    I was having this issue on my new 8+. Friends tried to help and I was still being driven crazy with unwanted pop up ads. I finally went in to my settings to manage apps and found the app called Samsung Push Service. I clicked on Force stop and my problem has been solved! Hope this helps others!! Merry Christmas!!
    Thanks Linda, early days, but this seems to work. They have been driving me mad, so fingers crossed.

    I have discovered these ads come from Google as part of the operating system and cannot be turned off. Go to settings Google and ads. Your ad id can be reset but not disabled. How is this legal?

    Yes....stop using Chrome. I don't mean to sound so flippant but chrome is very often chosen by perpetrators because of its popularity. Try samsung browser beta. It has great extensions to help you limit these sorts of "attacks" .

    I use Chrome along with a billion others who do not have this issue.
    Since coming to this forum, almost every problem raised is a user setting issue, and rarely software, and almost never hardware.
    I would bet that it is an app that you have on the phone. I've been spammed myself with apps that lie.
    Boot into safe mode. If you're problem is gone, it's an app issue so start disabling the most recent apps until you find the offender.

    This is good advice. I agree that ain't all ad pop up issues are related to a user installed app.

    I think I figured it out for the ad's dropping down that looks like a round ornament dropping from a string showing apps you don't have I have been deleted all recent apps and I have did all the stuff on the thread and it would stop then come back since update one ad came from zcamera deleted that haven't seen one since will return and keep posted if ads come back

    This is a completely false statement. I've been an Android user for years and have never had any issues with ads.

    I haven't updated to oreo, but that does not look like the stock dialer. So either a dialer or a home screen app is giving you those ads.

    SOLVED!

    I've had the same problem for several weeks.
    It was simple to get rid of, though: Go to where active apps are listed. (On my Samsung Note4 it's pressing the left button.) There you locate the actual ad that has popped up, (NOT Play Store). Press and hold the upper left corner of the ad-tab. This opens the app which causes the problem in App-control. Just delete the app and the problem is gone. (For me it was Video Maker.)

    It is not a Samsung, Android or Play Store problem. It's an app. A factory reset is not necessary and will only work if you do not reinstall the bad app.

    Good luck!

    This fixed my problem on my S8. When the ad popped up, I swiped up from the bottom of my screen and tapped the left button to open the recent apps. Then I held the left corner of the ad and it told me what app the ad was from. Mine was a compass app causing the problem.
