    I've just searched for "leadboltapps" and it appears to be another of those advert push services that get installed as a part of another app but then bombard you with unwanted ads. From what I can see, it is a genuine company offering a 'reputable' service, but please do your own search rather than just relying on my 30 seconds of research!!! I was subject to something similar a few months ago and researched the [different] company before I followed the link to their website and said that I didn't want any more push ads from them. Since then, I've not received any. I think it's a real abuse of trust that this kind of thing exists but, provided you first make sure they are coming from a known company, I think it is safe to follow the 'opt-out' link.
