So I visited a torrent site (not sure if it's the cause 100% though) on my Samsung Galaxy S8 last night & since then have been getting the notifications ads from Chrome.

I downloaded & ran Malwarebytes, firewall & antivirus after the popup situation but all 3 apps say my phone is fine with nothing showing in the scan results.

How do I remove the notification ads in the Samsung Galaxy S8? Also, my Chrome browser freezes a lot now too.

  • @beeshyams Did what you said but the ads still show up once every hour at least. Why isn't MalwareBytes working to remove them?

It appears that you enabled notifications for the website tx8t.invictioner.club.

To turn these off, open Chrome > Site settings > Notifications. Tap tx8t.invictioner.club, tap the bell icon, and choose Block (if similar sites under the filter *.invictioner.club have notification access, block them too).
