[Other] Virus AD popup out of nowhere.

After updating to MIUI 11, this image or some ad would popup randomly (i.e watching video, playing). It would either show this or would open Play Store telling me to install random apps. On MIUI 10, this never happened, but after the update, this occured more. I want to believe this is not caused by the software, rather it is caused by an app I installed. I deleted some suspecious apps but it still occurs. Please help.

When do you get these ads? You said watching video, but in which player? It definitely isn't caused by MIUI, as most system ads are related to Xiaomi products and/or other ads of interest. This must be related to some app that you may have installed. If you use a browser or any third party app for watching these videos, chances are it is related to that. Uninstall any unknown or any new apps that you have installed to sort out which app causes the issue. If problem persists, start fresh with a factory reset.
Cheers! :-)

I suggest, Never install any apps this pop up recommends. This is due to third party app adware. Turn off recommendations from that app or better uninstall that player.

As @happybuddist said this is not native xiaomi ad, I would suggest you to uninstall all non critical apps or even safer do full factory reset and reset your Google password to be safe
