random music clip playing on android

Recommended Posts

In the last week or 2, at seemingly random times a 10-15 second music clip plays on my phone.  It's the same clip, and sounds like music from India.  

I don't know that I've installed any apps of late that I can associate with the problem/timeframe.  

I have not been able to discern any telltale evidence of what's causing/playing the music.  No notifications, not sure where to look for log files to examine?  I have MWB installed....and the phone scans clean.  

I googled it and most suggestions point to an app, but I don't have any of them that have been ID'd as culprits.  Any way to zero in on the problem/app???

Hi @blownawayin5,

I would start by making sure there isn't anything in your browser opening causing this.  Also try clearing your history and cache within the browser will help stop the ads from reoccurring.  In addition, clearing the Storage & Cache within the browser’s App Info itself also helps:


  1. Go to Settings > App Info
  2. Go to your browser app icon in App info list (such as Chrome) and click on it
  3. Once in your browser’s App info, go to Storage & cache
    1. Click Clear Storage
    2. Click Clear cache

We can also look at your apps if you could send an Apps Report.

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.

At this point, it would be very helpful to mention you are submitting via recommendation from the Malwarebytes forum.  This allows our support staff to know where to direct it.

By sending the Apps Report, you will create a ticket in our support system.

Private Message (PM) me the email used and/or the ticket number assigned.
