Anyone else getting "congratulations" spoken to them by their phone whilst browsing mumsnet?!

I always have my phone on silent but I have it on loud today as I'm expecting a call. Browsing mumsnet and a computerised siri style voice is saying "congratulations" over and over. I have a new Samsung phone, anti virus and I haven't clicked on any ads. Its freaking me out! Mumsnet HQ what's going on?!

I've now turned off media sound and left my phone on loud for ringing but anyway it's weird.

Yes! No pop up to go with it. I thought I was having auditory hallucinations confused

Yes, I had this about 5 minutes ago. Just once, though!

Thought it was my tablet going doolally!

Yes. Creepy.

I had it fairly recently, but had other browsers open to so just assumed it came from the news website I had open. How strange. Ran a virus checker after, but nothing.

OMG yes! It keeps happening! 6 times so far today!

This ad, on this page

I had it so much last week I couldn’t bear to use the site anymore, it prevented me from reading through threads or posting. It seems to have stopped this week though.

Yes it's just happened even though I have my phone set to vibrate

It’s not happened to me, but sounds mildly horrifying! Think I’ll be keeping my phone on silent when on mumsnet from now on!

Charley34 Thu 28-Mar-19 17:17:13

Yes this has just happened to me I'm fed up with the spam from looking at MN !

Soberfutures Thu 28-Mar-19 17:17:16

Yes I've had it today and have this add at the bottom of the page

@MumsnetHQ please get this looked in to and some kind of spam blocker added to your site/up your security thank you!

I had this too - right after I noticed the title of your thread in Active Conversations! Then the page seemed to freeze and I couldn't use the "back" button. Very peculiar.

How do I change my password on here does anyone know?

Yes just now, thought it was an advert on the phone. Just heard congratulations.

PerpendicularVincent Thu 28-Mar-19 17:39:11

Yes, me! It keeps telling me I've won an iPhone and it's obviously bollocks angry

ThreadKillerSleepsInACoil Thu 28-Mar-19 18:50:14

I'm getting it with an Amazon advert, apparently I've won something hmm

Also stops the back button working, back button just reloads the ad/voice.

LucyAutumn Thu 28-Mar-19 19:04:17

Yes I had this with no pop up. Killed the tab and started afresh.

Get Brave browser. It blocks everything and you don’t have to do a thing.

It can’t help with the voices though grin

It's still happening @mumsnet
