Hello @jojibeat,

Thank you for reporting this issue.

Sometimes, unwanted pop-ups can occur in your browser when an extension is added to Chrome or another browser.

To check your Chrome extensions, please follow these steps on your Android device:

1. Click on the puzzle piece icon near your Google Accounts profile picture in the top-right corner.

2. From the pop-out menu, click on "Manage extensions". This will open a new tab.

3. Locate any extension that you do not recognize.

4. To remove a Google Chrome extension, select "Remove".

Once we have completed this step, let us know if you are still encountering any other issues and we can recommend the next steps.

Hello @jojibeat,

Thanks for your patience.

I apologize for my word choice about extensions. Let's check the notifications to see what permissions these sites have.

  1. On your Android device, open Chrome.
  2. To the right of the address bar, tap More. Settings.
  3. Tap Site settings. Notifications.
  4. Scroll down under notifications and look for the corresponding sites, I would recommend disabling them and reporting back if this helps.
