My friend has a Samsung Galaxy Edge 6 and she has recently started having some problems with it. It will randomly give her this error and she doesn't want these and she doesn't have "Line" on her phone. She has games it tries to have her install as well. These are only 2 screen shots, but how can I fix this so they don't keep popping up?

you are using some app or game that is shady and is giving you malware, or is actively trying to open these in the background. a list of installed apps would help.

Hungry Shark Forever, Tetris, Dumb Ways To Die and the other is Sudoku. Those are the only games she has installed... I will ask her for screen shots of her installed apps now. Thanks for the quick replies.

wow, way too many random apps that i have never heard of to troubleshoot this. best bet is to start uninstalling anything that is less that reputable on the play store. the fact that android is giving you the "unknown source" error means that something is trying to gain access to your system maliciously. but there are too many random apps on there for me to troubleshoot for u
