Good Afternoon Everyone

 

Can anyone please help me with this problem? It started about a week ago, and I am getting Random full screen pop up ads.

 

It mainly happens when the phone is locked and not being used. Suddenly a random video app will start playing in the background; its especially annoying when it happens in the middle of the night.

 

I was thinking of doing a  clean reinstall? 

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated, as this is driving me nuts.

 

Thank you

The LED Flashlight app  was the problem on my S7. Uninstalled - problem solved.

You can run a full phone scan using MalwareBytes off the Google Play Store and there should be a button to remove any malware.

Best solution since this one is quick and doesnt imply dozens of manipulations, I found out what app was causing problems and uninstalled it in about 30s and without restarting my phone.
