Hey @Shewcroft! Are these ads on your lock screen? If so, please check out this guide: http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/why-are-there-ads-on-my-lock-screen-and-how-can-i-g... Let us know how you get on!:robothappy:
Ads keep appearing randomly, sometimes when I'm in the middle of typing something? Can I prevent this? I use a Samsung Gallery J3 2017 edition.
I agree it can be annoying @Em1972
What I usually find is that a person has downloaded an app that contains ad's.
To help determine this please put your phone in safe mode which turns off all your downloaded apps and leaves the stock ones alone which can help to determine if an app is causing this situation.
If the ad's stop in safe mode then it's a case of elimination by deleting one app at a time until it stops.
