    HI everyone

    I have Samsung Galasxy S7 and For some reason (not porn :) ) my phone my started to popup unwanted chrome pages, even when i'm not browsing. I can just check messages or use some app and suddenly chrome window shows up with spam, sometimes nude ones and the spam window just takes over whatever i was doing before and i need to shut it.

    I tried cleaning the history, deleting coockies, ad blocks - but it juse keeps happning

    ant suggestions?

    what did you try? @Trom's suggestion? its probably not from chrome if you are not in chrome when it happens. it sounds like you got some kind of adware installed. i would begin deleting any apps you installed recently. start with the most recent a work your way backwards. and before you uninstall the apps make sure you clear cache and data before deleting the app. some apps will leave behind its cache and data on the phone even after it is uninstalled.
