    I do not have clean master or anything like that installed on my phone. This is all new crap provided by AppLock Pro that I have no idea where it came from.

    Anyone else with Verizon see this AppLock Pro on their Note 7?
    I have Verizon Note7 and never seen this. It's definitely coming from an app or game. My mother in law gets this lockscreen junk all the time on her S6 since I think she clicks on every ad she sees when playing candy crush and games like that and I have to clean all this similar stuff off her phone.

    It was an app call AppLock Pro and I don't remember seeing this before on my phone.

    I was able to uninstall it and pray it's gone. I can't believe Verizon would put that crap on me.
    I was noticing adds as well on my phone, that I never had before. I got rid of ES File Explorer. Used to be a good app, now it seems to want to intrude on your life. I also noticed that App Lock app and immediately uninstalled it. As well, Dignite was already gone from my phone so who knows how long this was on and never noticed it.

    I wish Verizon would cut the crap.

    This is so strange because I'm on Verizon and I do NOT have this "AppLock Pro". I did notice that I had installed one of the games (Mobile Strike, I think) and somehow the darn thing fired up and was trying to do some stuff. And I've seen a few things I've opened...websites and apps, and there's a banner ad that isn't there initially and then it pops up (so maybe it's a pop up ad) and by then I'm touching the screen to navigate the site or app...I've inadvertently opened a couple of ads because they put the x in a non-intuitive place, or a link in the place you'd expect the x. I'm so annoyed by ads and the sneakiness they have resorted to that now I REFUSE to look, buy or entertain them AT ALL. Just on principle. Might be the best damn [fill in the blank] EVER...they won't be getting my money through their ad! And 99% not at all (I have yet to buy something from an ad...but there's always that first time I suppose).

    Go to the Samsung app store to remove it. It is a built in app that gets automatically updated.

    Not on mine. Hopefully it doesn't show up.

    I've had and use ES Explorer for years, and don't know what it is but have that DT Ignite enabled, and never have that show up. That would make me very upset.

    Don't know if it was ES File but I had to uninstall it because I would keep getting 20-40 errors. Would try to fix it and clean it but the next day I would get errors again. Using Astro and no errors now...

    US carriers seem to behave as if they're in a third world country lol. Not only do they have higher prices but they do other dodgy things to increase revenues, and there's no real outrage at it.

    You have auto update Galaxy apps turned off, right? It's sounding a bit like it could have been pushed from Samsung Galaxy store and not Verizon. I have auto update turned off in both stores as well as DT Ignites DISabled, and I have ES File Explorer installed, and I am not seeing this.

    I only have one app on my replacement Note 7 that isn't your standard Facebook/Netflix/HBO Now type app and that is Go Weather EX. So if Applock Pro wasn't on my device out of the box, it came from that app or the Galaxy Store.

    This lock screen crap ad has been installed from a number of apps. For me it was "Photo Editor Pro" by Zentertain on my prior Note 5. One of my sons had it on his S7E from GoSMS. Read thru the following topic in the Note 4 forum - has many of the offending apps listed:

    I had a similar problem in February from a post I submitted - this article really helped... I am quoting from that post below...

    Here is a good article on how to track the app putting the ads there.
