What really bugs me OS not the adds within apps, it is the browser pop ups when I try fo find a soccer stream that say your tablet is full of viruses and Armageddon is 5 minutes away, then a countdown clock starts . So I get mad enough to do the click here and let me be escorted to play store to see what they want me to download as the cure. Then e-mail the developer to ask if they are so desperate for app sales that they need to use lying shareware popups. Still waiting for a reply

I hate those too but I'd never click on one. I close the browser immediately and open it and close the tab quickly before the pop-up. It can take several tries. I now use an ADGuard on my Google devices. It has help my phone tremendously. I can read articles without being hijacked.

PS here is what I sent re the pop ups:
to cleannowfeedback@gmail...
"I am sick of being directed to the play store to buy this , by scareware pop ups which falsely say my tablet has viruses that will destroy it in five minutes. Are you so desperate for sales that you have to use via such lying scum scareware ?
My tablet has quality av and is 100 percent clean
So stop this
Galaxy+Tab+S+10.5.

We have detected that your Samsung Galaxy+Tab+S+10.5 has been infected with viruses. It will soon corrupt your sim card, data, photos, and contacts if no action is taken.
a click here takes me to the play store to buy that cleannow app
& the 5 minute countdown runs - at time of my screengrab it was at 3 minutes and 04 seconds with do not exit this page to not ignore this warning extra crap ware


PS offtopic but on the subject of trying to find a workins soccre straeam for a given gam, my favourite reposte was the reddit post under a match link that said something like "don't get me wrong, I appreciate knowing about the 127 sexy girls in my immediate area, but right now I just want to see the game please."

sure that's wise, I have malwarebytes av running and I don't have a sim card in the tablet even! so I know it's crap, but I wanted to see what snake oil was being sold, and leave some choice comments at the store ( except you cannot do that if you've not bought it )
i tried all the variosu ad guards but they have to use a VPN to work and that running on top of the VPN that I sometimes want to use gets messy...

I am fairly fearless with browser pop ups on android as I figure they are going to try to download PC infections which will fail to execute. I can route throuh open DNS to block some of it. on my PC, malwarebytes pro is veryaggressie, I can look at ~10 soccer game streams found at reddit at for 9 out of 10 its gonna say "dont go there"
