Why do all my apps now have ad banners?

    I have been noticing that most, if not all, of my apps now have small ad banners in them. I have unchecked the Google ad thing in settings and still no good. I have run Air Push Detector and it found nothing. I ran Lookout Ad Network Detector and it found some things and selected Opt out for the ones it found...still no good.

    Where are these things coming from??

    Are these apps you have downloaded? Can you name a few?

    Many apps that have a "free" version vs. a "pay" version have scrolling banner ads in them. If phone is rooted, you can install ad blockers, which also prevent pop-up ads from the internet.

    You could also just turn your data off when you go to use these apps. Ads can't get through without data access.

    If you don’t know many abt android, I promote aircover security to do all for your phone.

    Actually, it’s you question make me find this AirCover Security, it performs specially in Privacy Advisor

    It has an AD detector which monitors apps with annoying ads and can help you uninstall unwanted apps forever.

    These things are coming from Google............And Android is the product of Google, so technically, Google will not allow to stop it.
