    Hello all,
    For the past month the Google Chrome in my device keeps popping up with some odd (not porn) websites. It does so every couple of hours and each time it pops up, it opens an additional tab with such a website. I have turned off the permission to pop up and all, but it still does it. Any idea how to locate the "trouble maker" and terminate this issue?

    Many thanks in advance,

    I might have installed some new apps recently, yes, although I did check that they should be having a proper rating in Google Apps. Is Adguard a trust able app?

    A 'proper' rating?

    Google is the largest supplier of adware and malware apps on Android. I literally look for my apps anywhere else first.

    Google Play Store won't allow any real ad-blocking apps, as they violate Google's business model.
    That pretty much says everything about Google.
