Suddenly, when I swipe my phone to use it the screen goes blank for a period of time then I am presented with an advertisement. I have been using the phone for about 6 months without this annoyance. I have tried downloading an App to circumvent this but it still happens. Is there anything that I can do?

Just checked and there is a mobile version of malwarebytes.

On any Android MBAM and one of the free Norton apps removes adware. ESSET also removes it. Might be worth installing adblock plus
