    Any flashlight apps on your phone? Some of those are the worst with ads on the screen.

    Does it have any battery booster apps, ES file explorer, or Flash Keyboard?



    Check this list if the phone has it:



    • Amber Weather Widget • ES App Locker • GO apps (of note: GO Weather, GO SMS, GO Keyboard, Next Browser) • Kingo Root • KittyPlay Wallpapers, Ringtones • TouchPal apps (TouchPal makes multiple keyboard apps) • Xender (file transfer app) • Zero Team apps (of note: Z Camera)



    These are all known apps that can put adware your phone and put unnecessary ads on your homescreen

    Application can hide themselves. Not going to announce itself being in plain sight if it's malware. Call it "stealthware" but would show 'something' running Top.

    On my phone it was the Flashlight app I had installed that was doing that issue. It is being caused by one of your apps. I uninstalled and installed a different flashlight app and the issue went away.

    I found the culprit by pressing recents as wspaw suggested above. I had the same pop ups problem and tried removing several apps that were identified as usual suspects, like the flashlight. Malwarbytes was no help. I solved my problem by deleting S Photo Editor that came prebundled on my new Samsung S8 plus. No more pop up ads since I deled that.

    If you press your Recents button on the navigation bar while the ad is playing, you can long press the icon in the top left of that window. It will identify the offending app. You can then uninstall it. FLV Player did this to me about once a day. I finally found this solution in a thread on this forum and it worked.

    That's one app that definitely puts adware. Uninstall ES File Explorer Pro.
