    As I use my phone for finance & work use I try to avoid unknown apps & websites so I am unwilling to let the redirected websites load especially if they claim I have a virus and their website will remove it for me

    Thanks for getting us the images. Have they occurred for you since the you reported it?

    Thanks for the screenshot. Do you use Facebook on your phone as well? Sometimes just before coming onto the forum? We have found a link between ad pop ups on mobile devices and facebook and are looking into it. Any info helps : )

    Re: popup on android

    I do have Facebook on my phone and use it on occasion to send messages
    Unfortunately it's a system app that Sony put on the phone otherwise I wouldn't have it

    The last time was after coming to the site from a email link (spam report) using default email app

    Time before that I had been on the site for about 30mins without going to any other site or app

    Thank you for looking into the cause and trying to stop it from happening

    Re: popup on android

    I'm now suffering on my iPhone with a "game of war" ad that keeps on chucking me out of the web browser to the App Store to try and get me to download the game

    While I understand ads are needed to fund the forum this ad makes it virtually unusable on an iPhone as it try's to display the add on every page you navigate to

    Re: popup on android

    Can you please confirm if this is still occurring as we have made several block attempts toward the ad network that was causing this issue?

    Regards,

    Re: popup on android

    Which browser are you using when you see the redirect and were you browsing a specific section when it appeared?

    Also, what mobile device and browser are you using when the pop up occurs?

    Thank you!

    Re: popup on android

    Both happened on my Sony Xperia z1 using chrome
    The redirect was only visible because my phone asked if I wanted to open it in chrome or play store

    Popup happened when refreshing home page
    Redirect happened when I clicked on a thread on the home page (can't remember which one)

    I wasn't able to duplicate them but I'll send it over to tech and they'll try to track the malware down and block them.

    Thanks for the help!
