Im finding it increasingly frustrating that on a service thats paid for theres adverts, and since last week while navigating the website on mobile it pops up congratulating iphone user, this is the only site that it happens on and iv tried all the normal stuff of rebooting clearing caches etc
The second issue i accept can be a bug somewhere.
But having adverts taking up part of a page when iv paid to use the service isnt really justified, Had it been a free service i would accept the adverts

On the mobile version I normally get adverts at the bottom, pain in the backside.

Hey all

 

Sorry for the trouble with this. These are rogue ads that are sneaking in through legitimate ad servers. Pop ups and redirects are not a part of our ad strategy - if you see these, please copy and paste the full URL and report it via PM to this account. If you can also include a screenshot, it would be appreciated, but the URL is the most important part. 

 

The screenshot shows wyl.daily-sweeptakes.info - when you tap on that there will be a much longer URL with some personal information (device information, location, IP, etc) - that is why you should please PM those URLs directly to me and not post them here.

 

Tech will work on getting a block in place for these - the problem is these 'companies' keep changing the URL slightly, which gets around our blocks. For this, the more reports I can gather for tech, the easier it will be for them to determine a pattern and hopefully get it blocked outright sooner.

 

Thanks everyone,

 

Dayle

I have noticed the adverts when using the mobile version as well, although not as bad as the last couple of weeks. Struggle to use the full version on my phone (it's an age thing)
Cheers,
Bill.
