Hi @jcw

Malwarebytes Anti-malware for Android does not feature web protection which means that it will not block pop-ups you get or prevent redirects when browsing the web.

The way around those popups or redirecting sites is to close the web browser and start over or tap the back button on your Home screen.

You may want to also clear the web browser app data as well.

To do that, go to the Android Settings > General > Apps.

Locate the name of the web browser from the list and tap to open its settings.

You should see a Clear Data button on the following App info screen. If you do not, tap on the STORAGE option where you should find it.

Tap the Clear Data button.

Close settings.

If an app is opening your browser to show you ads you should uninstall that app.
