So glad I finally found some good research and info about this matter. My Note 8 is now bombarded with novelCRAP & appSH*T! Wish i never gave up root now. 😢
While rooted I never had this issue. Only a couple of weeks after removing root did this start my Chrome browser woes. Yes, I have Videoder AND there Play Store app Premium Adfree (mentioned above by Brianwc).
Like I said, it took about 2 weeks before the pop-ups started to happen after removing root and factory resetting my Note 8. The pop-ups would happen after every other Play Store app update that I did. Now, they happen at random with increasing frequency. So much do that I installed the Play Store app Block Site to help combat this.
I've come up with another site that I haven't seen mentioned in my redirects (see attached pic).
I'll do the removal procedures listed above by mbam_mtbr.
Once again, I'm thankful to see the best anti-malware company diligently working so hard to save us from the BS. I only hope Samsung isn't embedding this nonsense into their software too.
