Hi @Gt-truth,

To start, you won't be able to remove the Chrome (Google) browser.  However, you can install another browser and make it your default.  You could then disable Chrome in Apps info.  I personally like the Brave browser, but there are other options like Firefox, Opera, and even Microsoft Edge now.  All have ad blocks, and all of them are on Google PLAY.

What make/model is your phone?  Some phones come with apps that display ads right out of the box.

Hi @Gt-truth,

I don't think there would be any apps displaying ads on a Huawei STK-L21, so you should be good there.

If they continue to happen after installing Firefox, screenshots would be helpful.

HI @mbam_mtbr so I have to install the Firefox  but it has a few problems , one is to open a blank page even when I search for anything so I turn off what I think the ad blocker and this solve the blank page problem but however the Firefox is very slow for the android OS . so I had to uninstall it  and I had to install Brave .

no any AD on either Firefox and Brave though :) so will continue with Brave web browser from now on :)

Hi @Gt-truth,

I don't believe Browser Guard is available to the Android OS.  At least not to my knowledge.  However, Malwarebytes for Android does scan for phishing URLs and will block. But only when using the Chrome browser.

Hi @Gt-truth,

Correct.  Only Chrome on Android is protected with Malwarebytes for Android.

Hi @Gt-truth,

So you are getting ads at the beginning of YouTube Videos, correct?  This action is actually legitimate.  Many apps and services legitimately shows ads in order to keep the app/service free. 

It becomes Adware if the ads become aggressive.  This includes pop-up ads that overlay on screen, ads on lock screen, ads in notifications, ad redirects, etc.

hi @mbam_mtbr yes that is correct . and yes this ads becoming an adware or malware . pretty annoying ads  ! can’t watch YouTube sometime because the ads suddenly appears while watching YouTube’s videos .

As I understand it, this is normal for the free version of YouTube.  The timing depends on the particular video and how long you've been watching any videos without being exposed to an ad.  If you hit the "<" navigation button of your phone during one of those ads, it may stop the ad and your video will resume about where it stopped.  Or you could just let it play and rest your eyes by looking away from the device 🙃

Yes, normally ads are shown during video playback on YouTube, however a good ad blocker like uBlock Origin or Adblock Plus will block them and they should be available for any Chromium or Mozilla based browser (as well as Internet Explorer in the case of Adblock Plus).
