Advertisements

Okay thanks. Well at the bottom of each advertisement is says in small print 'special-offers.online'.

Does this help at all, or can I use this to find out where they are coming from anyway?

Are you watching porn or surfing dating websites? Ads are usually related to someone's browsing history...

I wanted to watch the movie Ran (1985), and had to go a site that had it to watch it. I feel it was from this site, cause it started after this, now that I think about it.

There is antivirus/antimalware software for Android phones. When I used Android, I kept this app on my phone. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...smsec&hl=en_US

Okay thanks, I'll get that. But as far as this software goes that is already on the phone, how do I get it off? It's not an app, so now what?

It's probably an app that does something else that's causing the issue, so you simply remove that app. The antimalware app will help you identify which app to remove.

Okay thanks, well I cannot find the app. In my phone the only place I know to search for apps is 'galaxy apps', but I'm guessing this is not a galaxy app that would be in their officially. Is there another place on the phone an unwanted app would be?

Post a screenshot of all your apps on your phone...
You need to touch the app icon to see all the apps on your phone. On this pic is the icon far right (with the 9 grey dots)
Spoiler


BTW: I have Samsung and Android Play Store app... Not a problem. You can download Android apps to your phone.
