Battery Doctor has start spamming our Blackberry's

The app Battery Doctor has started spamming our devices every time we use the app.

 

When you press the Return button to leave the app it throws up a full screen advertisement and tries to sell you another app, then refuses to let you leave until you select and click on the "X" in the upper right corner or hit the BlackBerry button and select "Close".

 

This is becoming a support nightmare.

 

Does anyone know of a way to shutdown this "feature"? If not I am going to have to instruct everyone to uninstall this app.

Re: Battery Doctor has start spamming our Blackberry's

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

You'd need to ask the actual app developer that question, as they control what their app does. Failing that, uninstalling it would be the best choice of course.

Good luck!
