An "app" won't leave me alone (battery plus?)

    I keep getting messages from a browser app (it's not even in the app store). It's called battery plus, and my phone wont auto instal and warns me that manually installing could be a bad idea so I won't! It keeps sending a message that says my battery is running low (even when my battery is full! And even while its still plugged in on charge!). It make the very unlikely statement that it could increase my battery life by 200%!

    Can someone please help me stop this.

    Thanks, :)

    Hi and Welcome to AF,

    OK, I think I've found what you are talking about: a website that makes such claims & tries to automatically download an apk (onto my laptop, so certainly wasting its time!). Even if I believed the claims I'd avoid this just for being too pushy! ;)

    The question is, why do you keep getting messages? Is there something installed on your phone, or does the browser just keep connecting to this site? It sounds like the latter, so I'd try to start simple: clear browser history and cookies, check your homepage hasn't been changed, anything that could be taking you back to this site.

    An app on your phone might push this aggressive AirPush advertisement on you.

    To find this app you should install an AirPush detector like LookOut's 'Ad Network Detector'.

    OP, once you find out what app is serving you those ads, be sure to leave a 1-star rating for it in the Play store, and leave a comment in the review section warning others. Simply removing it doesn't put pressure on the Devs that use this type of advertising.

    You welcome. Before I got those apps my droid was infested with push ads, icons appearing, notification bar intrusions, mayhem. Since, I
