    I can't figure out how to stop incoming text messages from popping up on the screen. There use to be an option to turn off pop up messages in the app settings but now it's gone. Very annoying

    There should be a toggle switch next to pop up display.... Does turning that off help?

    Now when i get a text message the lock screen turns on for a couple of seconds. Is there a way to disable that?

    I think my pop up problem is different, and I'm beginning to suspect it can't be fixed. The pop ups that are really bothering me are when I'm reading a news story or interview and everything stops as an ad covers the screen. Most have an X so you can exit, but lately I've had some that I can't get out of without completely exiting the story and starting over when it happens again. And then there are the intruders who claim 1. That you've won something or 2. You have a terrible virus. Backing out of these things burns me up and once you're clear and try the article again, the whole scenario is repeated to the point that I can't read the article. These aren't app ads and I have virus protection. Is there anything I can do?
