Hello
Many of you facing malware pop up ads on coolpad device. However i have one method to block or disable ads, but still i cant disable auto malware install
First your note 5 must be rooted
Now Download Host Editor apk and install >> here
open app and grant root permission
Now download this zip file >> here
extract this into your sdcard/hostsEditor

open hosteditor app and select BACKUP tab, select 3 dots and choose Refresh Backup
after our backup file will appear, select it and choose restore

after select Host entries tab, and you see this window

Done.
Now reboot your phone, and no more ads will appear on your display
but it wont prevent auto malware install

I have done something else to block the auto malware installation which was pretty effective in my case
I have installed NorootFirewall and blocked all connections of download manager. And I will mark it open whenever I need to install something over Google Play. This trick worked for me..Hope it will work for everyone. BoL..

Does NorootFirewall work on other devices, like Mac or something? I`d make use of it

Idk in exact ... And I don't think without jailbreak ios won't allow third party application to get into their system... Anyway I guess it's no place to discuss it. May be find some ios thread you may find your answer there. Thank you.
