Redirect ads on mobile

Mon May 13, 2019 3:54 am

I am mostly using mobile. An annoying thing is how the advertisement monetization system also redirects the webpage to an ad (often fake lottery scam) while browsing here.

It happens on Safari and Chrome, haven’t tried any other mobile browsers.

So I'm not the only one that this happens to.. Happens to me all the time it seems like. Sometimes I'll even close the tab and come back to the site and it will happen almost immediately again, and then it won't happen for a while. Not the biggest issue, but certainly annoying.

Disable your JavaScript then the redirects cannot occur.

We really need a feature on mobile browsers where particular sites can be added to a blacklist, then script is disabled for those sites.

I also started to receive pop-up adds today on IOS. Did not get the links but one was for mortgage rate reduction offer, other was for a promised huge discount on watches.

This morning started to get pop up that I was an instant winner for online lottery.
Pretty aggressive as I had to close tab and reload site a few times before it stopped loading.

I had the same problems all day yesterday and a little bit this morning, to the point where the site was completely unusable on iOS mobile. It was for a bunch of fake Walmart gift cards.
