    Are you using Facebook app or regular browser?

    You can try Adguard possible it might work ...I don't have Facebook left that long time ago though I'm sure they are still tracking

    I only see those "you have won..." "you are the one million shopper..." type of popups on suspicious and or malicious websites. I didn't not think you can stop them, other than avoiding those websites. I doubt you saw that on facebook.com or in the Facebook app.

    It's on random articles in the Facebook up. You click the article and it opens up to read but once you start scrolling through it pops up an says you win and please fill out a survey it's wicked anoying. I think it's embedded popups In the ads on the page .

    I use Adgard in this case. Also I started using vpn from https://veepn.com to protect my privacy online. It provides a high level of security and helps me to get access to the any blocked content. Internet security is an important issue today.

    If you are using Chrome browser, just add the adguard extension. Adguard works too but you have to pay for it after a 7 day trial.

    I'm not sure if it will work on the app ...I remembered using an ad blocker on a previous phone while ago that helped on the apps ...can't remember now of course ...

    You can not fully opt-out of advertisements but you have a say in which advertisements you see and which data is used to pick such ads.
    You can directly click on any ad and choose to clearly hide it, hide advertising from the advertisers, or find out why you see it in the first place.

    SMYDSMITH, I used to have the same problem on Facebook. I recommend you stop clicking ad, game, and survey links directly. Look up the companies online using Yahoo! instead--Google sells all information they get.
