Pressed the onscreen button on my s6 edge this afternoon and a strange new display swipe screen is showing up - picture included. I have no idea where this came from and I have to swipe it just to get to my pin lock. I've checked my apps, my settings, my locked screen, I've disabled some of the apps I thought it could've been but to no avail. Does this look familiar to anyone, and if so how do I get rid of it? It's eating up my battery life.
Looking around, this reddit comment pointed me in the right direction. Using ES Task Manager I found all apps with a name containing "photo", and all were recently updated.
Photo Collage Editor was the culprit.
So if you don't like random ads forced on you, don't install this app:
I'm sure there's plenty of other apps that do collages, and are made by slightly more polite people.. I'm sure I'll find out when I need to make a collage again, but I'm not using this app ever again.
EDIT This app, by the same developer ("Zentertain"), is doing the same thing:
This just happened to me and it was an ab workout app. My advice would be to try to delete the most recent app you downloaded before you noticed it. From the looks of it, multiple apps do this.
It was picsart doing this to my device. Removed app and it's gone. It was annoying.
