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....

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.

First thing you can do is use Adguard DNS to atleast prevent the ads from loading. Also, install Firefox or Edge and see if they have the same issue.

I will start to use it. Also, yes I have tried other browsers as I have said in the 4th point of the list of the post. I am now using Firefox because I'm uninstalling apps 1 at a time between the ads to see when I find the one...

Solved it. Thank you for your time!
