Unpleasant ads on Samsung Siii mini

  Guady 08:08 08 Sep 2013

Do hope someone can help me! I have a Samsung SIII mini and I love it - except that an unpleasant Ad (porn) keeps appearing and asking me to download a "sexy" App. The phone warns that it might cause damage and I cancel it each time - but the Ad has a rather explicit photo which I'd rather not see! Sometimes it seems to come with an extension .apk and other times it looks like a web page - both have the same picture. My question is - can I Block both the web page and the .apk item. It's just unpleasant to see and I'm trying not to look at the phone when anyone's around - just in case the Ad appears. Help please!

Install Avast or Lookout Security - one or the other, not both at once - and have it scan your phone for viruses/malware.

Or Trust ad blocker. This may have appeared when you got a free app from play store.

Trust antivirus will tell you what suspicious apps you may have.

I also turn off Push messages too.

Thanks to you both - very good suggestions.
