TIK TOK keeps poping up want to be installed


#1

What phone do you have?

What plan are you on?

Does your plan include data, or just talk & text?


Issue Description


#2

TIK TOK keeps popping up wanting to be installed. HOW do you get rid of it. MOTO G5+
DATA and unlimited text talk


#3

That’s an ad from some other app you’ve installed. What apps have you installed recently?


#4

I have uninstall most all apps. Thanks


#5

And that ad is still coming up? If so, does it just come up at random times or specifically when using something like Chrome?


#6

Seems to pop up after the phone has sat and the when one wants to use it.


#7

So, whatever app is doing this, is still installed. Do you have anything on there like an anti-virus or any app that purports to make the phone faster, have better battery life, says it cleans the phone or frees up space, or anything like that?


#8

HAD avg, I think all the cleaner tuner type apps are gone.


#9

I hate to do this, but other than the apps that come with the phone, can you tell us what else you have left?

Honestly, it could be a whole number of these.

  1. Coupons for Jcpenny - I’m always wary of an app for a store that isn’t made by that store
  2. Not sure what Charging is, but if that’s an app that you’ve installed, I would start there
  3. Not sure what rain music is, but if it is an app that makes white noise/rain sounds I would look at that
  4. I would also try wave sounds
  5. The wish app on my phone had a bad habit of constant notifications, I didn’t get ads, but as a last resort I would try this app.

Some of these apps will only let me disable them. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP

That Reimage software that article recommends appears to be malware.
(also a direct link to a .exe and not the creators website, a red flag)
That also appears to be geared for PC, not phone.
That page is also very spammy with ads.

Thanks. I just thought about our cars blue tooth. Maybe it still has contacts there from syncing. Willl try and let you know
