RE: [Solved]Opera opening itself with anew tab with redirect link
@sgunhouse said in Opera opening itself with anew tab with redirect link:
Where did you get that version of Opera from? Looks like someone's idea of what a browser start page should look like, though I can't verify whether it is actually safe. If the phone came with Opera it is possible they set it up this way. If the phone didn't come with Opera and you installed it from the Play Store then it shouldn't be doing that.
It came with the phone with an older version and I updated it on the Playstore. The weird thing is, it's been 2 years ever since I got this phone, and it never did that, which makes me think some other app is the cause of this, even after I factory reseted and didn't install all the apps I had, just the very older ones, whatsapp, my bank apps, Reddit and Spotify.
I copied the redirect link If It helps:
Always leads to that happlay thing

I have a R1 PLUS from BLU
Your question reminded me of reports of factory installed malware on the devices of some smartphone vendors a few years ago, including BLU Products.
I've looked this up again, and although I don't know who or what is responsible for your specific Opera behaviour, I'd rather not recommend using your smartphone model.
Some links on this subject:
I don't recommend any BLU smartphones at all, they never updated my android and I have this full screen video problem on any browser that makes the video go tiny and place it on the top left corner of the screen then the rest of the screen goes green, happens with gifs as well.
