    Not trying to hijack the thread, but I don't want to start a new one just for this...

    I have a Samsung S6 using Chrome. Out of the blue I started to get these messages... Gotta be a scam, right??
    .
    I have Lookout and clean master installed for viruses. Neither of them picked up anything

    The website you are visiting is giving you popups

    Hmmm, I have popups disabled on browser and I don't visit any weird sites. Sometimes there are ads in the margins of regular sites that I mistakenly open but those are usually for auto makers or some other site I've visited looking to buy something. Clear my browser history??

    Bah, I should have started a separate thread because I have another problem with my
    stock message app that I can't figure out either. I've tried replacing it with Chomp, Go, Textra, etc but they have way too many ads.

    I'm not familiar with phone popup blockers but thats what those websites are, they pop up in front of the website you are viewing and try to get you to click their links and etc.

    Why are there updates to so many apps all the time? Not a day goes by without 2 or 3 of them. I get that there are security issues that crop up constantly Lookout/Power Clean, but some of this stuff has constant updates. Microsoft Word, Vspeed test, YouTube, Netflix, TripIt, SwiftKey, Uber, Dropbox are examples

    I tried to disable text alerts while talking on the phone. I've gone back and changed every setting I can think of but I can't get rid of this. I don't get alerts now but this is really annoying. I have to hit ok every time or it won't disconnect the phone. Galaxy S6... Any help would be appreciated.

    Look at your apps and see what's running and trying to use your data while talking on the phone. I think it only pops up when something is trying to access the internet while you're on the phone.

    Could be an ID 10 T user issue. Maybe try this as an alternative:

    Or an iPhone. I don’t have those problems and I visit lots of strange websites.
