Screenshot_20200923-003715_TikTok.jpg

 hi there. I'm not very techy so please excuse me. I have a Samsung s10 and updated my phone a few days ago to the most recent update.

 

Since then, throughout the day, a random faded screen appears several times a day on my screen. (See above image. I was watching tiktok when it last popped up and I screenshot it to see if it would capture it and it did)

 

It says webpage not available. And has a website link and an error message.

 

I've checked all my apps but that page isn't opened anywhere. I've checked the link and it seems like some adult advertising site. It never appears as a proper page. It just randomly shows up faded in the background of whatever app I'm using at the time.  Locking and unlocking the app doesn't make it fade away. Opening and closing apps doesn't make it fade away either. It remains on my screen even if I close all my running apps. And eventually after a minute or 2, it fades completely only to reappear in a few hours.

I have no idea what triggers it to appear. I've checked my history and I've never visited the site that appears in the "faded background"  http://taraa.xyz/2GSm

 

I have no idea why it keeps showing up faded in my screen randomly then disappearing after a couple of minutes.

 

I tried googling to see if anyone else had a similar issue but haven't come across anyone who has.

 

I also did the phone scan for malware in the security settings which came back clear with 0 threats. Havent installed any apps recently or visited any usual sites that I can think of.

 

Any help?

looks like burn in but not sure if that would show on a screen shop go to Google and get a blank white screen on images if its their it may be burn in. or back up your phone and do a factory reset if its still their after the factory reset it is screen burn in.

It doesn't show up on a white screen. I doubt it would be a burn in as I don't think it would have shown up in the screenshot like you said.

 

As I said it appears every few hours, stays for about 2 mins and then disappears and keeps doing that every couple of hours.

 

I did also check my browsing history and uve never accessed that site or page for it to be "burned in" to my screen.

 

I thought it might have been a bug with the recent update as it wasn't happening until I updated a few days ago. Really weird

 

I've restarted several times and left my phone off for an hour but it doesn't stop it showing up when I switch it back on again
