My phone has websites popping up every so often and I'm not sure what is going on. I installed Bitdefender to scan for viruses, malware, and adware and it found none. Has anyone run into this?

Which websites? If they're clearly ads, then it's gotta be adware related to one of the 3rd party apps you installed. Do they go away in Safe Mode?

And this is when you're not even using the browser?

You may just have to uninstall apps one by one, starting with your most recently installed apps. This guide might be helpful: Full screen ads. How to find the culprit. - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com.
Yes, even when I'm not using the browser. I went and uninstalled a couple of apps I recently downloaded. So far it hasn't happened again. Odd, I hadn't downloaded anything 3rd party or what I would think would be suspicious. 2 of them were kwgt packs.
