    My phone has been infected with the adware "AdChoices." It's everywhere and inserts itself into every article I read. I downloaded Malwarebytes Antimalware and ran it, but it didn't get rid of it. Anyone have a solution?

    Can you clarify or define "infected", please? AdChoices is a type of advertisement that indicates that an ad that is being displayed was chosen according to your interests. You can opt of out of AdChoices, but you would still see the same quantity (and size) advertisements when browsing, they would simply not be based on your browsing habits.

    It seems that every news article or Internet page I go to has Adchoices ads inserted into them. I never opted in to it, and I would love to know how to opt out.

    Your AdChoices - How interest based advertising finds you

    According to this FAQ, you click on the icon that looks like this (on the corner of the ad):



    This will bring up a menu that lets you opt out of interest based ads. Keep in mind, you'll still see the same number of ads, they just won't be associated with your interests - they'll either be random, or selected based on the content of the page that you're on.

    Hi, I have the same problem but I don't want to "configure" the app, I want to remove it. Do you know how can I do it?
