The app after being updated has been opening on its own. Bringing up websites and links. Also opening up edge and chrome. This is happening if I'm checking emails, on social media outlets, pretty much all the time when doing something.

This is NOT common, and should not be happening. A browser never just opens on my phone. And if one did, I would know something is very wrong. First I would look at the newest installed apps, then I would run scanns for a virus. Unless you click on a link, nothing should just open.

@classyh You have installed something malicious on your phone which is causing your apps (Edge, Chrome, and Samsung Internet) to open. For troubleshooting, you can boot into safe mode. If the pop-ups stop while booted in safe mode you know for sure that it is a 3rd party app.
