Site rerouting to pop up advertising

Recommended Posts

I started having this problem yesterday, and it has persisted today. Either by entering the web address into my browser, or through clicking on links to threads or posts on this site, I get automatically rerouted to these pop-up advertising pages. The pages I get rerouted to are all of the "congratulations, you've been selected to when a free iPhone" variety.

I'm only noticing it on my phone, and I'm only noticing it when visiting aufamily. It happened two or three times yesterday and it's already happened four or five times today. Not sure if it is a problem with my phone or browser or what.

It's an ad on the site and it can be annoying. Sort of the price we pay for a free forum like this. I wish the ad sites would stop it because it's everywhere on the internet and makes browsing some sites impossible

It's extremely annoying. It's the sort of page that doesn't allow you to back out of. You have to type in the address again the browser to get back to where you were. Pop ups are one thing, but being directed to another web page is ridiculous.

Here's the ad.

Here's my browsing history.  Normally sends me through more redirects than this.

Exactly this. Didn't experience it yesterday though.

Chrome, Android, happening frequently. Veddy bad. Veddy veddy bad.

Not happening in Chrome on my Windows device. 

Not a problem on my iPad either. Seems to be an Android specific issue.

Just to clarify, this is just on Android?

In my case, yes. No issue in desktop or iPad. Just my droid.

That was my experience this morning. Happened again at lunch. Worst day so far. Usually it has gone away pretty quickly for me.
