Full Screen Ads and search redirections in Mobile Malware Removal Help & Support Posted December 8, 2019 For benefit of the others. I've logged a ticket and have sent the report to Malwarebytes, unfortunately I've been told that without them having physical access to the device I'm on my own. I've been given link to some recommendations which I found quite helpful https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/android-app-displaying-popup-adverts/ I thought I would give in and just reinstall the system but eventually decided to at least give it a try and hunt down the app which was triggering Ads. First of all I stopped all application updates - which I should've done as soon as I noticed Ads, so continuous automatic updates of all my apps every day won't make investigation harder. Then I used 3rd party software to sort all my apps by installation/update time, and starting from the latest I started removing all that were not Google/Facebook/one of the big brands, taking screenshots before removal so I knew what I was changing. After a few uninstallations I was restarting mobile and was testing if Ads were still there. So a couple of restarts later I approached close to the date I remembered Ads showed up and noticed Wallpaper application that I vaguely remember installing. I checked on Google Play for reviews and pretty much straight away it became obvious that it was the bad one as others were experiencing exactly the same issue. I've removed and restarted my mobile and so far 24h later all previous issues are gone including my google search redirections so I think it was also part of the package For anyone interested, this is what caused me so much trouble DON'T INSTALL IT - MALWARE: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wallpaper.flashlight.compass&hl=en_GB I sent the link over to Nathan from Malwarebytes, hopefully it will be included in their database and detected with the next scan.
