    I have the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ phone and periodcially I keep this really annoying popup. I don't remember what app I downloaded that is causing this problem. I clicked on the popup that says "Why am I seeing this?" It says that "the app or webiste you visited uses Facebook Audience Network to show you the most relevant ads". I tried block it by I can't. Can someone help, please? If I delete my facebook account will this solve my problem? I'm tired of having to keep exiting from the popup to get to my apps. I could be in the middle of taking a picture when all of a sudden the app appears. I need some assistance the solve this. How do I get rid of the Popup?

    Thank you.

    remove any facebook apps and re-test. this is not an issue specific to the phone.

    a screenshot will also help.

    Perhaps you may try some anti-malware app such as Malwarebytes or AdwCleaner to have a scan for your Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ phone.

    Do you have any 'cleaning' or 'booster' apps on your phone?

    These are notorious for causing this crap.

    Also, some sites you visit can sometimes install malware/adware like this without you knowing.

    I might be able to help you find it and uninstall it.

    But, first see if you have any of those cleaner or booster apps, battery savers, memory expanders, app killers, that sort of thing.

    Any of those that contain any ads at all while inside the app you do not want at all.
    (That is a different subject.)

    To check for an adware/malware app that may have been downloaded, go to:

    Settings
    Apps
    Show All Apps

    Now scroll to the bottom.
    These apps often do not have any icons, so they will not show up in your normal app drawer, but they will show up here.

    They should be at the very bottom, as they are untitled and have no icon.

    Look for any placeholder like the other apps that has no icon or name, but shows memory used permissions, etc. like the other apps.

    If you find these, uninstall them, right there.

    If you are paranoid about uninstalling apps you have no info about, you can back up the apk with APK Extractor from F-Droid.

    Anyway, the last time I had this issue, I made a short screen recording about how I found it, and how I removed it.

    You got that right!! Facebooks unethical business practices costs them a 5 billion dollar fine. Im guessing they made a hell of alot more than that harvesting our data. My question is we the costumes are the victims and yet wheres are compensation? Who keeps that 5 billion? No restitution for us thats for sure.
