Re: Ads redirecting on mobile

I'm one of the ones that complained about the problems a while ago, but I have had no problems at all in the last several months. Using iOS and Chrome.

Re: Ads redirecting on mobile

Getting hit hard this morning with redirects using an android cell phone. I am certain it is not malware on my phone because this site is the only one with the redirects.

Re: Ads redirecting on mobile

I don't know how Android and chrome work under the hood. This site was all-but-unreadable. I disabled chrome on my phone, which also removed the most recently installed version, and also cleared out all its data. Then I re-enabled Chrome and updated back to the most recent version. All is well now. All I can guess is that something bad got cached somewhere, and it kept going to that bad/cached data.

EDIT: Nope. They're still hitting me. Maybe it is my phone. But if it is, I have no idea why it is only this site.

It's not your phone. I've been hit today also. I didn't take any screenshots this time.

And now seconds later. The fact it shows the DVD Talk url and states deceptive site will be bad for traffic here.

Haven't seen it in a long time, thought my settings were blocking these, but I'm getting them again today also.

Re: Ads redirecting on mobile

I’m using iOS 11.4.1 with Safari, and NeverAds and AdGuard enabled and I haven’t gotten hit with this crap in ages.

You guys getting hit with these redirects might want to clear your cookies, cache, and history, and then install an ad blocker or two.

Same problem last night. Looks like IB has gone back to ignoring the issue as they haven't commented in this thread in over a month.

Re: Ads redirecting on mobile

And here we go again. My phone and browser are the same and have not changed since last time I reported those details, except maybe updated software.
