Yes. gestyy.com I've searched for how to remove it, but all the directions I see are for PCs. This is on my Android cell phone and they aren't applicable.

No, not any apps. I did put a few shortcuts to some recipes on the home screen, but I deleted them when I read the directions for the PC. I downloaded Firefox after all that, but I don't really understand how to use it or if it can help.
