I may have been infected by adware and I cannot find any help from troubleshooting


AC Question

I was on a streaming-website on my phone with my ad-blocker browser (which apparently turned out to be completely worthless) and got a notification telling me an "android_update_ucid.upd" file was downloaded. I later got a call from a number that I could not find with searching. What do I do?

Welcome to Android Central! Are you actually getting popup ads, or are you worried because you got a call from a number you couldn't identify? What was the call about, or did you not answer it?
