Redirection Spam on smartphone

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

While browsing on my phone I was redirected from the page I was viewing to this page:

 

 

It would be great if HF disable ads that will redirect traffic offsite. Thanks.

I'm reporting this to the tech team to take a look at, but:

 

  • What OS and version is your phone using?
  • What browser and browser version are you using?
  • What page were you on when you saw this?

  1. Android 2.3.4 version 4.0.2.A.0.42
  2. Default android browser
  3. I'm not sure about this, but I've encountered this issue twice. I believe this issue occurred on the subscription page at least once.

Appeared on the subscription list.

I'm not seeing this issue on iOS with ipad and no issues with chromium on mac or firefox on windows. Perhaps its just Android.

Is anyone else using Android seeing this?

The problem persists. This time appeared while I was browsing the orthodynamic thread.

It happened to me 4 times already. When it happens there is no way of getting rid of it so I end up rebooting my phone... I never had this problem before until now.
