Getting notification for offers.160tracker.com

A few days ago, I got a notification.... And, tapping the notification, instantly opened the browser to "You are approved for a PrePaid Debit Card!".... somewhere on http://offers.160tracker.com.

Today I got it again.

It wasn't an email notification. I don't know where it came from. But, its kind of annoying.

No strange apps that I know of on my Kindle Fire...is this supposed to be happening? How do I make it stop?

Contact CS on this one. Though if it is coming from a third-party app, they may not know which one. Please report back on what you find.

They are coming from an app you have installed on your phone. Go to Android Market and download "Air Push Detector" (it requires 0 permissions to run). It will tell you what app is sending the notifications to your phone. Simply delete the app and they should stop. For me it was an app called "Wedding Planning Checklist".

For a more detailed look at what different apps are doing on your phone try "Lookout Labs Ad Network Detector". For example, it shows you which ads are collecting location information for targeted advertising. Some of these you can opt-out of.

Good luck.
