I have a Galaxy S7 Edge with an Android OS on it. I have noticed that when I sometimes go on normal website through the Google app, it will redirect me to those pages where it says either "you have a virus" or "you won a million dollars". I have downloaded normal Antivirus software and ran with nothing there, but how can I check it deeper. It sometimes shows on websites I KNOW for a fact would never ever do that. Maybe hook it up to my laptop and run a scan from my laptop? Any apps you reccomend or things I should try? Anything helps!

What antivirus is running on the phone?

What you are seeing is malicious advertisements that popup. It is very difficult to avoid unless the website removes the ad.

Well I use a mixture of look out and malwarebytes, I don't use the real time protection with both because I know it conflicts. The ad is hard to describe because it seldom pops up, but when it does I have to exit the entire app because it's stuck on that page, it'll go to a page, with a pop up saying your android has detected a virus, it'll make my phone vibrate and it won't let me back out.
