    blackberry priv - how do I track down where unwanted advertisements are coming from - I can launch an app and have an ad pop up unrelated to the app - where in settings can I disable ads - I've tried going through individual apps - but is there a general setting I am missing - Thanks

    ads are often part of free apps and they wont be related to the app at all either.

    No, there's not a general setting re ads. I don't have it happen on my priv, but I don't have a lot of apps.

    I suspect that you're going to have to eliminate an app one by one to see which one is causing it

    Re browsers, do you use firefox with ad blocker turned on? Or another browser that has an ad blocker?

    If you launch an particular free app and an ad pops up, then the app you just launched is probably responsible for the ad. Look the app up in Google Play and see if the description says it includes ads.
