Whenever I browse to ATS from my phone I either get sent to some porn site or I get sent to appstore displaying a game. It`s extremely annoying... whats up with that ATS?

The ad scripting tends to use java to target ads for you, I get pop ups on my phone related to things that I have looked at on my phone.

ATS uses the DoubleClick and Google Adsense trackers to target it's ads to it's audience.

The ads are tailored for you based on your browsing history. Tired of seeing porn ads? Stop looking at porn..


Your technical help thread turned into a confession.

I never surf porn..........on my phone

So that doesn`t explain it. Are you telling me this has nothing to do with ATS? Because I ONLY get them when I visit ATS.

I highly doubt that. I don't get porn ads at all..

And if you have an Android phone associated with a Google account it will carry over your browsing history from your desktop/laptop.

I never surf porn either...

It has to do with the ad scripting they use, ATS needs to contact their provider (google) and tell them no adult adds.

Nope, checked my history now. No porn as far as I can see. And I also never check out games in the app store. So if that is a tailor fit I might as well return the whole suit because it`s waaaaaaaaay off target.

Must be an error in scripting...

I totally agree. It`s not a smart marketing move. I sure as «oppositeofheaven» will never check ATS in public knowing that some native language dirty movied ad might pop up on my screen.

the people here are gonna tell you that its because you visited a porn site
and the advert is targeted to you

but thats bs...you only have to be affiliated with one tiny website...to be enrolled in a mass advertising scheme
the adverts are based on that companies empire, and not the item yu looked at

ie.. if your male, and buy a pair of air mikes trainers.....mike air might send you an advert for a sports bra
when really, you should get adverts for other trainers from elsewhere in the market

anyway
just delete all cookies and browser history from your hardware


BTW... i was getting texts from a 69119 number...dunno why....didnt open them...when i finally looked at a bill...they took £1.50 for every text they sent.... i got charged even though i never opened them......
who needs to work hey...f`in criminal %^&&^%%%

I have no problem what so ever saying I have surfed porn. I`ll take a nekkid midget on a white pony any day of the week... just never on my phone. It`s annoying!

I can vouch for him telling the truth.
Well, of course I don't know him, but I've had the same problem. And porn is never looked at on my phone and my phone is never out of my site

Adtracking takes you out of ats onto the app store for candy crush saga game, and besides that, I've been sent to something called blue-ads (sp?) or something like that. I haven't seen actual porn pics off that site, it's not as often as the app store with the game. I hit the back button so fast that I can't remember exactly what the blue-ads are about - I think it's a hook up site or something. I get out of it fast - I don't want my phone messed up.

This only happens from ats.

Thank you!! I get the EXACT same game popup from the app store. I get something called DirtyMovies, only 69,- (local currency) Directly translated it`s actually RudeMovies, but you know what I mean. ATS!!!!!! PLEEEEEASE remove porn popups... and the game app thing if you can afford it.

It a package of sorts to some other unrelated site you agree to allow in to view. 'Could be anything. But, its you.

I think it's only a phone thing. The adtracking connects to the app store for the candy crush saga, which is some game that I've also seen advertised on facebook. I've never played it, or clicked on it but for some reason I get redirected off ats to there a lot. It could be facebooks fault
but it only happens from ats.
I don't even know what the game is about.
Maybe it's connecting me and the other member to the porn?

The blue-ad thing, which i think is a hook up site of sorts, is also from adtracking.

I only have a limited use air card for computer Internet at the moment, and I've never had the problem on the computer. Only on the iPhone.
I'm sure someone at sometime has looked at porn on my laptop, but the one thing I know is still "pure", lol, is my phone

I just had a redirect to a site that said not to go any further unless I was "over 18".
This was from the recent posts page.


Then when I turned the phone sideways to see the entire URL, I noticed my phone company was in the address.

my phone service provider might be the one peddling the porn....
It's Telus in Alberta.

Maybe other people's service providers are doing the same? But only redirecting from the site where we spend our entire day


I blame Facebook for the candy crush saga game......
