Since installing a video download app onto my Lenovo Tab3 10" android device I keep getting notifications from firrectly.top (that I'd rather not be receiving) Internet searches recommend installing and running Malwarebites but having done this I'm still getting the notifications and Malwarebites doesn't seem to have highly the virus (or whatever it is) I'm using the trial version of Malwarebites and don't feel confident upgrading to the paid version if it fails to identify an existing issue

Hi @Dudleian,

If you like, you can send us a Apps Report and I can look deeper into this.

To send an Apps Report with Malwarebytes for Android use the following instructions.

1.Open the Malwarebytes for Android app.

2.Tap the Menu icon.

3. Tap Your apps.

4. Tap three lines icon in upper right corner.

5. Tap Send to support

Choose an email app to send Apps Report.

Your email app will open with the Apps Report included. Send the Apps Report to create a ticket.

PM the email used and/or the ticket number assigned.

However, this could just be browser related ads as well. This is caused by the way most browsers handle redirections executed by javascript code.  Most browsers don't do a great job of preventing these redirects, which also cause ad pop-ups.  Advertising affiliates are aware of this, and exploit this weakness.  Even if an advertising affiliate is shut down for using this exploit, they just come back with a different affiliate id and are right back at it.

The best way to block these pop-ups are to try a different browsers, disable javascript, install a browser with ad blocking (like Opera), and/or install Ad-block Plus.

If you encounter these pop-ups again, back out of them using Android's back key. Also, clearing your history and cache will help stop the ads from reoccurring.

Thanks for reaching out,
Nathan
