    A lot of websites have pop-up ads which redirect to Play Store. Do you get ads on homescreen or just in web browser while surfing on specific websites?

    You should install Adguard, it will block ads inside web browsers and all of these pop-ups will be gone.

    Ads like porn or something like application saying 'Your System is outdated. You need app for back up" or sometimes, it directs me to playstore where the app like a file mngr be downloaded.

    Never trust apps or websites like that who says you have virus or problems. They're all scams.
    Looks like its ads from some app you've downloaded. If its not showing now, then Zemana probably removed it.

    I used that anti virus and also the CCleaner. It works and now the ads are removed. Thanks for all your help.

    When I open my data connection, the ads will appear. Really annoying. But thanks to Zemana anti virus and Ccleaner. The ads already removed.

    Yes, adguard is available on play store or you can download from their website. I want to know which browser you using current.
