    Just started a few days ago. I get a pop-up ad that takes me away from Head-Fi. I have to hit back multiple times to get back to Head-fi. This is on my Galaxy S8.

    Thanks for the report @canthearyou, we're looking into this.

    To add some clarification, this is not something Head-Fi has chosen to allow on the site. These types of ads are not approved and we are hunting for their source so we can block them permanently.

    Thank you, @canthearyou for your report on this.

    If you see this again, can you copy the URL of the pop-up and PM it to me? It will aid us in getting these taken care of.

    Will do.

    I think it's my phone. I got the same ad on a different site.

    I'd definitely clear your cache and cookies on your phone to see if that might help.

    I'm still getting the ads. I cannot get a pop-up to happen on any other site if I do not have a Head-Fi page open in browser.

    If you can send me the clickthrough URL and a screenshot, it would be helpful to getting these taken care of.

    Thanks in advance!

    I can assure you 100% I have never been to an adult website on this device.

    @canthearyou - Thanks for your report. If you see something like this again, please PM me the details as you have here, and I'll investigate.
