About this app

**IMPORTANT: This app does not block pop-up ads and not detect in-app pop-up ads. It will not tell you which app contains ads either. It only indicates which app is causing pop-up ads.

Are you tired of finding which app causes pop-up ads?

Popup Ad Detector comes to the rescue, it can detect:
1.Lock screen ads.
2.Home screen ads.
3.Ads over other apps.
4.Notification bar ads(Airpush detector).

How it works:
When you setup, you will see a floating icon on the screen.
The next time an ad pops up, it will indicate which app the ad is originated from.
Then you can easily uninstall that app so no more pop up ads anymore!

In order to make Popup Ad Detector work properly, You must:
1. Grant Accessibility access.
2. Allow displaying over other apps.

Known issues:
The floating icon might make some app not clickable. To solve this problem, you need to manually disable the floating icon, and enable it when you've finished using that app.

If you find the intrusive app causing pop up ads, please leave a review to let others know Popup Ad Detector does a good job!

This is a great app. I was so defeated when popup ads started plaguing my phone. Couldn't identify the source. This app identified the offender immediately and I uninstalled it forthwith. The cool feature is that the floating Popup Ad Detector icon is replaced by the icon of other apps when they are activated. I noticed the Samsung Wallet app icon was appearing regularly, even though I never opened it. Seemed sketchy, so I uninstalled it as well just to be safe. Really like Popup Ad Detector.

All I can say is...WOW! It really does work! For the past week, my android has been bombarded with constant pop-up ads. My phone battery drains within an hour from full charge and I can hear video advertisements playing in the background during phone calls, causing other applications to force close. I found the Popup Ad Detector and immediately after installation, the annoying popups were gone! After trying everything else in the Google Play store, I finally fixed it and I'm so grateful!

I don't usually write reviews for apps either but I just gave them their $5 for this app. It saved me in the middle of the night last night. I have an old tablet hanging on the wall as my clock & alarm. Suddenly in the middle of the night ads started popping up and playing annoying music loudly. I had no idea where it was coming from because the only running apps I had were paid (no ad versions). I found this app and installed it and in minutes found what app was doing the ads. Turned out to be a hacked/fake version of a legitimate app. I uninstalled it and the ads stopped and I went back to bed. Thank you!
