Hi,

If you are being overwhelmed with ads in every app all over phone? You might have malware, or rather called adware. Get Sophos mobile security app in playstore and scan your device. Unfortunately, some of these malware can auto-root devices on older OS. 5.x and under. Also, you could look up procedure to put your phone in safe mode,this shuts down all apps from third parties. Then try and find the app or apps causing the issue. If playstore not an option, go to Sophos main website to get the app.

If you have not cleared cache for all apps yet, open settings, find storage, and clear cache for all apps. Then turn phone completely off, wait ten seconds, and turn back on. I can try to help further later today, after 5pm eastern time,US.

The only solution I've found is having root access on my phone, then I install MoaAB.

You got a malware or similar. Factory reset should be a quick fix.

For some time now (maybe since last Android update?), the 1st thing I get when I turn on my s5 is an add. Anybody know if this is by design, or might I have addware?
