I’ve been getting this constantly too! Also iPhone, Safari.

Same here, but iPad Safari.

I just had this too. iPhone, safari, on the thread about spooky stuff.

Icklepickle101 Sat 17-Feb-18 10:39:35

Me too!

Had a few days without winning one but my luck has obviously come back!

BarbaraOcumbungles Sat 17-Feb-18 10:40:35

I’ve won two this morning.

Me too! Twice this morning on my iphone

I’m fed up to the back teeth with this appearing and if you click to leave the bullshite it opens up the whole crap ad. The only way I can get out of it is to close the page and open up a new Mumsnet page.

I’m getting prize pop ups too. It’s incredibly annoying.

Well aren't you a lucky lot. grin

Except, you're not. sad

Thanks for letting us know that you're still winning these imaginary iPhones. We've alerted our AdOps team who'll hopefully get this issue sorted.

Aaaashhhhhh Just fuck if with your phones! It’s done it again! 🤬

Thank you, Dawn. BTY the fuck off was definitely not towards you. 😁

AgentProvocateur Sat 17-Feb-18 19:33:18

Is this any closer to being fixed? It’s driving me insane.

littlepill Sat 17-Feb-18 20:48:51

Just happened again to me

Owletterocks Sat 17-Feb-18 21:19:40

I have won 3 so far this evening. Putting me off coming on the site tbh. It’s so annoying

PositivelyPERF Mon 19-Feb-18 01:31:38

I’m ready for throwing this phone across the fecking room! These ads are getting ridiculous now. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve had to close the page and start again! 🤬

Have you deleted your browser history? That helped for me a while ago with adult pop-ups on MN. Happy to offer a good home to any unwanted iPhones 😁.

Largebucket Mon 19-Feb-18 02:22:20

If I’m looking at MN on my phone and it pops up, I find if I click the bogus “close” link and it takes me to another scam page, then I can press the “back” option at the bottom left of the screen and I get a list of recent web pages. If I click the page I’d just been on then it takes me back to where I’d been when the twatting message appeared.

Largebucket Mon 19-Feb-18 02:23:14

I need to hold my finger on the “back” button - pressing on it once does nothing

fukkigucci Mon 19-Feb-18 02:44:16

It’s happening to me too. Constantly.

AgentProvocateur Mon 19-Feb-18 07:39:36

MNHQ, are you any closer to resolving this? It’s happening more and more frequently.

CottonEyeJosephine Mon 19-Feb-18 09:32:21

I’ve won three already this morning!

Ishoos Mon 19-Feb-18 09:37:36

Still winning the imaginary phone. Please make it stop!

This has taken a little longer than we'd originally hoped for - sorry, folks.

We're nagging our adops team today - it shouldn't be long now. We'll keep you updated and thanks so much for bearing with us.

Hi All,

We are really sorry this issue continues to persist, we have been investigating with our partners and it seems that whatever was causing this issue last week has managed to cache itself in your phone's memory - can we please request you clear your cache and let us know if this fixes the popup from appearing.

To clear your cache for safari browsers you simply need to go into your settings, click on safari and clear history and website data.

Please let us know if this does the trick?

PositivelyPERF Mon 19-Feb-18 12:53:18

Thank you Lizzie I’ll give that a go.
