Charge Boost the unwanted ad-ware lock screen.

Charge Boost the unwanted ad-ware lock screen.

 

If you’re an Android user, you have probably come across a new lock screen upon connecting your device to a charger. Meet Charge Boost, the unwanted ad-ware lock screen that is now bundled with free apps. If you didn’t know any better you would think your device was infected. In a way, it is. Adding an unwanted lock screen is adware, even if it comes across as a useful one. Charge Boost lock screen states that it will promote a faster charging speed but most users have found that all it does is slow down their devices. I’ve always been an ES File Explorer user and it has been my go to root file explorer but after the unwanted lock screen fiasco, I’ve switched. Not only that but they have other bundled apps like SD card analyzer which prompts for a quick analyze of your sd card upon opening the app.
