    The new update has my phone going crazy also. I thought it was a different app. I came here to find out how to install from my Android phone. Can you get it without the update? If so will it still be bad for your phone? I had no problems that I knew of before.

    I have a solution for you guys. Go to Settings > Security > Device Administration. Unchecked ShowBox and you should be able to uninstall it.

    I was having this same issue with ads suddenly popping up on my screen randomly and it’s a pain. I reset my phone and it was still doing it. That’s when I figured out it had to have been Showbox, which is a bummer because I had never had that issue until the recent update. When I tried to uninstall it, it was greyed out, as if it wasn’t possible to uninstall. Apparently, with this new update, Showbox makes itself a device administrator. You have to remove its device administrator capabilities, and once you do that you should be able to uninstall the app.
