    Hey! I am a new user on Android Central. Me got a new Samsung Galaxy S6 and my dad got a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. When i go to certain sites on my phone, a Google Play ad saying me to install a message app by Google but i don't know this message app. It appears in full site screen (see image #1) and even in another site and become many same ads (see image #2). How to block these ads?

    Help me now! Seeing new Google Messages ad by Google Play. I just use the SMS app associated on my phone to send messages, not Google Messages!

    Welcome to Android Central! Some websites have pretty aggressive popup ads. I generally recommend avoiding those sites, because I don't think a site that thinks it's ok to allow such intrusive ads should get my traffic. Otherwise, you could use a 3rd party browser that has more robust ad-blocking, like Firefox or Brave.

    My understanding is that Samsung's own Internet browser has good ad blocking as well, but that might only be on more recent Samsung phones. Which browser are you using?

    Ok, my previous recommendations still stand.
