ROUND 2! Bug Hunters - Your Help Needed With Popup Ads

Kansas City, Missouri
November 22, 2016 9:35am CST
Thanks to everyone who helped with the popup ad reports over the last 24 hours. I deleted the original discussion to avoid confusion, and we can continue here in this discussion. The first round of edits didn't fix the problem. Another ad network has just been removed. So let's try this again... If you see a popup or redirect ad after reading this discussion, please post what you saw as a response to this discussion. Please do not post anything about popup ads you saw BEFORE reading this exact discussion. Only if you saw it afterwards. Thanks again for everyone's help! We'll get this figured out.

Why do I get the popups on my android, but not on my PC?

You may need to enable the pop up blocker for your android. This is usually enabled by default on pc

@1creekgirl Adblock has a browser for Android. It doesn't seem to have a whitelist option however. Unless i'm missing something.

The redirects are only happening when I scroll down the page. I got this fake system error thing twice

I will definitely send you information about a redirect. I had one about a day ago here. But not since. I knew MyLot was working on this problem. But I will say this, it seems like it is worse for some and not all of us users. For me it is very intermittent.

@digiguru It seems better than it was when this was written back in November.

Been here two minutes today, already had one redirect, it could be Malware seeing Webroot kicks in saying unsafe.
