Hi.
DH and I have been married for 14 years and have 2 dc aged 10 and 5.
He is away with work ATM but back this evening.
Both dc have iPads which we all use - I am using ds1s now.
I just went onto the search bar and typed in skynews and a porn site came up - called U-porn mobile.
I didn't take too long a look but it's looked pretty explicit.
Am now wondering who the hell has been looking at it?
Ds1 (10) or dh?
Dh and I haven't been having sex much recently - due to illness and a family bereavement - but surely he doesn't need to do this?
No idea what to do/how to tackle this.
Need to ask dh if it's him obv, if not then it must be ds1?
I can't see how I can have done it...it wouldn't be advertised on the sky news website would it!?
Wwyd?

As I said crumpet...it was a pop up that came up when I tried to access the sky news website...same as mama.
All sorted now.

Never had a porn pop up unless someone has accessed porn. Just doesnt happen.

Badvoc just to let you know, this has just happened to me using my ipad for sky news too. I live alone, my ipad is never used by anyone else. No chance that anyone has viewed porn on it, yet that pop up is there. Very disconcerting for people with children that this can happen.

HerdyHerdwick Thu 03-Oct-13 19:30:56

Cross posted with Crumpet. My ipad has never been used for porn access and yet I've just had that pop up.

Badvoc Thu 03-Oct-13 19:31:18

Yes it is worrying.
I checked the browsing history crumpet...nothing til I accessed the sky news website this afternoon.

HavingAnOffDAy Thu 03-Oct-13 19:33:10

This happened to me on Sunday. I was using wiki for something on the iPad & a porn site appeared on the browser tabs shock

HerdyHerdwick Thu 03-Oct-13 19:40:17

I've just tried sky news again and it's not happening now. I do agree that it's odd - I know ads are usually linked to previous browsing.

ScarletLady02 Thu 03-Oct-13 19:46:14

If you use torrent sites, free tv streaming sites or anything like that you get porn pop-ups all the time. I know this as I have quite honestly NEVER searched for porn and I get them loads (my laptop was new)

They're only usually sex-buddy types sites, or "look at my boobs...click here" type things...you have to click on the links to see explicit things and I never do. Obviously if it comes up in the search bar and does the "predictive text" thing, then it's something that's been searched...well it is if you use Chrome anyway.

Badvoc Thu 03-Oct-13 19:52:01

The kids do watch videos on you tube? (Cbeebies etc) Is that the sort if thing you mean?
It was called u-porn mobile. You had to click to see anything but what I saw looked quite explicit.
I have gone back over 2 weeks on the browser history and nothing...it only showed up this afternoon when I tried to access the sky news website.
As it's happened to others too I am confident that's it's not dh or ds1. For a start, dh would know I could check the history. And ds1 doesn't use it that much and we are always present when he does. Neither dc has unrestricted screen time.
Even on you tube I tend to sit next to them so they don't watch anything unsuitable by mistake.

Badvoc Thu 03-Oct-13 19:52:35

Herdy...did you get the same site pop up as me?

Doyouthinktheysaurus Thu 03-Oct-13 19:56:15

This happened to me, yesterday!

My ipad, no one else uses it, same website.

Revolting image of a woman giving a blow job! I was only following a link to a story about the transsexual man who was assisted to die.

I've now put restrictions on my own ipad because it was vile!

SolomanDaisy Thu 03-Oct-13 19:57:55

This happened on our iPad earlier this week too. Bizarre. We have pop ups blocked too. Ours was a different porn site to yours.

Badvoc Thu 03-Oct-13 20:02:01

Do...that's the one I had too...it was gross sad
Have put the restrictions on but tbh the dc tend to only use it for things like you tube and gaming.

Doyouthinktheysaurus Thu 03-Oct-13 20:02:18

I meant same website as in u- porn! I'm not a prude well I might be but it horrified me. I said to DH, it's like watching Great british bake off and a porn film pops up! it's so out of context it's vileshock

DH has had it this week on his ipad too.

I followed the same link to the original news story where the pop up happened on my android phone and it didn't happen.

So glad it's not just us........

HerdyHerdwick Thu 03-Oct-13 20:03:13

Yes Badvoc it was u porn. I was using Chrome btw. Tried Safari and it was fine. Went back to Chrome again and it's not happening now.

HerdyHerdwick Thu 03-Oct-13 20:04:31

Exactly the same here, it was a blow job and the 'film' title was 'something slut', obviously I didn't leave it open long enough to see any more.

Badvoc Thu 03-Oct-13 20:04:50

How weird!
Thanks all for replying and putting my mind at rest goes off to bleach eyeballs
smile

Doyouthinktheysaurus Thu 03-Oct-13 20:08:25

It sounds like there may be an issue with the ipad!

It's not happened in the few years I've had it until this latest update!

DH has had it with 2 websites, a music one and one he was looking up for ds1 about minecraft!

The restrictions are weird, I had to put in my Number to access an arts and crafts thread todaygrin but hopefully I won't be seeing any more unsolicited genitalia!

ScarletLady02 Thu 03-Oct-13 20:13:24

Not youtube, they're very legit. The sites where you can watch TV shows (Breaking Bad, things like that) for free etc. They're not all illegal, but they do have to have loads of stupid links and ads etc on them to make them worth running I think.

HerdyHerdwick Thu 03-Oct-13 20:15:37

I'm hoping this isn't some new vulnerability due to IOS 7 which I already loathe with a vengeance.

TheCrumpetQueen Thu 03-Oct-13 20:15:57

Thank god for that, was worried your ds might've seen it. Guess their website has a virus, seems v unusual.

Makes you worried about innocent children seeing that sad

SolomanDaisy Thu 03-Oct-13 20:17:36

Not due to IOS 7 as we haven't done the update. I thought it was a different site, but actually the description of the page sounds the same.

Have you actually read the whole thread, nomorecrumbs ?

Soloman I wish I hadn't done the update!

I've just checked my iphone and it's not happening on there, checked both Chrome and Safari

Mama2bubs Thu 03-Oct-13 20:26:39

I had the BJ picture too, gross! Hasn't happened since, thankfully.
