Default Clean Master app?

Anyone getting random shortcuts on your home screen for this app? I've installed something that generates shortcuts to install the app at the Play store. Spyware?

I have not, but that sure sounds like a virus. I would do a reinstall immediately just to be sure. Never know what it may be doing or what info it is sending out!

Sounds like Spyware. Is it a cleaning app?

Try CCleaner, works well with no Spyware attached

It was the Root Detector app. Uninstalled and the pop-ups are gone.
