    Hi! I faced the same problem but I was able to successfully resolve it. I will share with you the nature of my problem and it's solution while keeping in mind the fact that there could be several reasons behind this problem and other users may need to resort to different methods.
    Whenever I unlocked my screen while my data was switched on, a blank page would automatically start up and eventually lead to to a page in playstoreSo I tried these methods and found out which app was causing the problem -
    1. As soon as soon as the app started after unlocking I minimized it and sought to identify the app by it's name. However, there was nothing but white minimized screen. In other words, the app seemed to have no name and therefore it couldn't be identified. This failed for me;
    2. Then I checked the list of all the recently downloaded apks from my browser and was able to identify which one of them was installed but was not listed under Settings->apps-> downloaded. I did this by clicking on all the apps one after another. If they're not installed there would the usual installation message. If they're already installed then you would get the message "would you like to install an update to this existing...". On finding apps that were already installed, I checked the apps list in my phone to find those names. Finally, I came across an installed app which was not listed. The app package had no icon though it had a download package name "DARK-SWORD-ANDROID-APK-HACK-MOD-DOWNLOAD-8742.apk". On finding this, I checked the list of installed apps in my ES file explorer (because I knew that the app was not listed under settings>apps). As I scrolled down to the end I found an app that had blank icon with blank title. I uninstalled it and, voila! The problem is gone.
    Thank you so much!

    Okay so if thats happening all you need to do is go to

    Find secerity
    Then go to phone adminastration
    Click on the blank app or the app that should be there and disabble it

    After that go to your settings then apps scroll over to all click on the one you dissabled and uninstal it

    Its a big stress relief and very easy to do

    What worked for me was I had es file Explorer. When I went into that there was a spot under apps that had no picture at all but clearly had an app there. I deleted that and it stopped.

    Go to your ap manager and uninstall the app without name only blank ...
    I faced the same problem and when I uninstalled the app without name I solved this problem
