Hi
I am having issues with my new android phone.
I keep getting the YX - Fantasy game hijacking my browser.
This occurs on different browsers and with no apps installed.
I have tried removing and it keeps coming back within a day, even after a factory reset.
Any ideas?

Does this happen on a specific site or on all sites? It looks like advertisements on a site you visit is redirecting you to YX - Fantasy.

Let's install a browser that has a built-in ad blocker and see if you'll still see these pop-ups. Please install Brave Browser and then use it and let me know if you still see these unwanted ads.

Seems to be all sites but not sure which ones. I will install Brave Browser and see what happens

Many Thanks

Ads are back even after installing Brave Browser.
They seem to come back about 12hrs after factory reset. This is a replacement phone as the original did the same
No other phones have the same problem in the household.
