Was just on the Facebook thread and all of a sudden got diverted away from the page and given the attached pop up. Had to bash the back key (like a demented sea lion) to get back here.

I get these occasionally from other sites (yes ok usually slightly dodgy celeb gossip ones when my curiosity about Taylor Swift and Kanye gets the better of me) but have never had one on MN before.

Is it just me?

I had one which did the your phone is infected scam, redirected to by an advert that was accidentally clicked on whilst trying to scroll down the page.

Yes, I'm getting a tesco scam one occasionally on MN that I have to turn my phone off to get rid of it. Very annoying - mobile site on safari, iPhone.

I've had this twice tonight - didn't click any adds but all of a sudden redirected to random sites. I closed the tab before they loaded, but its rather annoying.
Im using a windows phone

GissASquizz Wed 20-Jul-16 17:54:49

Cocolepew Wed 20-Jul-16 19:17:15

Theres another thread in site stuff, posters are getting and live porn, amongst other things.

Cocolepew Wed 20-Jul-16 19:18:10

Usually your on/off button and the home button pressed at the same time Showy

TheHobbitMum Wed 20-Jul-16 19:23:33

Happening far too often now, some scammy pop up grrr! Please sort it

Sirona Wed 20-Jul-16 19:35:15

To add it didn't happen from clicking on any ads inadvertently. I was reading threads when suddenly it directs to what Pyjamas screenshot.

Hi there,
We're sorry about this, the Tech folks are on the case. Many apologies for the delay, in the meantime any details you can provide such as phone, computer, browser etc will help.

HelloCanYouHearMe Wed 20-Jul-16 21:04:57

Yep... me too
