I was on the birthday present thread. Then it redirected it to a hard to get rid of plusnet pop up.

Using chrome on Android

Same here, Amazon Fire phone

Link to the BT pop up:

I was selected by Virgin as a prize winner...apparently hmm. Same as last time lots of buzzing and hard to get rid of. Wiped history and cleaned phone. Samsung android.

ladylambkin Sun 11-Sep-16 15:30:47

Me too it was a Virgin IPhone one..Samsung android

LassWiTheDelicateAir Sun 11-Sep-16 15:47:04

Me too

Samsung Galaxy 6 using native browser. At 13.00

Could only get rid of it by switching off WiFi and data and to make sure switching on airplane mode and clearing everything I could think of in settings/history and anti virus.

Query, my wife is BT and I was using it when this popped up, can it be programmed to identify the broadband server to make it more plausible?

Thanks for letting us know that these ads are popping up in again. The screenshots and url links are really useful, so thanks for taking the time to post those.

We've already alerted our Ads team as there's another thread running here on the same issue.

We'll be back with news as soon as we can.

In the meantime, we're sorry for all the faff. flowers

I've just had one of these too. Closed the browser page on my phone and it went away.

I'm on Samsung android but it had my isp in the title. confused

MermaidofZennor Sun 11-Sep-16 17:14:32

I got one of the pop up ads on my phone, same as others congratulating me on winning an ipad (BT user). Tried to close it but it kept coming back. Have got rid for now. Just reporting it to MN.

Another one here - Chrome browser on am Android phone - off a thread in legal matters. Didn't screen shot, sorry - was too busy trying to get rid of all the insistent vibrating and pop ups - but I did notice it was some sort of question about how long I'd been with Tiscali (I'm not and never have been).

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 11-Sep-16 19:48:38

Me too,ffs!!

Soupandasandwich Sun 11-Sep-16 19:57:53

This has happened several times today - I posted on the other thread. Most recently it's happened twice within a few minutes. Once as I tried to login and once when I opened this thread. Seriously, this is happening far too often now. As much as I love MN I don't think I can be bothered to constantly close the site and then login again. This is very similar to what happened several times earlier in the year. Each time we were told that it was something to do with the adverts and that tech was dealing with it. Clearly it's not been solved. Not sure how much longer I am prepared to risk my phone for this.

Another one from "sky". Chrome user on android phone.

oldsilver Mon 12-Sep-16 06:59:14

MyLlamasGoneBananas Mon 12-Sep-16 07:08:19

Same. Android on chrome. Samsung S5.

Didn't screen shot but mine says Dept of work and pensions worker you have won iPhone etc etc.
Just switched phone off and have run various mallard anto virus that haven't picked anyhing up worryingly.
Any advice on what I need to do to make sure my phone is safe?
