    This notification keeps popping up every day. I'm not sure when it started, but apparently doing a factory reset either didn't fix it, or an app that was downloaded automatically after the reset seems to be the culprit. I don't install "questionable apps" and have even run avast mobile security and bit defender to see if maybe it was some sort of malware. Both came up clean. Any ideas?

    Did you recently download a new app? I had the same problem with a zombie game I downloaded. Deleted the app and the ads went away.

    Yep, AirPush ads go away once you uninstall the origin app. Worst form of advertising ever, earns terrible reviews on apps.
