How many times has everyone been browsing happily on ATS when out of nowhere you forced to a "your phone has a virus page.....please download now" and you cant back up or do much of anything except close the browser and erase the cookies and history and start completely over. Im friggin sick of it!!!!! Cut the bull!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nobodies buying that crap!!!!!!!! Your just infuriating people, ESPECIALLY ME!!!!!!!!!

Yes! This happens every time I'm on ATS lately. Extremely irritating. Please put an end to this.

Never happened to me. I use my phone a lot on ATS too.

Maybe you have a virus?

It happens to me a lot and also through Facebook's browser (on any page, not just ATS)

No virus scanners ever come up with anything on my phone but there's got to be something rooted in that avoids detection.

It's happening to me on my Kindle Fire. The message I get is one of those "Congratulations! You just won an Amazon Kindle! " things--just answer a few questions, blah, blah, blah. As the OP stated, you have to exit out, clean out your history, and then you can get back on ATS. It could be a virus--I'm going to check that out right now.

I've experienced both... highly irritating!

Hmmm all I see on my mobile is a steady series of Latino pick up sites. It's as if incognito browsing is useless these days.

I'm using Noscript. scorecardresearch.com, addthishedge.com and doubleclick.net are the only script sources disallowed. I have full access to content and posting on ATS with this configuration. I am not using Adblock. And not pop-up problems.

Does sound like malware to me.

On the limited chance I do use my phone for ATS, it has happened. It's a complete pain in the ass and when I try to back out of it, I have to check a stupid box saying "Prevent all further dialogue" or something of that ilk. And it makes my phone vibrate like a whore.


Luckily I opt for desktop usage. But I've felt your struggle.

I never get these. You have some malware on your device...

Fix it.

I had a problem with redirects on ats awhile ago...then one day they just stopped coming...thankfully.

though...still get redirects when I go to other sites besides google and youtube..

you can at least block the site from loading content using internet options settings (not adblock) so its not so bothersome.


eta: Interesting that this malware is affecting a lot of people these days

is there a conspiracy afoot?

I haven't had this happen at all on my phone or laptop.

Maybe it's your browser and not ATS?

I use an iPhone and Macbook. I never have issues with these kinds of popups.

Happens to me, too. It's always an ad that mentions Amazon in some way or another. It only happens on ATS when I use my phone and it happens with Chrome and that crummy Android browser. I don't know how to get rid of malware and I don't really care. I mean, really. If a virus popped up and made my phone completely inoperable I wouldn't even miss it. I'd just throw it in the lake.
