I know that others have complained about the same thing, but I have looked all over for this particular app and I cannot find which one may have caused the issue.


When I turn on my phone, I am greeted by some sort of weather app that has an ad and some writing in a language I do not know.

More info:

  • I have not downloaded any apps in the last week
  • I have a google pixel (not rooted)
  • It starts every time I plug my phone in
  • This continues to happen about half an hour after the phone has been unplugged

I think the lock screen App itself is providing Ads. Check for ES File explorer settings it may provide ads sometimes.
