    Hi,

    I've been getting a "Similar Items" shopping pop up a lot recently. It happens whilst playing Beatstar, specifically when long pressing with 2 fingers. I'm unable to find an app for this on my phone, so not sure if it is malware, a setting related to my touch combination or game related. I was unable to find anything about it on Google either. Any help getting rid of this would be appreciated!

    You're referring to this?
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.spaceapegames.beatstar

    Does it only happen in Beatstar, or does it happen in other apps as well? If it's the former, then they're very likely coming from that app. The Play Store description does state "Contains ads".

    Yeah, that's the game. It only happens in game, but then again, I don't long press with 2 fingers in any other app on the phone. It contains ads, yes, but the kind you watch in return for items to help game play. This is a pop up mid game which interrupts play completely.

    Does the game require an internet connection to play?

    Because if it will work without one, then turn off internet access and clear the app's cache before playing.

    Another way to do this while maintaining internet connection for other apps would be to use a firewall to block internet for selected apps.
    The cache must still be cleared.

    Yet another possible solution would be to use an ad-blocker like Blokada.
    The cache must still be cleared.

    (Do not download Blokada from the Play Store, it is not the same version and will not block ads.)
