A reset would certainly help. Those adds are almost always found to be connected to some app. When you do a reset be sure to add back any apps slowly so you know which one causes it to start happening again.

@userCgBZzXy0kg Any ads you're receiving would be coming from a 3rd party app. We can try to narrow down what app may be causing this. What are the ads for? When did you first start seeing the ads? And as @SamsungLarry provided, check your Device maintenance > App issue report.

Annoying ads on my Note 8 Lockscreen

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I got my Note 8 2 daysa ago and annoying ads come up on the lockscreen.  This didn't happen on the S7 Edge I had.  Is this something Samsung, Google, or another app put on? Any ideas on how to get rid of them?

Goto the Google Play Store on your device

Search for Application named " Adhell "

If it shows up download it

install ... ect

Shows up for my Tab S2 9.7 but not for my Note5

 

It's a Automatic No Root Android Firewall for Adverts

Best thing I ever put on my Tablet!

but your problem is probably a recently installed app 

 

Same thing happened to me before

I had downloaded some new, no review having, application from Samsung's App Store

so I 

Removed recently Installed Apps from Samsung's App store 1 by 1 testing for problem after each one by device restart

 

It ended up some being some Photo App using App Permissions I didn't exclusively grant it.

If you find it be sure to give it a review in the App Store with your specific incident, Helps others.

 

 

3rd party App Stores R A No No

 

Guess what?

Treat the Samsung App Store as a 3rd Party App Store

 

Check Google Play Store 1st

Samsung App store only if not on Play Store like the " Amazon Video App " ( Google Direct Competitor ) 

 

 

TLDR : Get " AdHell " App on Google Play

 

 Also Google may have removed it from play store as it blocks most of the " Google Overwatch "
