations you've been chosen for a free iPhone etc. I have to close the site and start over again. Very annoying.

    In the Galaxy App Store you can install an ad blocking extension. I use Crystal personally.

    You go into the Application manager inside the settings app. Scroll down to Internet and go from there.

    I get that one too and Congratulations you have won $1000 gift certificate from Walmart.

    Some of the sites that show up are:
    - ad.lkqd.net
    - ads.avocet.io
    - bh.contestweb.com

    Is there a specific Blocker I need to download?

    Sorry I skipped a step. When you click on Internet in Application Manager, click on storage. That's where you clear chache and data. Sorry.

    It's strange, I've had this issue as well. Almost any website I go to, I get a redirect to some scam advertisement. The only thing I've done that might be somewhat to blame is click on a Facebook news article from a page I've never heard of.

    Crystal looks good and it doesn't step on Verizon Support & Protect App.

    Honestly I would like to know that answer too cause it's really sad when you can't enjoy this site when we get this crap. I get it once in a blue moon on other sites but i get it here a lot. I have got the $1,000 gift certificate YET lol.

    Haha! Considering they make their money off search and advertising I guess it's understandable somewhat. I don't really like Chrome anyway though.
