Moto G5 (not from Amazon) - how to remove ads?

My daughter has a Moto G5 plus that we bought from Republic (not Amazon) in April. It as ads on the lock screen that are driving her nuts. I didn’t realize her phone has ads. All the other phones we have, also purchased from Republic Wireless, do not have ads. How can we remove the ads from this one phone??

if you are seeing ads on the lock screen and did get it from RW then there is an app that was installed that is causing this. start looking at the apps install starting with the last one that was installed and working backwards till you find it…


Republic does not sell phones with ads of any kind (lockscreen or otherwise). Any ads she’s seeing have been put there by a “free” app that she’s installed.
