Unable to MyLot without being redirected!

There was an Admin post about this just yesterday. You should probably add the details of your experience to it. However, your screenshot definitely shows something which is nothing to do with myLot. This message is produced by malware which is on your own computer already. You may need to download and run a reputable antivirus/antimalware program. This page may be useful, however:
This page contains instructions on how to remove "Your Computer May Have (3) Virus" pop-up virus from Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

It's become so annoying on my iPad that I will turn on my "restrictions" to "allow certain websites only," which automatically blocks the pop-ups from redirecting you to their sites. It does not stop them, though: you get a message that says "You cannot access this sleazy lying scam site because it is restricted," but that's better than the mass re-direct. I don't know if you've ever checked your "back" button after one, but there are 10-15 redirects from one pop-up. They are aware of it (Alex asked about it a couple of days ago) and are working on it. We get this about once a year.

"If you do not remove the virus now, it will cause severe damage to your PHONE." I thought you were using an ipad? I got a pop up as well (on my iPhone) telling me it has a virus and it freaked me out. Started to think that I have a virus on my phone. Then I realized it could't be true. But then thought what if that pop up gave me a virus. So, I cleared all my history and then updated to new iOS. Didn't try logging into mylot after that.
@owlwings is right, this surely is a malware and it has been discussed on different Apple forums. Many people have the same problem and they do not use myLot. Try to see if this can help.
You can fault virus creators for a lot of things, but not for their lack of creativity. Malware come

@kobesbuddy who knows? But I cannot believe that all of us are having this problem, many that I'm talking with don't have this problem when they visit any place else other than my lot, but then there are people who are insisting that it cannot be the site problem or a problem coming through the site, and it has to be our phones. I'm sorry lightning doesn't hit all these phones at the same time the only, and it has to be our phones. I'm sorry lightning doesn't hit all these phones at the same. The commonality is us meeting here at this site.
