    Unwanted Notifications

    In my notifications I all of a sudden started getting unwanted notifications like pop ups. Why is this happening and how do I stop it?

    do you have an antivirus app installed? you can try AirPush Detector to see if you installed an app thats doing this.

    If you are downloading apps from places other than the play store you have to tick the setting to allow apps from unknown sources. If you have done that then you open yourself up to all sorts of crap. Make sure you don't do it (I'm not saying you are by the way) then this should stop unwanted pop ups

    Thanks. I had recently downloaded Zedge but I did download from the play store. I went back into the app and saw that the live wallpapers was making popups occur.
