Default spam on phone

I think ive somehow got spam on my phone. i keep getting pop ups near the
notification bar wheveever i open apps, esspecially amazon pop ups.

Anyone have any ideas of getting rid of this. I've used system cleaner to clean caches.

Press and hold on the notification youve got, Then you will have a button that takes you to the information page of the app that post those notifications.just unibstall it as it is running in background and eats your battery

Press and hold on the pop up doesnt do anything and takes me nowhere.

Ive seemed to narrow it down to which app could be causing it though. its ZDlock app which i use to lock some apps that cant be accessed without a pin entered.

Does anyone know of any other apps to lock certain apps as this zdlock seems to be bloated with spyware.
