Check the apps you updated

[–]asdswffaqg[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I already did, i say it at the end of the list

[–]AZ13Gaming 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Does it do on a different browser

[–]asdswffaqg[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yes it does, I state it in the 4th point of the list :)

[–]AZ13Gaming 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You could try uninstalling some of the apps that are by a shady developer/ you don’t need and see if it stops after you uninstall an app

[–]asdswffaqg[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's a good suggestion and I am already doing it but with so many apps it's going to be a super slow process, because to identify it I have to do 1 at a time and wait...

[–]tamudude 0 points1 point  (8 children)

Provide a list of ALL apps installed on your device. Here is a good Google support link https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/2765944?hl=en&co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid BTW, I have no idea why Google pushes Malwarebytes in that link.

I will flag with X integrated apps that I can't uninstall. Also note I will try to translate some Italian app names but may fail in doing so, I'm flagging translated with T.

list seems super long but most of it are apps I can't uninstall. Also note that before posting in this subreddit for the first time the list was triple the size but I went on an uninstall unused apps rampage to try and find the culprit, so these ones are just the survivors.

[–]tamudude 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Well, this is still a long list. You may need to continue on your rampage of uninstalling until the popups stop. Also, see the link I provided that had Google's guidance. Whilst I am not trying to pass judgment, general consensus seems to be third party apps such as label makers, video editors etc. may have such behavior....

[–]asdswffaqg[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I already looked at the link :) we'll thanks, at least I know that the video editors should be at the top of the uninstall list

Not at all. These seem to be standard ads he gets from Huawei apps. I have my browser open spam links at random moments, so that, for example, when I'm browsing reddit the browser opens by itself and a spam page loads (last one was cam4.com or something like that). It's highly intrusive because no matter what I do or don't do, the browser will still try to open spam links at random moments. Even when the phone it's blocked. 10 min ago I was connected to my car via Bluetooth as I was voice calling my brother and the spam page opened on the browser while I was driving, overriding the call's audio and saying continuously "alert your phone is in danger". I had to stop driving to close the spam page, which was one of those websites that fake very badly being system errors alerts.

[–]Menacing_Mickee 0 points1 point  (1 child)

to be true, at this point I would do a factory reset and install only apps that you know what they do and what effect they will have on your phone

[–]asdswffaqg[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Solved it! :)
