    Maybe an app is doing it. I know someone here had 2 alarm clock and the one that wasn't the stock alarm clock was doing it. Maybe check your apps.

    Anything other than the official "clock" by Samsung can do this. Multiple apps have made it happen, although the 2nd alarm clock app comes stock on the note 8 and removing it fixed it for me.

    Definitely the app. Battery monitor and flashlight apps are not really needed anymore, and most are chock full of ads.

    I removed Cooler Master and my Flashlight app and it seems like the charging screen ads are gone. my guess is it was the flashlight.
    Thanks

    always best, if you find apps you like, to test for use and then buy to avoid ads, unless you are rooted.

    It wasn't Beacon. I think it was Quark.

    I have GoSMS on my work phone, and that has ads on the charging screen. Drives me nuts, but that phone doesn't let me customize ringtones for individual contacts, so I needed to go third party.

    Even if there exists a phone that doesn't let you do give individual contacts their own message tone natively, there are several apps that do so without putting lockscreen ads, like Textra, Yaata, ChompSMS, Evolve, etc.

    Happened to my wife last week. Just click on the 3 dots in the upper right and you will find an option to remove the lockscreen ads. Hers was caused by a flashlight app but there are several apps that cause that to happen.

    Mine just started to have ads too. I think it was the Airbrush app. So I uninstalled it and so far so good.
