    Hello, I was browsing the internet on my phone and all of a sudden I get a download on my phone for pokerstars. I turned off my internet and stopped the download. Has this happened to anyone before? Should anything more be done?

    Thank you

    Hi Capt and welcome to Android Forums!

    The only thing I can think of is maybe there is some malware on your phone that is trying to install other apps. I would run a full scan with AVG anti-virus. If that app is not on Play, then that's cause for concern and a factory reset to get id of any nefarious software that might be on your phone.

    It also might not actually be a download, but rather a push notification advertising it and offering to take you to the download page. Unwanted push notifications are an unpleasant reality.

    Maybe someone else has another solution, but that's what I have for you :eek:

    It's great to have you here!

    I think you've unintentionally touched a download link on the web site.
    Now it's just an .apk file of this game in your folder Download ... and not installed it'd do no harm.

    But if you don't find this .apk file in your folder Download you'd follow the Chief's advice :)

    I don't think it is malware because I haven't had any problems since, but thanks anyways!

    Ya, I believe it was an unintentional link because there is no .apk file. Thanks!
