  1. I keep getting pop ads on my galaxy grand 2. I have blocked pop ups. I even removed all the apps i installed except the ones that the phone came with. I still see the pop ups. What else can I try?

    1. Hi Mitesh,
      Thanks for coming.
      If you're like me, sometimes I confused to differ between pop-ups and java script. So, to check whether it's a pop-ups or java script, try to turn off java script and turn on pop-ups then see what happen afterwards. If it not appears, then it's a java script which is looks like a pop ups.

  2. I enable Block Pop Ups, but I still get them!!

    1. Hi L. Ramos,
      Thanks for coming.
      Try turning off java script too. Though you have enabled block pop ups, some of them sometimes keep appear when java script is turned on.

    2. Thanks! Will try to see if that works!
