Every time I unlock my phone (yu yunicorn | marshmallow), ad pops up, covering the whole screen, ads also pop ups when I am using any app and it also uses chrome to direct to ads, its poping up when I am writing this, is there a way to stop these ads ?( disabling the internet is one way, I think, but I want to be connected all times)

  • Use Lucky Patcher. – iBug Sep 5 '17 at 11:11
  • @iBug Lucky Patcher is quite tricky to use, if the goal is removing ads. Won't something such as AdAway be equally effective or better? – Death Mask Salesman Sep 5 '17 at 11:36
  • @DeathMaskSalesman It can easily remove most common ads by adding 60k+ lines in the hosts file. Not so tricky this way. – iBug Sep 5 '17 at 12:06
  • @iBug It has quite evolved since I last used it, heh. By the way, certain custom ROMs block it. – Death Mask Salesman Sep 5 '17 at 12:41
  • I scanned with Dr.Web.... There is a threat named as ' not a virus adware (adware)' and when I am going for options, it is giving only option as 'ignore' not to 'delete' or 'quarantine' as other threats. Message appears that it is a file from system and only option to ignore. It says 'the standard neutralizing actions are not applicable for system applications' – user236077 Sep 5 '17 at 15:22

These type of ads usually come from an app you have installed, typically uninstalling the offending app will correct this.

Use Addons Detector to determine the app that is causing the ads and uninstall it.

Install Dr. Web (You can use any antivirus but this worked for me) application from play store.

Let the application scan your mobile phone. It will detect and remove all the adware from you phone. I tried and this worked for me.
