Hey guys, I'm having a rather big issue with the ads. They're coming out of everywhere and invading my whole screen. They get in my view when I'm trying to type and they keep resetting whichever article I'm in. Does anyone know of a solution for me? I'm using a Samsung A5 which is running on Android 7.0.``
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers xx

I use edge and have an ad blocker. It only happens on here sadly.

Try doing your web searches in secret mode! This will hide your device I D number. And thats what advertisers use to target you for adds!

Go to google settings
Tap on privacy
Find web activity - pause it!
Then delete all past web activity!
That should cut down a lot of the pop up adds!
But remember advertisers monitor your web activity in real time through your carrier! You will never be able to stop all the ads!

James
once again sent your reply to this post to me instead of Ava!
Bye the way trying another browser isn't going to help stop the ads! All browsers share your web activity with advertisers!
Thats how they make money!
Are you just responding to post with anything you can think of to get the 10 points?

In reguards to your original post.
You said you have a Samsung A5, and you were using the 7.0 software?
I have a Samsung s5, and i have been warned not to install the 7.0 software in my device because it takes up a large amount of storage space and it could overload the free storage space!
Question: how much total storage do you have in that device? And how is your A5 running on the 7.0 software. Have there been any problems or negative effects?
Just curious!
