    I have built a BLE scanning application and on a Mecer tablet device running Android 7, the Scan Results has lots of advertisements as compared to a Webfleet PRO 8475 running android 9 which has very few advertisements scanned everry second. Any suggestions on what could be wrong, the Android 9 scan misses most of my BLE beacons but the Android 7 scans all beacons.

    No idea what the actual problem is.

    But FWIW I never see any Google's ads now on any device that's logged into my Google Account, like YouTube, etc.

    You're apparently doing a one-to-one comparison of two different things. Bluetooth Low Energy is basically used in the market sector. Companies use BLE to push their ads to mobile devices within range. Conversely, a Webfleet Pro 8475 is a task-specific device to be used in traffic situations.
    Ads popping up in your app are expected, an indication the app is working properly. Ads showing up on a Webfleet device would be an annoying distraction.

    I genuinely cannot think why anyone would want ads appearing like that, but each to their own.
