Hi. The easiest and sure way to overcome this misfortune has been to flash in a new firmware. No anti-virus has been known to have the ability to track down and remove the malware behind those activities. Please confirm if you have an AG Chrome Vibe device by replying below.

Hello, Trevor' Go to settings > Security and  'uncheck Unknown Sources'  This will stop the phone from installing apps from all unknown source except Google play store.

If there is a rogue app that is forcing google play store to download and install apps without your permission' please follow the instructions below to stop it.

  1. Go to settings> apps/application and navigate to play store
  2. Touch clear cache and data.
  3. Touch the home key and then open Google play store
  4. Don't check 'keep me up to date' touch accept and then Get started. 
  5. Open Google play store.
  6. Touch the 3 dots top left of your phone screen or touch the more option/action button below your phone screen and choose Settings.
  7. Touch 'Auto update apps' and select Do not auto up-date apps.
