As per the title. When browsing ATS on mobile you occasionally enter a thread or move to the next page only to be redirected to a bull# "You have been randomly selected to win x thing" page in such a way that the browsers back button cannot send you back to ATS.

This means you have to use the URL bar to get back to ATS, find the thread you were reading and hope the same thing does not happen again.

I don't mind disabling an ad blocker for ATS, but please stop doing this!

Agreed, I thought I was the only one!

I'm about to get a mobile ad blocker because the ads are just too annoying and intrusive.

But they seemed to have relaxed a bit. Haven't seen an ad for a day or 2.

Your case seems a bit much though OP. What phone do you have and or what OS? You may have malware.

I'm running an iPhone 5s

Doesn't happen to me. I don't modify anything special and never get anything like you describe... Sorry.

PS Am on mobile-data or wifi... But I use desktop version not mobile... and never log in or out once logged on. Maybe that has something to do with it...? I never have gotten any redirects or auto plays... So it's not ATS... But something else.... Good luck. MS

Can't figure you guys out! Am on mobile and don't need any blockers cause I just don't get any of the stuff described... So if I don't... And use nothing... Then maybe switch from mobile to desktop view while on mobile?

Try it!!!!

It happened to me yesterday using my mobile for ATS while not logged in. Right there and then I won £5000


Redirect on mobile never happens when Im logged in though.

Started about 3 weeks ago...[snipped]
Only thing I can do is block the content from loading on the advert page...

Yeah. On mine it pops up, and then I hit back and it goes back to the search engine prompt and I have to fumble around opening the "New" page and try to reopen the thread and it hopefully not run the popup again thus triggering the same ordeal all over again.

If you have an issue about an ad, you should contact staff....or post to this ongoing thread:
www.abovetopsecret.com...


Closed.

ETA

Also, as a reminder...ad blockers are NOT allowed on ATS!!!!!
