How to remove the advertisements that keep showing up

Problem: Hello, I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Every time I turn it on there is an advertisement or more even before I get to the main screen. How can I fix this?

Solution: There can be several reasons for the issue. You might be clicked or subscribed to any apps without knowing or there can be other reasons too. This is a very small problem and we can fix this very easily. So, don’t panic! But, these ads can have some viruses that can harm your phone. If so, that would be a big issue.

Or else if you installed an app with an ad page recently or if you left the internet browser open in a page with advertisements, ads will keep showing up on the screen. If you clicked an ad on a website and that website will automatically install apps to your mobile (some websites do that), so every time you are connected to the internet it will keep showing up. I know how annoying to see those pop-ups every time. Because I am an android user too.

Other Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Issues

Problem: My Samsung Galaxy Edge is not giving sound notifications for all text messages especially for Whatsapp messages which is a big issue for me. I checked all settings and couldn’t find the reason. Please help me. 

Solution: As you have mentioned there is no issue with other apps. For this problem, I only have two options. The first one is to change all the notification sounds to its highest volume. The second option is to find out whether you have disabled message notifications. Samsung Galaxy S7 has this option of disabling notification sound for a particular messaging app. If this has happened it is a very small issue.

Follow the below steps to check whether the message notifications are disabled.

You are still facing the problem even after this call Samsung Tech Support as it might be a software issue. Or else back up your files and reset the phone as mentioned above.

Problem: My Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge gives a full internet connection that gives connection only for 2 minutes when the internet source is changed.

Solution: Before starting tell me the connection that you are trying to connect? It is cellular data or Wi-Fi? There can be many reasons to not have the internet even with a very good connection.

If you are using a Wi-Fi router, please check whether the Ethernet cable is connected properly. If it is not connected a blinking or solid ‘red’ light will be shown. And also even the router displays a full bar connection between your device and the router, data might not be available.

All above are valid when you are using mobile data also. Make sure that your location has data coverage and you have enough data. Both factors are very important to connect when Wi-Fi is not available. You can check your data balance by contacting your service provider.

To conclude, if you are facing the problem for the first time even with a strong signal, we strongly suggest you contact your carrier. At times there may be connection issues in some areas and they will help you to resolve the problem.
