    I updated my samsung S8+ and now I have 2 lock screens. You don't even have to put the password in to unlock sometimes. The new one also has ads pop up. I've went into display, wallpaper, security trying to get the new one to disappear. I don't know how to get rid of it. I read about disabling the peel remote app but I don't even have that on my phone.

    Thanks!

    That's an ad from an app you installed. Once you figure out what app it is and uninstall it that should go away.

    Do you know how to get this screen to go so I only have the original lock screen?

    What did you install? And seems unlikely an Android update would have done this.

    Carrier model bought from, etc.

    Couple ways to backup. But then strongly consider a factory refresh.

    You have to figure out what app you installed and uninstall it to get rid of the screen.

    What was the name of the app that you uninstalled? I am keeping a running list of ad/adware producing apps

    You have to uninstall recently downloaded apps to figure out which one it is that's causing the issue.
