I see the screenshot but do test your phone in safe mode and report back

Popups mostly appear only after you have given permission on a website to receive push notifications.

Like on the screen shot or as mentioned before from apps.

You can start by going to settings, do a search for notifications (tap on magnifying glass) and switch off all kind of notifications.

You have to do the same for all apps too.

You can also take a look at app permissions.

It's very interesting to have some insight in where you allow apps to gather information from.

Re: How to remove all annoying ads that pop on my phone

Hi. I restarted phone in safe mode and left it for a few hrs using it occasionally. There were no pop up ads at all. I have restarted it agsin as normal and deleted 6 of the latest apps I had installed. Then bam!! Another pop up for dog food. This has not happened in the time I've had my phone. TIA 😡🤔

If it looks like dogfood, feels like dogfood, tastes like dogfood,... it IS dogfood.

Looks like you have been targeted by Pedigree.

 

Maybe this will bring some relief:

Goto settings, apps & notifications, special app access, display over other apps and grant less permissions
