    Hello guys,

    For some weeks now, my phone is getting weird & annoying video advertisments while in standby (screen off) They even play on data. This costs me a fortune of money and I'm done with it (The makers of whatever it is probably is making some good money with it). I'm almost sure that it isn't any downloaded app as almost all my apps come from the Playstore (Nope not all of them lol, but they are from trusted sources).

    Okay so I need help bc I'm done with this Bullshit.

    You can temporary remove apps to recycle bin with any custom uninstaller. try to remove apps for a while and see if it's help. Hope you will find app with ads in this way.

    When you see the ad come up, use the button that shows all of your open apps to figure out which app it is

    I tried that but as soon as I turn on the screen, the advertisement stops playing.

    You have a pretty bad virus bro, I'd recommend doing a backup and doing a full wipe on the phone
