    If this only happens when you're using your router at home for browsing try resetting your router.

    From what I have read this is spread from a malicious chrome browser extension called "adblock super" via chrome sync.

    If you have ad block super (not add block plus - that's ok) as an extension on a pc you should remove it.

    Then on your phone wipe cache, wipe data and uninstal all browsers you have. (Just wipe cache and data for stock browser)

    This should help I believe. I don't have 1st hand experience thankfully!
