Default Re: Unwanted Adds

You can try clearing your browsing history but if your using that many apps it could be any one that is using your info to advertise. Welcome to the new way to advertise. Carriers are even selling your location and other stuff to advertisers. Have you noticed when your near a store you get text messages or other pop ups? The newest thing but as yet no one can figure out how is when your talking about something like a new toy or other thing you start getting messages. Suspicion is the mike on the phones are being eaves dropped on or accessed just like the cameras on pc's.

So give some thought to trying to check your apps and figuring out which one is doing the adds.
