I installed a game, and I am getting some unwanted advertisements despite already restricting background data for that app.

These advertisements do have a cancel button, but that does not work. I have to click on them forcefully and they will download something. After that, it will display a page with the application details and option "OK" and "Cancel". On canceling further, the ad dismisses.

In the end, I uninstalled the game, but is there any way to cancel such advertisement or completely block them?


Assuming these are what is called "Push Ads", they are coming from an app you installed, most likely a "free" game... Install Add-ons Detector and look at what apps are using push ads and remove them. I would also post a review in the app store the app was from stating the app uses push ads for the benefit of others.
