I keep getting this annoying scam pop up. It takes me away from PF and to a link that if I didn’t know better, would think was legit. Anyone else having this issue?
Its a problem with the PF platform. Thought they fixed it and for me it seems to be though a few days ago it did pop up. I also go on the boxer forum, the VerticalScope administrators knew it was their problem and fixed it. I presume they must know here too.I’ve been getting them several times today as well (iPhone 11 pro max) when trying to browse PF. It’s only been on PF and I’ve tried clearing my cookies/history, logging out and back in, and going on private mode and it doesn’t seem to fix it. I’ve had some tell me I won something through Facebook or my phone service provider company and then ones that tell me I have viruses. I screenshot one as an example.
I'm going to guess that you've tried clearing your history, and then it comes back, since you're the one shared that article with me? From what I've read to try and solve my own issue, that sounds like it could be adware? I think in that case you might need to check your browser for an extension that something put on there.For me, it pops up on all sorts of websites. I've never been able to figure out the common denominator. Good to know administrators have some control over it.
Sometimes they redirected me as well, in the same way. And they typically redirected me about 7-10 seconds into reading. "Guess what? You've won an iPhone X! Claim your free prize nooowww! Oh, you wanted to look actually look at that content? Sorry, not sorry!"Yep, I was getting both of those too. For me they are the amazon and google ads but they aren’t pop ups. It’s a complete redirect away from poodle forum to a new page that says I’ve won 5,000 or whatever other BS it says. It happens while I’m reading, not clicking. And I’m not able to hit the back button on the browser to get back to poodle forum. I just have to close that tab and open a new one. I’m also signed in, on chrome browser on iPhone 11. For me it only happens on poodle forum every few months or so.
Yeah, I think the iPad has a different OS than the iPhone, so it has built-in pop-up ad blockers as a security benefit. It might stop the ads that way, I think? So frustrating that this happens.Yes!!! I stopped visiting for the last 3 days because of it. I got both the google pop up and the virus pop up. I couldn’t get into PF. I was so bummed and wanted to deactivate my membership. I did everything I knew to do many times. It was only on PF and no other site. I’m on my iPad now and so far ok. The problem is on my iPhone. When’s I first got Bobby
1 1/2 years ago I visited this site a lot and then the same problem, and only on this site happened. I stopped using this site for quite awhile but after several months I tried again and all has been well, that is until 3 days ago. 😒
I've sent the links along for tracking and blocking, but for those who are reporting with Desktop, I'd like to know what kind of browser you are using. There is a thing called a HAR file that the techs have asked me to try and capture and it's a lot simpler to do from desktop then mobile
Ok. Next time you get this with your Mac's please try following these steps. It will get the HAR file we need
1. Open the Develop menu and select Show Web Inspector. (If you don't see the Develop menu in the menu bar, choose Safari > Preferences, click Advanced, then select “Show Develop menu in menu bar”.
2. Click the Network tab
3. Click the download icon (the arrow pointing down icon) and save the web archive file.
4. Let us know you have the file and we'll contact you by email so you can send it to us (site won't support the file type you'll have)
I hope that make sense. I'm not a Mac user myself, but I ran it by a co-worker who is, and they helped me iron it out
I clear my history and force close Safari. That does the trick, at least for a while.I'm going to guess that you've tried clearing your history, and then it comes back, since you're the one shared that article with me?
