Hi, I have an android phone that's running fine except that after clicking on a spam website I notice that my Google favicon now gets replaced by a '1 web' favicon. It doesn't redirect my webpage and nothing else seems affected. Malwarebytes and AVG aren't picking anything up but this is still strange behaviour that I want cleared, especially if it means my browsing activity is being monitored.

Does anyone know what this '1 web' thing could be and do you have any tips on how to remove it? I have screenshots if there's a function to upload them. Thanks

One way is to do it would be with a factory reset. Make sure you have all of your stuff backed up somewhere first of course.
