    Cool Spam Advertisements in my notifications

    Hello TransformerForums,

    First I want to say that I'm grateful to have found this wonderful resource. I've read through these posts, learned many tips, and have picked up specific apps after being recommended by someone here.

    I'm coming to the forum as I've apparently introduced something on my TF300T that is causing "Now Hiring" advertisements to appear in my notifications area, with a star icon on the side. I'm used to finding all kinds of notifications in that area, including some emails and application updates. I'm hoping that someone can help me rid my otherwise awesome tablet of this nuisance.

    Thanks
    Scott

    It is more than likely from an app. Free apps are natorious for ads like that, I know go keyboard does it to me about once a week. Still thinking about uninstalling that one. I would look for what app it's coming from. I know there are some security apps out there that will help you out, I'm just not sure what their called at the moment.

    Battery saver apps and free wallpaper apps is where I would start looking. I have heard of quite a few of those causing issues.

    Also, try uinstalling any apps you don't use regularly (back up the data with App Backup before uninstalling if it is a game or something that you want to keep your progress).

    Reboot and see if it goes away.

    You have an app that is sending push notifications to your tablet. This would show up in the App Permissions. You can download addons detector from the Google play store to find apps with push notifications:
