Stop Browser Automatically website opening in Android while unlocking

- Advertisment -

A couple of days back, I have downloaded an Android Apk file from the internet on my Oneplus 5 smartphone. But after installing it something bad happened to my phone. The Chrome browser of my Android phone starts opening spam website automatically; when I unlock my device. It was really annoying, I also used a couple of Antivirus software like Avast, Virus cleaner and more but none of them able to remove this adware from my phone. Then after an internet search, I came to know it is hidden app with no name which installed on my Android phone without my permission. Finally, got a very simple way to stop websites from opening automatically in the browser the in Android while unlocking it.

  1. Go to your Android phone settings.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Android settings
  2. From the settings menu select the Apps option.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Select app option to remove adware
  3. Find out an App installed on your phone with no name, I mean the app which is blank and only shows the size of the installed files. Usually, it resides at the bottom, so just scroll down to the bottom and you will find it. Please see the screenshot for reference.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 remove the app with noname
  4. Now tap on that blank installed app and select the option or button called Uninstall.                                                                                                                                                                                                Tap on the Uninstall button
  5. Confirmed the uninstallation by tapping on the OK button and it will stop the automatically opening of the spam websites in the Android browser when you unlock the device.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           uninstall blank application

      • Same thing is happening to me. I can’t uninstall or force stop because the buttons are disabled/unclickable for some reason. Help would be appreciated. Thanks

        • Reboot your phone and try the same again. If you still not able to uninstall the application then I would like to back up your data and factory reset the phone.

    • It is because some kind adware please use the above method and try to find and uninstall that. If you still not able to do that then backup your data and factory reset the device. Also, make sure in future never install any app except Google play store.

  1. Thanks aton … d abv solution workd ..ther ws a hiddin app with no name in apps … n now no more adds open ..Thanks again cheers 🙂

  2. I rarely post like this, but such a simple solution given by you. So many unwanted steps people and fools are mentioning to do are just worthless.
    Thanks a ton

  3. There is no other way to stop websites poping up automatically. A bug will be installed along with any suspicious app like language translation apps. Youshould back up all whatts app , facebook instagram and any other useful apps in google one drive. Then restore factory reset. While starting the phone just unchoose the option of restoring apps. Then, only data will be restored. Download all your needed apps again. Dont download the app which created the bug. In my android phone the apps created bugs are DUBSMASH , ENGLISH SPEECH TO TEXT , TELUGU SPEECH TO TEXT… unfortunately i downloaded all these apps from play store. I thought play store is most reliable, but its not.

  4. You’re a star, thank you so much. Problem solved. Was about to reset my phone and loose all my data but this worked perfectly. Thank you.

  7. I don’t have an unnamed app at the bottom of the APPS-list BUT I have it at the TOP. When I uninstalled that one, the problem was fixed
