Hello all,

Recently, while randomly browsing the web, I received a weird popup asking me if I want to speed up my phone. It hasn't been all the sites, just a few (thegloss.com and myfitnesspal.com), but enough to make me believe it is not the site but perhaps something resident on my phone. I've searched via google and on this forum and it doesn't seem like anyone else (except ONE) has encountered this issue. I have a habit of mostly buying my apps and don't really download free games much. I've also checked all the stuff I've downloaded and/or purchased to see if anyone else has the same issue as me. Has anyone else seen this and did you figure out what may be causing this? I've also installed Lookout Ad Network Detector, AirPush detector and Airpush Permanent Opt-Out. I've ran my antivirus. And I can't figure out what is causing this. Thoughts?

It's just a pop up ad, ignore it by hitting the back button.

No problem, you can look on the Web and sideload an ad blocker (google has banned them from the play store), there are several out there, but ad blocker seems to be the most popular.
