I think my device got a malware. A lock screen with ads sometimes appear, and I must swipe an area at the bottom of the screen to open the phone. I am in Eastern Europe, some ads are in Slavic languages, and they are seemingly related to travel.

I have seen ads for Lot Air (Polish carrier). I recently went to their site.
Considering my recent surfing activity and the nature of the ads, I guess the malware is connected to airlines active in Eastern Europe.
The lock screen also promotes the app "DU Quick Charger" by claiming it has recharged the phone extra fast during screen off. (!?) It also shows battery level. I have never installed DU Quick Charger. I doubt DU Quick Charger is installed on the phone.
The problem started after installing Ryanair app. The problem is maybe, but not surely, related to this. Uninstalling Ryanair and restarting the phone doesn't remove the occasional appearance of this lock screen. After a while the situation has changed for the worse, now this lock screen appears after EVERY screen off.
I have always used Avast. I am not rooted and only install via Google Play.
What is this? And how do I remove it?
