    That pops up mulitiple times a day when I unlock my phone and try to do anything, like going into my text messages or calendar or Facebook etc. My phone vibrates then opens Chrome and the websites these "warnings" come from are androidmax.mobi and findforfun.com usually. Why would it be dong this? How can I get it to stop?

    Sounds like you got an app with adware/malware. Try running an Ad Network detector app or Antivirus to see if they can detect which app is pushing these nasty ads onto your phone. (I usually go for Lookout's Ad Network detector app).

    Found this forum from Googling the same problem. It's very obnoxious when it pops up. Tried running anti-virus and the ad network detector app and still have the problem.

    Any app in particular that you downloaded that might have caused the issue? A specific site, maybe?

    I have the exact same problem. However I first noticed it on my S3 about 6 weeks ago, before I switched to my new S6. It also started about the same time when Play Store would suddenly open up to install an app (there are about 4 or 5 named apps in the rotation). I figured it must be something common to both phones but I have not downloaded a new app in quite some time. So then I was thinking that maybe it had to do something with an app after an update. Good luck there since almost all apps are constantly updating it could be one of many, many apps. I have not visited any questionable websites on the new S6. The popup starts with phone, messages, calendar, or just when I swipe the screen.
