    Sounds like you have allowed ads from websites online.

    If you use Chrome, open it, go to Chrome settings, Storage or Data Stored and clear Storage/Data. Also clear Browsing History/Data in Settings, Privacy. And also clear Chrome App info Cache as well.

    See if that helps.

    If you choose to install junk apps, then adds could be a side effect.

    And many of the users don't follow the steps we ask them to do. You can blame OnePlus all you want but if you want to get rid of ads, you gotta follow the steps to find the culprit app.

    Whenever the ad appears next time, go to the recents window and long press the app icon you see there. If you can't do that, go to settings and search for "draw over other apps" it could be "display over other apps" too and share a screenshot of the list that comes up.

    Okay, so this method clearly isn't working. The app is clever enough to hide traces. Next you can try is sharing the screenshot of the apps which have access to the draw over other apps feature. You can search for it in settings like I mentioned in my previous post.

    Okay, so you have found the culprit app. I have seen this exact same blank app on many other user's devices that have this popup ad problem.

    I'll ask you a question and, please be honest. I am only asking you this, so that I can find the root cause of getting affected by this blank app and help other users facing the same problem.

    You had mentioned that you started receiving these ads since the past three days correct? So just before you started getting these ads, can you recollect whether you installed any app from outside the play store? This is one probable cause of this blank app to be installed. Let me know even if you installed something from outside play store just for a second and uninstalled it later. One second is enough time for app to install some adware.

    The other is a slightly lower probability, since many users are getting these ads simultaneously, it is possible thay some app on play store might be injecting this adware by abusing a vulnerability but I really hope that is not the case and it is just an outside app.
