***Administrative inquiry*** Re: re-directs

October 10, 2017 9:18am CST
We have received a good number of screen shots from some members, and we greatly appreciate it. @Mylotbugs is trying to nail down the source. We do have a question though. Is there a particular page this seems to happen on? (ie; "recent discussions" page, etc)?

For what I understood ONLY those who use their phones have this problem. I think that Bugs would like to know if this is the case. I use a desktop and I never had this problem.

@sol_cee @neildc This should prove that only the US users get this popUp.

Ohhh, @LadyDuck thank you for explaining that. I've been lucky so far that this has not happened again but I do recall about a year ago that it was happening to me. In fact you and many others helped me learn that it was due to a P.U.P. that had hijacked my browser and I got it taken care of and have not had the problem sense then.

@LadyDuck That is interesting as I use to get some popup when I was on here but that was months ago.

@LadyDuck And usually it's a bad site, the kind I would never go to.

For me, it happens when I am using my phone, and it's pretty random. No specific page.

I really hope you can fix this! That would be awesome. =) It happens on any page, just every once in a while especially while trying to sign in.

All different pages for me. The login in, the notifications, recent discussions, earnings, peoples posts. I wrote a post about it just few minutes ago, once I was able to come on from the pop ups, before i knew about this post. But forgot to mention getting the playstore pop up, that @CoralLevang mentioned here.

@CoralLevang yeah, very annoying. Wonder why its only or mostly happening to us using phones and not everyone?

I have had these redirects in the past. But nothing recently. I cannot recall what pages caused it though. Sorry I cannot be of help here.

Thanks for suggesting this discussion @LadyDuck . I did notice some pop ups claiming my smartphone has a virus I think it was when I was leaving a response on a discussion @GoAskAlice .

I had this few days ago but thought it was just my phone. I got on a bit ago and when opening mylot it began again about a virus from visiting adult sites which I've never done. Then I couldn't get in to see my own discussions without the same redirects. Now its leaving me alone but im at work and can't check OuT it much, plus I don't know how to do screenshots with my phone yet.

I recently have been getting that when I am on my iPad, which is very secure. It varies between going to discussions or commenting. It doesn't happen on any of my other devices. It just happened here while scrolling. Apparently, my iPad just informed me that I have won $100.

It’s reassuring that it isn’t only me. I am in Canada and have had these redirects on my phone. Hopefully you can nail the source. It happens randomly while on mylot and not when I browse elsewhere.

I get it on recent discussions the most but also on my notifications and posts by others.
