Just recently, I've been getting fullscreen google ads pop up on my phone. This usually happens when I hit the back button out of an app. An example of the fullscreen ad is shown below:

Fullscreen google ad

I've done a bit of searching online and haven't found a fix other than deleting all third party apps and gradually reinstalling apps one by one seeing if they're the one causing the ads to pop up. This seems a bit time consuming! Does anyone here know what's causing these ads and how to remove them?

Much thanks in advance!

Adaway helped me get rid of all these ads. (Though, it was pre-installed in my previous ROM).

I'm using the normal KitKat launcher for the S4. Here are my apps.










Deleted a few apps I was skeptical about last night but again the full screen ad popped up this morning. Thanks in advance

Couldn't find Adaway in Google Play Store, but found an .apk for it on another site. Ended up getting, "Your device is not rooted," errors, even though my phone is in fact rooted. Strange.

Try to find some guides on Google to get this application. If you're so annoyed by these ads and you want to get rid of them (if you didn't find a way how to install previously), maybe you should consider flashing a custom ROM which has Adaway pre-installed?

Best way should be:

Root -> Xposed Installer -> MinMinGuard
