    Uninvited Google Maps Icon and popup


    HP Computer running latest W10 Home V 20H2
    Wife opened Google Maps and mapped a trip.
    Sometime during that session, some kind of print popup showed up and continues to pop up
    at various times, uninvited. What is this and how do I delete it?
    The popup Image, below, happens when I click on the white "backwards C with dot" inside red circle, also below

    That doesn't look like anything from Google, which browser are you using?

    I enlarged the image and at the bottom noticed a message about Wake Up Daddy!, suggests a website of some sort.

    No help


    "Berton says:

    I am using Microsoft Edge browser

    Haven't found anything meaningful when I Google "Wake up Daddy"

    When I click on

    I get

    No idea how that icon gets on my screen. It comes up when I navigate to my credit union page. Some kind of a browser hijack? I am also getting unwelcomed ad popups.

    When I use Google Chrome, this unwanted icon does not show up.

    This unwanted icon shows up whenever I search on MS Edge but not when I search Google Chrome. How do I get rid of it?

    I would go to your Edge settings and delete all browsing data and after a restart, install Ublock Origin as an Edge extension.
    I assume you've already scanned for malware/virus/spyware...

    Check Edge Extensions (edge://extensions) for the PrintDirections extension.

    It has a home page at PrintDirections - Home

    Also it would be worth checking your Google Account, Security, and check your third-party access settings to ensure you know what has access to your Google account.
