  Sealand1 22:41 17 Jan 2019

I have random pop ups on my phone. They mostly happen on the main screen. I did a factory reset and they are still here but they were not here when I got my phone. Is it adware? I have also had lots of __is not responding since getting the pop ups. My phone is a Moto c. Also all the pop ups lead to a site called priceloose. Please help.

Thank you

Its simple if your phone has adware pop up ads will show up just like that with no particular app opened

Just simply install Malwarebytes, run it and it will tell you if you have anything suspicious in your phone. If it finds it, so delete it ASAP. and keep Malwarebytes.
