    Hi, I'm experiencing a bizarre situation. When I run my Android devices on my home wifi (browsing Internet) random fake virus warnings popup or I'm switched to google play with invitation to install some games. Nothing like this happens with my Windows devices or my wife's iphone when the run on the same home wifi ... Any suggestions?

    Likely you have some app with popup ads. Download Add-Ons detector and look for which apps have popups.

    Sounds like you've got some adware installed, possibly from some "free" app or game, that's only active when it's on WiFi and not 3G/4G mobile data. Have a look at this thread about what you might be able to do about it..
